Philadelphia Phillies vs. New York Mets Rivalry Bobblehead Unveiled
Limited Edition bobblehead commemorating the Philadelphia Phillies vs. New York Mets rivalry is now available for purchase exclusively from the National Bobblehead HOF.
MILWAUKEE, Wi., May 11, 2018 – – Today, the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum unveiled an officially licensed bobblehead commemorating the NL East rivalry between the Philadelphia Phillies and New York Mets. The dual bobbleheads, which are individually numbered to just 1,000, are only available in the National Bobblehead HOF and Museum’s Online Store.
The bobbleheads, which begin shipping next week, cost $75 each plus a flat rate shipping charge of $8 per order. They were produced exclusively for the National Bobblehead HOF by FOCO.
The rivalry bobblehead features Philadelphia Phillies mascot, the Phillie Phanatic, and New York Mets Mascot, Mr. Met, facing each other with their fists up. This is the first bobblehead commemorating the rivalry between the Phillies and Mets, who renew their rivalry with a three-game series at Citizens Bank Park this weekend. The NL East rivals have faced off 951 times since their first meeting in 1962, with the Phillies leading the regular season series 493-458. This is the only bobblehead commemorating the rivalry between the Mets and Phillies.
"This bobblehead is the perfect way for Mets and Phillies fans to commemorate a great rivalry between two storied franchises,” Phil Sklar, Co-Founder and CEO of the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum said. “These will be cherished collectibles that celebrate New York and Philadelphia’s rich baseball history and strong rivalry.”
The National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum is no stranger to Mets and Phillies bobbleheads, and has dozens of bobbleheads featuring the two teams including bobbleheads that were recently released to commemorate the World Series titles that the Phillies and Mets have won.
