What happened to all the MLB Bobbleheads from 2020?
The Mets gave out the deGrom and Alonso bobble heads to planholders but what happened to all the other MLB team Bobbleheads.
When the sports world came to a pause last spring, Jay Deutsch, the CEO of Bensussen Deutsch & Associates (better known as BDA), said his company, which produces the majority of promotional bobbleheads for MLB teams, needed to pivot from distribution to storage. He estimates that about four million bobbleheads planned for giveaways last year are currently sitting in warehouses.
Teams plan promotions months in advance because of the production schedule required. Deutsch said BDA produced items scheduled through May 2020 (plus some for further out, including Williams' stormtrooper bobblehead) before the pandemic.
