Jeffrey Loria Is Sending His Bobbleheads To Cooperstown

Outgoing Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria is taking one of his prized belongings, his collection of 900 bobbleheads, and giving them to the Hall of Fame in Cooperstown. The remaining 300 to 400 bobbleheads that weren’t part of his private collection will continue to be displayed at Marlins Park.

Those bobbleheads are perhaps the best reason to go to Marlins Park.

The sale to the Jeter-Sherman group closed today, too. They better make sure Loria didn't walk away with whatever wasn't nailed down.

I mean, it's not like he would carry away all the computers, routers, Ethernet switches, paper records, award trophies, Paymaster and postage machines, Keurig coffee maker and all the K-cups, staplers, paper clips, tables, chairs, fake plants, and that painting of Trump hanging on his office wall, right? RIGHT?? He would NEVER do THAT!

Loria has a 900-bobblehead private collection? What, did the Marlins have a "first 1000 fans in attendance get an Adeiny Hechavarria Bobblehead Night"?

Is David Samson one of the bobbleheads?

Pat on the back to anyone who sends Loria's head to Cooperstown.

Indiana Jones had his Ark of the Covenant stored in a giant warehouse never to be seen again. I imagine Jeffy's bobbleheads will suffer the same fate.
