For Boston Red Sox bobblehead dolls, MLB.com -- the official Major League Baseball site -- is probably your best bet. They have a good selection and the prices are the same as you'd find just about anywhere else. So, why not go direct to the source?
If you have the time, and/or if you're interested in the antique varieties (they've been making "bobble-head," "bobbin head," and "bobbling head" sports dolls for many decades!) check out eBay. You'll find more choices and some better deals.
Here are some live eBay auction prices for Boston Red Sox bobblehead dolls:
If you're a bobblehead doll collector, you may want a guide book. Dan Zachofsky's Handbook for Collecting Baseball Memorabilia is a good source for information on all sorts of baseball collectibles, especially if you're new to the hobby. There's also a guidebook by Tim Hunter called Bobbing Head Dolls: 1960-2000.
By the way, eBay is also your best bet if you're selling an Boston Red Sox bobblehead doll. Auctions have always been the best way to get the real value of your items, and now thanks to eBay's active sports memorabilia auctions, it's easy for anyone to auction off their dolls. (A mainstream brick-and-mortar auction house will generally only deal with you if you have a large collection to sell. And they'll take a percentage of the total sales, say 10 to 25 percent, for their service.) Click here for eBay, or eBay UK or eBay Canada if that's where you're located.
Good luck and have fun!
