The 2018 Bobblehead Season Begins

Updated: Aug 27, 2018

On May 5, the #Oakland A’s began the 2018 bobblehead season by handing out over 10,000 free #BlackPanther #bobbleheads to fans.


Considering the success of the recent Marvel film Black Panther, and its strong ties to Oakland, the giveaway was highly anticipated with some of the longest bobblehead lines in Oakland A’s history.

Fans that arrived early (usual up to 6 hours before the gates opened) were gifted with the unique bobblehead that quickly showed up on Ebay-selling for over $50.




The game itself turned into a thrilling extra-inning pitching duel with the Oakland A’s winning on a walk off homerun by slugger Khris Davis.
