Rovell: New Bartolo Colon bobblehead also features bobble stomach

Watch it wiggle, see it jiggle…

On Thursday night, Clark Toys posted an offering from Forever Collectibles: a commemorative Bartolo Colon home run bobblehead that also has a bobble stomach.

In less than 24 hours, Clark Toys has sold more than 500 of them.

“Most of the bobbleheads we sell are limited to 360 pieces and they take months to sell,” said Travis Pyan, managing partner of Clark Toys. “When the buzz on this item started this morning, we sold 100 in 30 minutes.”

Pyan said he can’t remember any athlete bobblehead that was ordered faster than Colon’s.

“In 2008, we sold 600 Barack Obama bobbleheads on the night he was elected,” Pyan recalled.

The Colon bobbleheads are limited to 942 pieces and cost $39.99.
