Lou Gehrig is one of the best baseball players ever. Back in 1969 he was voted the best first baseman of all time by the Baseball Writers’ Association. He has his own trophy given out to the player with the most integrity and character . He was truly a special player and I think the Yankees got it spot on with honoring him in this promotion with this Lou Gehrig bobblehead. The pants are probably the most accurate detail of this bobblehead. The baggy tuck is exactly what he and others would wear at the time, so that’s a big plus. The logo is in limbo for the time being because of the lack of clarity. When I first looked at it I thought that it wasn’t the logo he wore back in the 20’s and 30’s but the more I look at it the more indecisive I am about it. I do think some other minor details could have been done better. For example the striping is too big. It could have definitely been shrunken down to have more navy blue stripes. The hat is also not proportional to the head. The hat could maybe fit on his ear. I just wish that it would it be a little bigger. He also wore stirrups which don’t appear to be present. The base is also confusing to me. What is it supposed to be? What is that dot next to his left foot and why doesn’t the microphone have a stand? As far as I know Gehrig never had a broadcasting career so the microphone is confusing. I do like how AT&T doesn’t stick their logo on the bobblehead, unless it’s on the back. Overall, you need to get this Lou Gehrig bobblehead. Not only is he a legendary player, but this collectible Lou Gehrig bobblehead could be worth a lot. Make sure you buy a ticket!
