Major League Baseball has been producing bobbleheads since the 1960 World Series.  Now the Kansas City Royals, the 2014 American League champs, are ushering in a new era for collectors of bobblehead toys.  As reported on the team’s Twitter feed, instead of issuing typical MLB bobbleheads for fans who attend designated game days, they are changing up the bobblehead designs for the 2015 season.  The new figures reflect the personality of the groundbreaking team, which made it to the seventh game of the World Series against the San Francisco Giants last Fall.  Each of four figures will be released at games highlighting players Mike Moustakis, Salvador Perez, Lorenzo Cain, and Yordano Ventura.

The best of these adapts Mike Moustakis’s memorable dive into the stadium from the American League Championships:
