Troy Tulowitzki: Bobbleheads and Collectibles Market

troy tulowitzki: That changed around 2015, according to CTV. The Jays shot up in the standings, bolstered by newcomers Josh Donaldson and Troy Tulowitzki, who came with bobbleheads that attracted droves of collectors. The Toronto Blue Jays, whose bobbleheads he coveted most, Wlodarski says were just horrid and their merchandise were hardly desirable. The shift taught Wlodarski -- the owner of about 650 bobbleheads at his collecting peak, who insists his love of the figurines is about passion not profit -- plenty about how to master the collectibles market. They say maximizing what can be made or nabbing an item for as little as possible can be tough because it takes a mix of timing and luck. The market can be fraught with high price tags and even higher emotions, but experts say there are tens of thousands of dollars to be to made, if you're willing to part with high-value items like baseball cards, comics, coins, stamps and vintage film posters.
