All you need to do is mention his first name, and people the world over know exactly who you’re talking about. There are thousands of imitators, but only one original. He’s Elvis Presley- a true American icon. Now, the King of Rock 'n' Roll is coming back for one night only.
On Friday, April 5, 3,000 lucky fans will win their very own King of Rock and Roll to take home. At the game against the Houston Rockets, the Memphis Grizzlies will hold a draw where 3,000 lucky fans will win the first-ever Elvis Presley Bobblehead. The only way to get one of these one-of-a-kind bobbleheads is to attend the game.
Bobbleheads, the ceramic dolls whose oversized heads sit on a spring that allow them to bob and weave back and forth, aren't new. They have been around in one form or another since the 1950s. However, the craze was created and the trend was reborn when Major League Baseball’s San Francisco Giants used Willie Mays bobbleheads as a fan giveaway in 1999. Other sports then followed suit, including the NBA. At six selected games this season, the Memphis Grizzlies gave away bobblehead dolls bearing the likeness of various Grizzlies players to the first 4,000 fans 14 and under, and the dolls became wildly popular. The players included in the bobblehead series were Lorenzen Wright, Stromile Swift, Jason Williams, Shane Battier, Pau Gasol, and Michael Dickerson. Bobbleheads are limited in number, and once they're given away, they're gone.
