The Mets and Marvel Entertainment have teamed up to bring fans a Noah Syndergaard-Thor bobblehead this season.
Get your tickets now fellow Mets fans, and make sure you get to the ballpark early on Saturday, July 22. As someone who always fails to get these bobbleheads even though in my mind I’m getting to the ballpark extremely early, I wish you all of the luck as I’m sure these bobbleheads will be a hot commodity.
The gates open at 5:10 PM so the first fans will start lining up at like what, 10 AM? Maybe 9 AM?
This partnership between the Mets and Marvel is the first of its kind. Does this mean we’ll see more promos like this happen in the future? Maybe Matt Harvey in a batmobile? (Hey Mets, I want credit for that one if it actually happens.)
As we know, Syndergaard is quite the Thor fan. He had the following to say about this giveaway:
"“It was pretty awesome when I saw myself as a Thor bobblehead for the first time. I’m thrilled that many of our fans will be able to take this home and extremely honored that Marvel decided to work with us on this project.”"
I’m quite curious to see what these look like. It has Syndergaard’s stamp of approval, so they must look good.
The bobblehead will go to the first 15,000 fans in attendance. Knowing my luck I will be fan number 15,001 and miss it. Just like how I don’t have a Syndergaard garden gnome. Or a Jacob deGrom one. Or a Harvey bobblehead. (Do you see a trend here?)
Anyways, this giveaway is really cool. We already know Syndergaard has embraced his nickname, so it’s great to see the Mets teaming up with Marvel to further embrace it as well.
Oh, and July 22nd is also a fireworks night. So for fans headed to the game, it’ll be quite the long day at Citi Field. Hopefully the Mets beat Oakland so everyone can go home happy, whether they have a bobblehead or not (me).
