Bartolo Colon Bobble Stomach

By Ryan Cracknell | Hobby Editor

It’s officially getting weird. First, Bartolo Colon hit a home run. Then Topps sold almost 9,000 cards commemorating it. Now Forever Collectibles is making a Bartolo Colon bobblehead. But it’s not only his head that bobbles. His stomach does too.

The Bartolo Colon bobble stomach has a sculpt of the pitcher making his swing. The tentative design of the figure has him standing on top of a newspaper with a home run-hitting headline and a backdrop of the big apple from Citi Field.

Limited to 942 copies, Clark Toys has it on pre-sale for $39.99. The bobblehead is currently slated for a fall release.

    This is cool but the paper is wrong. He is the oldest to hit his 1st hr but he is not the oldest to hit a hr.

    Brian – it’s off even more than that. The way the wording is in the picture above, it would mean Colon is the oldest pitcher in history. Tha’s definitely not the case – Satchel Paige was 17 years older than Colon when he last pitched, and Jamie Moyer was 7 years older as recently as 4 years ago.

      This is a mock-up. I’m sure that the final figure will be worded appropriately.
