Dave Concepcion Bobblehead

The Concepcion bobbleheads were given out on August 9, 2006 when the Reds hosted the Cardinals. Reds fans were treated to another dramatic finish when David Ross belted a walk-off homerun off Jason Isringhausen in the bottom of the ninth for an 8-7 Reds victory. Now, back to Concepcion and the bobbleheads. There were 30,000 of these little yes men produced for distribution, and this bobblehead was one in a series of three "Power of Tradition" series showcasing the past and current shortstops for the Reds. The other two in the series were Barry Larkin and Felipe Lopez. As for Concepcion, he made his major league debut with the Reds on April 6, 1970. One of the "Great Eight" of the Reds Big Red Machine, Concepcion was a nine time All-Star, five time Gold-Glove Award winner, and a two time Silver-Slugger Award winner. Why he's not in the Baseball Hall of Fame.....beats me.
