I picked a single day and just entered "Bobblehead" as the search term on Ebay. There were 476 pages. I figured I'd go through 50 or so and then just couldn't stop, there was so much humor in it. I learned a few things: some bobbleheads are truly awful; they'll make a bobblehead of anyone, at any level, anywhere; and the San Francisco Giants have a 'Rally Rabbi'. And you can purchase a bobblehead of him.

Also, there were so many good bobbles that if this one goes over well I will eventually do more quizzes- an entertainment one (actors, singers and the like), a history one (presidents and their ilk) and a fictional characters one. Oh, and yes, that is indeed a bowler in the bottom row.

It would be the best source ever if it actually worked.
Apr 10th, 2010 at 04:24 GMT
very nice, good mix of older guys and new, main stream sports and odd ball sports. thank god for the uniforms in many of them or i would have been in big trouble.
Apr 10th, 2010 at 04:27 GMT
Sorry about the source line d3bates, I've fixed it now. I forgot that I needed to type the "http:/" in front of the address. Thanks alleycat9. I tried to mix them up. On the more difficult ones, I tried to crop the photos so that the uniform gave you some hint.
Apr 10th, 2010 at 05:05 GMT
This quiz is so original and so funny! Kudos to the extreme!
Apr 10th, 2010 at 05:49 GMT
Hejman! I'm proud of you! Awesome quiz bro! and wow the Landon Donovan one is just god awful! And I'm not sure you can call Pete Weber an athlete, lol. Very cool, you are the man, love your quizzes.
Apr 10th, 2010 at 05:53 GMT
Thanks Troublemaker. See, it's NOT a "History as we heard it" quiz! I think I agree with you on our bowling friend, but I'll avoid the "who is and is not an athlete" debate for now. Just be glad that there were no figure skating bobbleheads on ebay that day.
Apr 10th, 2010 at 11:55 GMT
Great quiz. And Im hoping Im not alone in seeing #7 and saying to myself "Easy, Sgt Slaughter"...then when it didnt come up, having to look at it again and saying to myself "Youre an idiot".
Apr 10th, 2010 at 12:36 GMT
Hats off to Pete Weber

How was number 9 Yao Ming?
Apr 10th, 2010 at 13:03 GMT
I thought Yao Ming was Dan Majerle with a Rockets uniform.
Apr 10th, 2010 at 14:29 GMT
Eff you Crosby
Apr 10th, 2010 at 16:25 GMT
9 looks nothing like Yao, but great quiz
Apr 10th, 2010 at 16:39 GMT
ptg723 I actually put in Majerle and when it didnt show up I thought what white guy would they make a bobblehead of from Houston. I wouldve guessed Ming if it looked anything like him,I just didnt bother typing it in.
Apr 10th, 2010 at 16:57 GMT
I did a wider crop of the Ming bobble in order to leave the jersey in and make it more reasonable. More than 80% are getting it right, so hopefully it's helping. As I noted in one of my earlier comments, though, there are some truly awful bobbleheads that look nothing like who they're supposed to be. I saw one of Miguel Tejada that I first thought was Cal Ripken. I repeatedly saw one of A.J. Hawk that would give small children nightmares.
Apr 10th, 2010 at 18:39 GMT
i love how the michael strahan one has the gap in his teeth
Apr 10th, 2010 at 21:47 GMT
It's throwback today I guess, but those were the uniforms when he was drafted.
Apr 10th, 2010 at 22:19 GMT
Isn't Prince Fielder black?
Apr 10th, 2010 at 23:54 GMT
WHY is "shaq" hardly ever an accepted answer for Shaquille O'Neal on this site?
Apr 10th, 2010 at 23:58 GMT
Statdis- when I typed in the answers, I originally had "Shaq" accepted as an alternate. But it threatened to get ridiculous. If I accepted Shaq then why not 'Tiger' and 'LeBron' and 'Junior' etc., etc. Eventually, I just took 'Shaq' out and added the note to make it clear that first and last names or just last names would be accepted. Hopefully that lets everyone know before they start that 'Shaq' alone isn't going to cut it. For what it's worth, my 'Sports History As We Heard It 1' quiz does accept "Shaq" as an answer.
Apr 11th, 2010 at 02:08 GMT
Wow, More people get Eckersley over Strahan? That gap is obvious, people!!!!
Apr 11th, 2010 at 02:58 GMT
Props for putting two Mariners on there!!
Apr 11th, 2010 at 07:24 GMT
I love the Landon Donovan bobblehead because it looks NOTHING like him.
Apr 11th, 2010 at 15:26 GMT
Can you accept Yao? It is his surname and is also what appears on his jersey.
Apr 11th, 2010 at 15:58 GMT
Can do, NCBerge. I had "Ichiro" as an accepted answer, so I'm not sure why I didn't do the same with "Yao". Thanks for catching that.
Apr 11th, 2010 at 19:25 GMT
stupid pete weber.

Many thanks to everyone who enjoyed the quiz or who had suggestions for corrections or improvement. Your assistance and constructive criticism are, as always, appreciated.

Serena looks more like Carmelo Anthony.
Apr 12th, 2010 at 19:34 GMT
It was fun. I missed 3 in the end. Ichiro looked too Spanish to me, though I knew that I recognized the pose. The King one was just tough. The Strahan one is obvious now with the gap in the teeth, but I was insisting it was a 49ers jersey. Fun quiz, even if Yao Ming looks like Shawn Bradley.
Apr 12th, 2010 at 19:55 GMT
Totally agree Jaysee. I kept thinking it was Carmelo Anthony in a pink uniform or something.
Apr 13th, 2010 at 19:06 GMT
Any chance the Rodney McCray bobblehead will end up on a sequel? :D
Apr 13th, 2010 at 20:54 GMT
@OilFan- only if someone lists one for sale on Ebay. All of the pictures come directly from those listings.
Apr 14th, 2010 at 15:00 GMT
#25 - I didn't know Tom Selleck played for the A's.
Apr 14th, 2010 at 20:00 GMT
u should accept shaq
Apr 14th, 2010 at 21:46 GMT
On the plus side for Landon Donovan, his bobble doesn't make him look that bald. On the minus side, it makes him look cross-eyed!
Apr 16th, 2010 at 14:48 GMT
it would be a lot tougher if it didn't show the jerseys ex. #2,6,9
Apr 16th, 2010 at 16:28 GMT
The jerseys are intended to be a specific clue as to who is in the picture, particularly for those where the bobblehead is not a very exact likeness of the athlete (i.e. #9) or where the athlete has worn a great number of different jerseys of late (i.e. #2). In others where the jersey is not shown, the decision was intentional because the bobble itself should be sufficient. I always try to have a few easy, a few hard and many in between.
