It's debatable what was the greater novelty on April 5 , the 3,000 free Elvis bobblehead dolls given away or a Grizzlies win. Regardless, several fans rushed to cash in via the Internet. The dolls were sighted within hours on eBay, where auctioneers have already begun hawking the dolls for over $100. About 3,000 fans picked up dolls at the game, including one studded with $2,200 worth of diamonds, which hasn't shown up on the auction site. That's not to be confused with the Elvis Grbac doll going for $0.30.
As bobbleheads and Elvis memorabilia go, the April 5 giveaways gave eBay some of its most expensive representatives from either category, of which eBay has thousands on any given day. Bobblehead dolls commemorating the retirement of Cal Ripken Jr. are going for $135, compared to a doll for President George W. Bush that's up for $5.50. An original 1964 Car Mascot bobblehead of John Lennon? $170. A quick search of Elvis memorabilia turned up only one item going for more than the bobbleheads: Cigar box purses going for $259.
