The Brewers are certainly bobblehead happy in 2014. The Spring Training schedule sees 8 bobblehead nights featuring what’s likely leftovers from previous seasons (Ryan Braun on March 27th may be the highlight) while the 2014 regular season sees another 8 bobblehead giveaways at Miller Park ranging from current Brews to legends to Milwaukee icons.
According to TiqIQ, the average asking price per ticket on the secondary market for the Brewers bobblehead series is $96; 25% above the regular home average of $77. Below they’ll break down each game’s giveaway and ticket prices.

Carlos Gomez Gold Glove Bobblehead
Average ticket price: $62, Get-in price: $17
The Brewers pay tribute to their center fielder with Carlos Gomez bobblehead night on April 27th. The special edition highlights Gomez’s 2013 Gold Glove season, the first Brewer to take home the award since Robin Yount in 1982.

Kyle Lohse Bobblehead
Average ticket price: $132, Get-in price: $26
Lohse was the Brewers most reliable starter in 2013 and the Brews will honor him with Kyle Lohse bobblehead night on May 11th. At an average ticket price of $132, it’s by far the most expensive game on the list, but it’s more so that the game takes place during Derek Jeter’s farewell tour than demand for the bobblehead.
- 6/15 vs Cincinnati Reds
Average ticket price: $77, Get-in price: $20
The Brewers will pay tribute to their old school logo at the June 15th matinee vs Cincy. While Brewers tickets for vintage bobblehead don’t exactly carry a vintage price tag, it is the second cheapest game on this list.
- 6/29 vs Colorado Rockies
Scooter Gennett Bobblehead
Average ticket price: $78, Get-in price: $20
Gennett’s the youngest player to be christened with a bobblehead this season. He was recalled from the Nashville Sounds last year at the age of 23 and performed well with a .324 batting average for the remainder the season.
- 7/27 vs New York Mets
Jim Henderson Bobblehead
Average ticket price: $78, Get-in price: $21
The Canadian born Jim Henderson is the second member of the pitching staff to earn a bobblehead night. Henderson was a member of the Canadian national team at the Pan American games in 2011. He earned a gold medal and the team was elected to the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame.

Jean Segura Bobblehead
Average ticket price: $82, Get-in price: $20

Robin Yount Bobblehead
Average ticket price: $89, Get-in price: $21
The final bobblehead night of the season honors the legendary Robin Yount. The 2-time AL MVP and Gold Glove winner spent all 20 seasons of his MLB career with the Brewers and was a first ballot hall of famer elected in 1999. Yount is the Brewers all time leader in hits and home runs and has his number 19 retired by the franchise. This is the 2nd most expensive game on the list and fans are hopefully it’ll have playoff implications.
