Bobble to the music of the Dead
Through the wonders of eBay you no longer have to buy a baseball ticket, travel to the stadium and pay for parking. We've seen these priced online for $40-70. Some eBay vendors are even throwing in a ticket stub from the game -- but only if you request one. Fans who make it to the stadium have the bonus of hearing Grateful Dead tribute bands perform.
The Giants are celebrating the life and times of the San Francisco native and legendary jam guitarist on the anniversary of his death (he would have turned 68 on August 1). We have to admit the Jerry Garcia Bobble is more "lifelike" than many of the dolls we've seen. The hair, beard and mustache are much nicer than the cheesy mustache they put on Brewers Hall of Famer Robin Yount's doll recently.
By comparison the Italian Sausage Bobblehead that was given out Sunday at Miller Park is selling today on eBay for only $10-20. Now what's that all about?
