Felipe Lopez Bobblehead

This was the first bobblehead the Reds gave out in the Power of Tradition series back in 2006. There were a total of three in the series with Larkin and Concepcion rounding out the other two. I felt bad for Lopez when he came to the Reds for the simple fact that he had big shoes to fill at shortstop with Larkin's retirement. Lopez had some decent numbers in 2005 and was selected to the All-Star game that year, but 2006 was a different story and by mid season he was dealt to the Nationals. This nodder was given out on May 24, 2006 when the Reds took on the Brewers. Unfortunately, fans in attendance of the game watched the Reds fall to the Brew Crew 6-2.I guess they all can't be winners can they.
