The Braves hit home with the OutKast bobblehead night

The Braves seemed to have a big hit with their OutKast bobblehead Thursday night.

The team gave bobbleheads featuring Atlanta hip-hop duo Big Boi and Andre 3,000 to the first 15,000 fans to enter the gates for the game against the Phillies. Long before the gates opened, fans at The Battery Atlanta were lining up to get in and make sure they were among the lucky ones. Some on social media have likened the streaks to those around the 2021 World Series and the promotion of the replica ring the following year.

With 43,216 attendance announced for the game, there were 28,216 unlucky attendees. Perhaps the brave will think of another such gift.

While many fans were elated to get their hands on the doll’s head and plan to keep it, others weren’t. A search on eBay Friday listed bobbleheads for up to $350. For those who got Big Boi to sign a bobblehead, well, the price goes up to $900. Typical bobbleheads can cost around $100 on resale sites.

Big Boi ran a mission in the broadcast booth, and announcers Brandon Gaudin and Jeff Francoeur noticed that many friends and family reached out trying to secure a bobblehead for them. There is no such luck. Big Boi might also consider a career in broadcasting, you know, if that music thing doesn’t work out. Clips from his time in the booth made ESPN’s SportsCenter.

Big Boy threw from the first pitch. Andre 3000 was not present at the match.
