When the Oakland A’s were rumored to sign Manny Ramirez, I was wondering if Manny would be my next bobblehead project. I decided to get two bobbleheads the Dodgers gave away in 2009 in hopes that he would sign. This was the first time I had ever bought a bobblehead of a player that had yet to sign.
But when Ramirez finally signed, I started to think about how I wanted to approach the two bobbleheads. I finally got around to painting it this weekend and this is how it turned out.
Here’s a slideshow of my two-day project.
Overall, I am very very pleased with this. Let’s hope he can justify my efforts with a good season.
