Mr. Royal Bobblehead
The Kansas City Royals are honoring this throwback day with a throwback giveaway. To be honest I’ve never heard of Mr. Royal ever before and
I can’t find that much information on him. Well after looking some more I found out he was on a 1979 program. I do think that he’s pretty unique. He reminds me of King Boo from the Mario series. That could just be me though. So I can’t really grade him on historical accuracy. From the few cartoon drawings I’ve seen of him the Mr. Royal bobblehead looks pretty accurate. In both cartoons I’ve seen it appears as if he is a lot smaller and fatter as opposed to this tall Mr. Royal bobblehead. The cartoons also show that he is a baseball and not just a blank head.The crown is a nice touch especially because it fits with the theme throwback. I also love the stirrups. I wish the Kansas City Royals would have put him in a different position or something. I think that if you are going to have a bobblehead with a bat in their hands that they should at least have a plate around them. It also looks like he is holding a wiffle ball bat. I think that if the Royals used him more often or if I had known more about him that I might have high opinions of him. I still would go for the throwback feel and buy a ticket for the game for this super cool Mr. Royal bobblehead.
