With the MLB All-Star game set to be played on July 19th, FOCO has just released their annual Bobbles on Parade collection featuring a commemorative All-Star-themed bobblehead from all 30 MLB teams.
One of those teams, of course, is your Philadelphia Phillies.

The Bobbles on Parade program started back in 2003 in the city of Chicago. Major League Baseball, the Chicago White Sox, and Forever Collectibles partnered to create 34 life-sized bobbleheads to promote the All-Star Game, which was held at U. S. Cellular Field on July 15, 2003. From then on, FOCO (Forever Collectibles) has launched a collection each year themed around the All-Star Game. Still, it wasn’t until a few years ago they began offering these highly sought-out collectibles directly to collectors and fans alike.

Some of the past year’s iterations have been themed around the cities the All-Star Game has been played in. In 2009 the game was held in St. Louis, so FOCO created an “Arches on Parade” program to reflect the famous arches of St. Louis. Similarly, in 2014 Bobbles on Parade became “Peanuts on Parade” to honor the creator of the Peanuts comics, Charles Schulz, who grew up in Minneapolis, which is where the 2014 All-Star game was played. 2026 will mark the next time the Phillies will get to host the Summer classic, and you can be sure FOCO will create a unique collection for that year’s iteration!

This year’s Bobbles on Parade program is also themed around the city in which the All-Star Game will be played, Los Angeles.

Each of the 30 bobbleheads from every team stands atop a movie reel-themed base with a billboard of the 2022 All-Star game and palm trees behind them to play into the Hollywood theme of Los Angeles.

The Phillies version comes in a red, white, and blue colorway with multiple Phillies logos all across the body and head of the piece.

It has gold decals on the shin guard and wrist to match the golden movie reel the player stands atop. 

The bobblehead is officially licensed by Major League Baseball and the MLBPA and is limited to just 322 individually numbered units, stands at 8in tall, and will retail for $60.

Like all of FOCO’s bobbleheads, it’s handcrafted and hand painted, so no two are exactly the same.
