Look closely at the photos above and tell me what you see. At first glance, you might see another typical bobblehead that looks nothing like the person it is supposed to be. The face is not very Roy Halladay, but what else is new? This lovely collectible is available for purchase at MLB.com and was brought to our attention by this Halladay fan blog. Have you figured it out yet? For those of you who haven’t, we’ll just spell it out for you. This thing pretty much throws right and left-handed.
The leg kick and body position are accurate, but somehow the glove ended up on The Doc’s right hand and the ball in his left. I guess we should just assume he had taken his glove off to clean the ball and was about to put it back on but decided he felt like throwing a pitch in the meantime. If that’s the case, we’re wrong and this piece of memorabilia makes perfect sense.
Bobbleheads like this one may be some of the creepiest things we’ve ever seen, but at least someone put some effort into making them.
UPDATE: Because of people like us who like to make fun of people, the MLB has pulled this item from their inventory.
