The Value Of A Sport Bobblehead - Articles Surfing

It has to be emphasized first of all that a bobblehead has to represent a person or character of a certain organization. Thus, if you are looking for a sport bobblehead figure to have mass produced, that sport bobblehead has to have some kind of significance to you and to anyone who will be the recipient.

Take, for instance, a sport bobblehead modeled after Hideki Matsui (a baseball player with the New York Yankees) ' the value of the official sport bobblehead is that it comes as a Limited Edition product, meaning there are only a few of them made at one time so that the uniqueness and exclusivity of the product is retained. A sport bobblehead made by the millions has less uniqueness and maybe no exclusivity compared to a sport bobblehead under a Limited Edition manufacturing license.

This is where the concept of a collectible sport bobblehead comes in. A sport bobblehead that is made in a limited volume (like, say 500 items only for that type of bobblehead) is deemed more collectible (or has a higher value as a collectible) compared to a sport bobblehead that has been made by the millions. Even if the quality of manufacture is comparable or even exactly the same, it is the uniqueness and exclusivity of the sport bobblehead that will determine if it is a true collectible or not. And the value of a collectible lies with the perception of a person doing the collecting. A person who values one sport bobblehead of Michael Jordan will pay a good price for it even if that edition was made by the millions simply because the collector thinks that sport bobblehead has a good value for him.

Does a sport bobblehead have to be highly expensive to be highly valued? Not at the start, no. For instance, if you bought your Michael Jordan sport bobblehead back in year 1990 when it was priced at $19.00 but nowadays (due to the scarcity of Michael Jordan sport bobbleheads) is priced at $100 each, you may observe that the rise in financial value of your bobblehead was due to the lower supply at present, the rise in perceived value of that bobblehead version among collectors, and the fact that Michael Jordan is no longer as active a player as he used to be. There is a saying that for memorabilia of celebrities to go up in value, it helps if the celebrity in question were to die. Though we don't necessarily want Michael Jordan to die yet, if he does pass away soon, rest assured practically all sport bobblehead items out there made in his likeness will shoot up in value real quick.

In sports, your value as a player rests a lot on your performance per season. But there may be players who are not so scintillating yet still remain quite popular among their fans anyway. For such players, the love of their fans will keep their memory alive even when their performance has left them on the reserved players bench for the rest of the season.
