This listing is for a 1966 Chicago White Sox Boy Head Mascot bobbin head, also known as nodders. He has 2 small hairlines in the back of his head, on his hair, and other then that he looks nice.He'll display nicely as you have to really search to see the cracks and they're certainly not visible when on display. I guantee him to have never been restored, never been repainted and never been refurbished and is 100% original. Thank you again for watching and please make the DENVER SUPPLY one of your favorite vendors so you can readily and frequently drop by. Thank you again for your interest and your questions...................... One final thought, I guarantee and promise satisfaction with each and every item that w. This is a very expensive hobby but fun nonetheless. I have 14 nodders from when I was a child. Back then they were only a buck or two and my Mother would allow me to pick one out every time we went to the Ephrata Children's Boy Store for school clothing. They had an entire wall of them. How many times I've thought about those days. I would love to simply know now what all they had? I took painstaking care of these little guys even then. I even hid this fact from my friends for fear of them making fun of me for playing with dolls and I loved them then, just as much as I do today. I gently stuffed newspaper in their heads because even then, I was indeed smarter then the average bear, and he's actually quite intelligent, so they say. I did however, carefully write the number 43 on the back of one of my several Phillie bobbin heads. He is still lovingly known today as the "Wes Covington" edition, and he's quite limited, I'll have you know.
So each and everyone of these guys turned out negative on my black light test. They look beautiful, as advertised, but when subjected to your little black light test, BOOM, there it is. Without the aid of that black light, I couldn't tell which of my Black Faced Phillies had been restored. They are both beautiful, and shiney, and mint, and have vibrant colors.
But when the black light hits it, there are your spots of color that someone painted on. You may certainly fix them up, paint them up, cover up a nick, scratch, pin hole, whatever, to your own choosing and preference. Feel free to do whatever you like.
But the problem now lies, if and when you should decide to sell them. Because now you have an obligation to at least share this. Maybe half price after they've been restored? But if they had flaws to start with, that's about what they would've brought on the market anyway. I don't mind owning and displaying mint nodders in my personal collection that have been professionally restored.
Don't mind it one little bit. But it's far easier for me to sell the mint ones that have NEVER been restored. Yes they're very expensive, I don't deny that.
But what I have is MINT and I when I tell you that it's mint, you'll know that it is for sure. I'll also let you know when I'm listing one that's been restored or repainted. Regardless, get yourself a black light please, you'll be an expert in no time and you'll be glad that you did. I would never ever be without mine again. They even sell blacklight flashlights.
If you're a nodder collector, this is an absolute must for your own satisfaction as well as protection. It's simply too easy. I try to list several items each and everyday so please keep stopping by and checking in. I have hundreds and hundreds to sell. If there's something in particular that you're looking for, please write me and if I have it, we'll talk or I can list if for you.I have a ton to sell.
