Tony Gwynn Babooshkah Russian Nesting Dolls (SGA 8/9/03)

Gwynn Russian Nesting Dolls

Ah yes the Russian Nesting Dolls. I remember hearing that “these are the new wave of the future, goodbye bobbleheads”. Yet after the flurry of Babooshkah giveaways in the 2003 & 2004 seasons, that saw the likes of George Brett, Mike Piazza, Barry Bonds, Ichiro & the very cool Oakland A’s one of Mark Mulder, Barry Zito, Tim Hudson & Ramon Hernandez, to name a few, there haven’t been any that I know of. I thought they were actually pretty cool though. The face actually looks like Tony (unlike some other promotions) and the different unis through the years are a nice touch. The game itself featured Ollie Perez striking out 11 batters and walking only 1 but still got the loss. Jaret Wright, Luther Hackman, Joe Roa, Mike Mathews & Scott Linebrink also pitched in this game. What significance does this have? None really I just thought it was funny that Wright, Hackman, Roa & Mathews all pitched in the same game for us. No wonder why this team lost 98 games that year. The Padres lost to the Reds 9-5. This has a COA of #29718 of 41000.

  1. The gwynn russian dolls need to go in opposite order according to size, because he definitely got bigger towards the end of his career… HAHA just an observation, cause I love T Gwynn!

    • HAHA I remember saying the same thing back when they were given away. The Giants got the Barry Bonds one right though. The biggest one was him in a Giants uni, the next size was a Pirates uni and the smallest was an Arizona State uni. Just like in his real roided out life.
