Card of the Day: 1999 UD Choice Mini Bobble Heads Tony Gwynn
Before the rush on bobbleheads as stadium giveaways, Upper Deck released a mini version in 1998 Collector's Choice and 1999 UD Choice.
These mini bobbers were great for display purposes, but they didn't really catch on with collectors.
The cards came in two parts: a body and a head. When punched out, the remander of the card became a base for the bobblehead to stand on.
I enjoyed them very much, but I am also a bobblehead collector so I probably have a small bias.
