For all of the other events, 10,000 nodders were available. The most unique of the 39 promotions was the 40th Anniversary Celebration of the Twins' appearance in the 1965 World Series.
For that promotion on August 21, 2005, 1,000 Bobbleheads of ten different members of that team were distributed. This listing includes Bob Allison --- not quite Harmon, but not bad at all. This package also includes two extra Bobbleheads --- Al Newman (July 9, 2004) and Gary Gaetti (August 19, 2007) --- for a grand total of 41 pieces. However, they have resided in a dimly lit room with no exposure to the elements, including sunlight.
They look as brand new as they did when they were originally picked up at the Dome --- no wear whatsoever. Also included in this package are all 41 Certificates of Authenticity (aka "Authentic Commemorative Cards"), all of the original packaging, and, except for the Gaetti replacement, all of the ticket stubs. In other words, included in this listing for the August 19, 2007 Gary Gaetti Promotion, there are two Bobbleheads, two COA's, two boxes, but only one ticket stub. The individual boxes have been labeled using Post-It brand File Folder Labels, which means that they can be easily removed, leaving absolutely no adhesive residue or marks on the boxes.
