When it comes to Toronto Blue Jays sports memorabilia, fans take it very seriously. A quite popular collectible memorabilia that fans crave is sports bobbleheads. Their uses are multi-purposeful as they’re great for home decor on a desk, shelf, or for a sports memorabilia room and they also make great gifts for sports fans.
The great thing about bobbleheads too is that over time they sustain more value and become worth more money depending on the ones you’ve collected. There are so many out there in different variations from select years and while the vintage ones are popular they are constantly coming out with new ones. So, why don’t we take a look at some of the best Blue Jays bobbleheads? Maybe you might be adding one of these to your collection.
Some of the Greatest Blue Jays Bobbleheads
Bautista Bat Flip Bobblehead 2023
Although Jose Bautista no longer plays for the Jays he is highly commemorated as a favourite player who spent 10 seasons with the team. In addition, he helped the Blue Jays get into the postseason and his epic bat flip is something that will never be forgotten. For this reason, on March 5th, it was announced that he will be added to the Blue Jays Level of Excellence before the Chicago Cubs game on August 12th, 2023.
The first 15,000 fans will get the opportunity to receive a commemorated Bautista Bat Flip Bobblehead. According to the MLB website, “The Level of Excellence is an award bestowed by the Toronto Blue Jays Baseball Club, recognizing tremendous individual achievement.”
Romano & Jansen Handshake Bobblehead 2023

The Jordan Romano and Danny Jansen Handshake bobbleheads were given away at the April 24th game of this year against the Chicago White Sox, to the first 15,000 fans. It’s been said that the catcher controls what happens in the game. So, when it comes to the pitcher and the catcher in the game, the dual relationship is so significant in a game. It is common for pitchers to shake hands with their catcher when they’ve won a game to represent a job well done.
But, Jansen and Romano aren’t just teammates they are also good friends. Did you know that they spent a lot of time together in the minor leagues? Their time spent in the minor leagues and then making their way to the big leagues in Toronto represents the development of both their careers and their friendship. At the end of the day, it makes perfect sense why they paired Jansen and Romano together in a bobblehead.

May Roy Halladay RIP as it is unfortunate that he passed away at the age of 40 in a plane crash back on November 7th, 2020. Luckily, Roy Halladay is a player that will never be forgotten for his stellar pitching. In 2003 he won the AL Cy Young Award and a bobblehead was commemorated to mark his achievement. This bobblehead without question contains value to it. If you search online you will find that many of them contain a stub ticket from the May 16th, 2004 Boston Red Sox vs. Toronto Blue Jays game.

There are many Vladimir Guerrero Jr. bobbleheads but this one specifically is significant as it represents generations of Gurrero baseball players. Evidently, Vladdy is called junior for a reason. His father spent 16 seasons in the major leagues and as you can see from the bobblehead that one of the teams he played for was the Montreal Expos.
Vladdy taking after his father’s (Guerrero Sr.) footsteps in baseball represents a dynamic duo of greatness in baseball. The Vlad and Dad Bobblehead giveaway occurred on July 2nd, 2022 where Guerrero Sr. threw the first pitch before the game to his son.
Did Someone say Bobblehead?
There’s more to bobbleheads than meets the eye. Bobbleheads are a great keepsake as they commemorate history in sports. It is nice to look back on the success of players and their achievements. Many collect them, sell them and even give them as gifts. They’ve turned into a trendy item that also resembles and is similar to Pop Funko Figures. There are many sports-related ones including MLB.
