The 2016 MLB bobblehead stadium giveaway schedule is filled with current stars, tributes to Hall of Famers, mascots, Star Wars mash-ups and even an infamous rescue. But they’re not the only promotions of note for collectors. Teams are also handing out things like replica rings, statues, pins and other novelties.

The gnome continues to rise as well. The Mets couldn’t resist the obvious Noah Syndergaard-en Gnome. Even though it doesn’t have the catchy name to go with it, Oakland’s Sean Doolittle gnome is likely to garner more attention thanks to his Metallica shirt and rock-friendly hand gesture.

The majority of 2016 MLB bobbleheads being handed out at games are of your standard variety. Some teams have themes, like Kansas City’s postseason run and Miami’s All-Stars from the past. The Atlanta Braves have one of the more original bobbleheads of the year with one highlighting Chipper Jones’ rescue of a stranded Freddie Freeman, complete with an ATV.

With many teams now doing Star Wars nights, several promotional items are coming from them. The Reds have two different Star Wars bobbleheads in 2016 including one of their mascot, Mr. Redlegs, flying an X-Wing. The Red Sox have a BB-8 baseball for those buying a special ticket for their Star Wars promotion.

Topps has promotions with every MLB team this season, giving away special over-sized cards throughout June and July.

We’ve gone through all the promotional calendars and put together a list of all the 2016 MLB bobblehead stadium giveaways as well as other collector-friendly giveaways you might want to keep a look out for in the months ahead.
