Kicking off our collector series blog post we have Twitter follower @DosDosHyams, aka Glenn Hyams sending in photos of his extensive New York Islanders (and Mets/Orioles) bobblehead collection.
Glenn's collection blends both new and old school bobbles and other stadium giveaways. The bottom shelf celebrates the 1980's New York Islanders championship leaders with lockers including Potvin, Gillies, Bossy and Trottier. He's also got the Rick "Humpty" DiPietro mini bobble - one of our personal favorites. DP, now a host with Alan Hahn on 98.7 ESPN had his hockey career shortened due to injury - its nice to see he's still a favorite with the Isles.
Up on the top shelf, Peca and Yashin stand proud, with the later bobbles of Boychuk in the new black jersey, Tavares, Okposo and Matt Martin rounding out the collection.
When asked about his collecting preferences - Glenn told us:
"Well, I'm a huge isles fan so I try to get all isles related bobbles but I go to school in Baltimore so whenever there's a giveaway at an O's game then I do my best to get there. The Troy Brouwer bobblehead was actually when the caps played the isles a few years ago."
Glenn clearly bleeds Islanders orange and blue (the black jersey still doesn't count) - and we're impressed with his collection. Keep up the hobby and stay in touch! FYI - we do sell Islanders, Orioles and Mets bobbleheads. Stay tuned for product listings as MLB promotional schedules are listed
