Don’t show this to any Pirates fans, because they’ll scream that bobblehead Sid Bream should have been called out too.

Bobbleheads have evolved from a generic, unnamed player with a goofy grin on it’s face sporting a ball team’s uniform to what you see above—an exact replica of Sid Bream’s famous slide to end Game 7 of the 1992 NLCS that propelled the Atlanta Braves to the World Series (where they eventually lost to the Toronto Blue Jays), complete with Pittsburgh catcher Mike LaValliere and umpire Randy Marsh calling Bream safe, again, much to the dismay of Pirates fans old enough to remember a time when the Bucs were perennial World Series contenders.

The first 20,000 fans through the gate for the Braves game against those same Blue Jays on June 9 will receive this bobblehead masterpiece, and if you’re one of the lucky people in this world that gets their grubby mitts on this gorgeous piece of bobbleheaded goodness, display it with pride, preferably on your mantelpiece (if you have one) in place of your wedding photo, loved one’s ashes, or other treasured heirloom.
