Beginning on June 3, the second of the five-set series of Johnny Bench collectible bobbleheads will be available free with full-price paid admission to the Reds Hall of Fame and Museum on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays in June while supplies last. The second bobblehead in the series depicts Bench c. 1970 with his arm cocked, preparing to throw out a runner trying to steal second base. Only 5,000 of these bobbleheads have been produced.
The bobblehead series continues each month through September with a different classic pose that highlights iconic moments and images during his incomparable career. Launch dates for the remainder of the bobbleheads in the series will be announced soon.
Bobbleheads are only available on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays with full-priced paid admission to the Reds Hall of Fame and Museum while supplies last. There is a strict limit of one bobblehead per visitor per day.
