1962 Bobbing Head Nodder MICKEY MANTLE - MINT in BOX !!
Starting offer 99 cents !!! .... Absolutely !!!
Invasion of the Bobbing Heads !
Manufactured in Japan and issued in 1962 were the 1st waves of player bobbing heads that started a craze in pop-culture collecting. Four of the game's top players were made into paper-mache dolls in the land of the rising sun: Willie Mays, Roberto Clemente, Roger Maris and of course, Mickey Mantle. Offered is a "gem" of a Mickey nodder, looking like an UN-circulated, old store stock specimen, this beauty is virtually perfect, in MINT condition. It boasts all-original white and blue paint with absolutely ZERO cracks or chips and blessed from birth with a perfect decal. Included with the Mantle doll is his vessel, the original factory box that has kept him in pristine shape for nearly five decades (even the original cardboard protector around his neck and the factory packing tissue are present !!!) The box has some shelf wear including a piece of tape on the left edge that was probably applied there to seal Mickey in his tomb for hibernation over the years but it is complete, structurally sound and displays perfectly with the doll.
More bobbing head dolls featuring players, celebrities, politicians and other characters would follow suit over the next half century from dozens of manufacturers. The Mick will always be part of that first wave that started a trend. And it's a GORGEOUS investment grade specimen - looking just as he appeared when he first came to America back in 1962 !
As with ALL our sales, there is so offer to WIN !!!
