Happy holidays. Wear a mask.
While many NBA fans may be unfamiliar with Yuta Tabuse, plenty of BSOTS readers will know the name. Tabuse is the first Japanese-born player to appear in an NBA game, and he did so for your Phoenix Suns.
Tabuse’s tenure in the league lasted just four games in 2004, but his career in professional basketball still continues today. The “Michael Jordan of Japan” is a point guard for Utsunomiya Brex of the B.League in his home country.
I can’t say how rare this bobblehead is, but you can’t think many exist. It’s pricey if you want to add it to your collection, at $1100 after shipping.
I don’t know fashion.
But this is fashion, in some circles. It’s the most creative commemoration of Devin Booker’s beautiful buzzer-beater in the bubble I’ve yet seen.
There is some rarity here. Well, I wasn’t able to easily find them online anyway. If you have an extra five-hundred dollar bill laying around it can be yours.
*NOTE: Found a couple closer to $400 up for bid.
These show up on eBay from time to time, but not nearly as often as you may think. I’ve seen a couple in the last five years. They’ve been posted on this site before.
The seller writes:
This is a unique and rare bobble head given out to people around 2003 when they donated blood to United Blood Services. I believe it is made of porcelain, or some other very solid material. Not cheap plastic.
NOT CHEAP PLASTIC. So maybe it’s worth the $35 being asked. Though the $307.85 to ship is a little rich. I’m guessing that’s a typo. Offers will be heard, throw out a number.
I thought this was a joke the first time I saw it.
I don’t understand jerseys. I think I said that a couple weeks ago, or a couple months ago. I don’t know. What’s time anyway?
A quick search reveals that this is in fact a jersey line produced by Mitchell & Ness featuring both legendary players and the athletes of today.
This is bleached. It’s a bleached jersey. We’re at the point where we are selling bleached jerseys. This is absurd. They are laughing at you,
Two-hundred bucks, but you could probably make the same thing at home for a twenty-dollar bill.
Vintage t-shirts go for big money these days. I don’t know anyone who would pay asking price for the above offering, but it’s neat to see nonetheless.
These Salem Sportswear shirts were made for any number of players, and one emblazoned with cartoon imagery of Richard Dumas has to fall on the rarer-end.
Dumas falls into the ‘what if?’ category that has felled too many players. After a spectacular rookie season with the Suns in 1993, he eventually found his career derailed by addiction.
Dumas could throw it down. Do yourself a favor and check out some of his highlights sometime. This shirt can be yours for $115 after shipping.
