The Boys of Summer.
I have a vast collection of nodders/bobbing head baseball and football collectibles. I buy many of them completely destroyed and restore them to their original condition. I buy others just for the sheer joy of owning them.
I also restore for other collectors who want to fix up a piece they own. I will display just a few of some of the many I own, or have restored for others.
Some of these bobbing heads/nodders are worth thousands of dollars, others hundreds, but what they hold in memories to anyone who loves sports is priceless.
Those Boys of Summer And Fall.
I have restored many rare items in my work, LLadro, Royal Doulton and various other antiques in the toy and ceramic fields. I find great joy in bringing back a bit of history from the shards someone else left of them.
I hope you enjoy these pictures, and I also hope it takes some of you back to a simpler time, when souvenirs like these were a dollar and twenty-nine cents each. enjoy!!
