The Reds Hall of Fame & Museum's collectible bobblehead program expands in 2017 to feature six Reds Hall of Famers, presented by Dinsmore & Shohl LLP. 
The first bobblehead in the series features Reds Hall of Famer Leo Cardenas, Hall of Fame Class of 1981. Nicknamed "Mr. Automatic" for his defensive reliability, the Cuban-native served as the Reds shortstop from 1962 through 1968. He led National League shortstops in fielding percentage twice and won a Gold Glove in 1965. Five career All-Star appearances, including four for the Reds, rounded out a Reds Hall of Fame-worthy career. This is Cardenas' first depiction as a bobblehead.  
The bobbleheads are free with regular-price admission to the Reds Hall of Fame & Museum (or a Scotts Great American Ball Park tour) beginning Saturday, April 1 at 10 a.m. and will be available Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays throughout the month of April, while supplies last.
Only 6,000 bobbleheads have been produced and there is a limit of one bobblehead per visitor per day.
The bobblehead series continues through September with a different Reds Hall of Famer available each month:
• April: Leo Cardenas 
• May: Tommy Helms  
• June: Pete Rose 
• July: Ron Oester  
• August: Dave Parker 
• September: George Foster 
Admission to the Reds Hall of Fame & Museum is $10 for adults, $8 for students/seniors and $6 for active military/veterans. Children ages four and younger are free.
The best way to ensure a bobblehead is to join the museum as a member. To become a member, please visit redsmuseum.org or call (513) 765-7923.
