All you need is about $10 to get a bobblehead of your favorite athlete or celebrity, but there are some bobbleheads that are a little harder to get.
George Mason University law professor Ross Davies has been creating bobbleheads of Supreme Court justices over the last 10 years. These rare items can be redeemed by those who have a certificate which they get when subscribing to Green Bag, a legal journal that Davies runs. However, these certificates only guarantee that the holder “might be able” to get a Supreme Justice figure.
Some bobbleheads are handed out to law school public interest groups and a few of them can be found on eBay for hundreds of dollars. There are 16 of these figurines out there and they represent 16 different justices including four of the court’s current nine members.
