Trevor Hoffman/Ryan Klesko/Mark Kotsay/Phil Nevin Bobblehead Set (2002)

Hoffman/Klesko/Kotsay/Nevin Bobblehead Set

Carl’s Jr. sold these back in 2002 to promote obesity. Yes obesity. You had to go to Carl’s Jr. every Saturday for 5 consecutive weeks and purchase a combo meal to buy a different bobblehead for $4.99. That’s a lot of burgers and if you’ve seen a Carl’s Jr. commercial you know that they don’t serve normal burgers. Week 1 was Ryan Klesko (w/the stand), Week 2 was Mark Kotsay, Week 3 was the facsimile autographed ball by the entire 2002 Padres, Week 4 was Phil Nevin and Week 5 was Trevor Hoffman. It’s actually a pretty good likeness to all the guys (down to Klesko’s sideburns) although they are made out of a plastic as opposed to the normal heavy duty ceramic. Another downer is they are wearing the awful blue & white Dodger-esque uniforms that I hated with a passion.

  1. I was willing to acquire the extra weight to get my full set. As each player left the team, I turned the corresponding bobblehead around. After Trevor left, this is what it looked like:
    Adios Padres!
    (I also switched out the baseball)
