Bobblehead Memorializes Pro Hockey Scout Garnet “Ace” Bailey
Nodding-head figurines, or bobbleheads, have been a promotional mainstay of major league sports for decades. Typically, they reference teams and individual players beloved by loyal fans. This variant embodies the lion mascot adopted by the Los Angeles Kings ice hockey team in 2007. It also doubles as a tribute to the lion’s human namesake, Garnet Edward “Ace” Bailey, director of pro-scouting for the team, who was killed on 9/11.
