Brandon Phillips Bobblehead

DatDudeBP came to the Reds thanks to a trade with Cleveland in April 2006. Phillips was the third Red to join the 30-30 club (behind Eric Davis and Barry Larkin) and is the second second baseman to join the club (behind Alfonso Soriano). He's a two time all-star with three gold glove awards and a silver slugger award. Did I also mention that he hates the St. Louis Cardinals? The Phillips Bobblehead was given away at Great American Ballpark on August 15, 2009 in which the Reds were defeated by the Nationals 10-6. There were a total of 30,000 of these bobbleheads produced and, as mentioned in my previous two posts, was part of a collection of four that when put together showed a backdrop of Great American Ballpark. Phillips is by far one of my most favorite Reds players to watch in the field especially when he's able to accomplish impossible feats such as this. That's just mad skills!
