Oakland Athletics’ Josh Reddick bobblehead features the wrong jersey number

To commemorate a great catch Josh Reddick made in spring training a couple years ago, the Oakland A’s are giving away the bobblehead you see above.

As you have noticed, Reddick is wearing #22 for the bobblehead, which was not the number he wore when he made the catch. Reddick switched to #22 when Billy Butler arrived last season.

This is an odd occurrence since the bobblehead is supposed to commemorate a moment in the past but it is forced to adopt Reddick’s current jersey number. I have never seen a throwback bobblehead’s accureacy changed like this before.

But I give them props for the spinning factor.
