Here is a vintage 1962 Jockey Bobble Head Nodder with original box for your consideration.

I have seen some other vintage Jockey nodders but none came with the original box so this is a unique find.

I found this bobble head or nodder at an estate sale of a sports writer along with some other racing items.

The jockey on this bobble head is dressed in silks of red and purple colors.

He is holding onto his saddle in his arms perhaps waiting for the official weigh in to take place.

On his arm sleeve is the number 3 for his post position in the race.

He is smiling from ear to ear so perhaps he already won the big race of the day?

Of course on his head are the must have racing gear of goggles and cap for safety.

The bobble head stands about 6 1/2 inches tall.
The square base is 2 1/2 about inches across
All measurements are approximate.

On the bottom of the bobble head it is stamped (C) 1962 Japan

The box for this bobble head has a stamp on one side that reads JOCKEY -A MAROON JAPAN
There are paper labels on the outside of the box but the imprint there has faded to where to where it is not legible.

Nice vintage bobble head or nodder for a desk, the office, den, home or for the horse racing fan.

No bad smells or odors.

The box has some rips and tears to the cardboard.
The lid to the cardboard box is in fragile condition from being opened and closed. It is hanging on by a thread and could come off at any given point. I note this for accuracy.

I can't fully close the box top lid.
The box shows some storage wear, dust and scratches, creases and wrinkles.

The bobble head has some spots of paint loss or paint rub from age and storage.
There are some chips on the bottom and paint loss.

Please see all the pictures. Pardon the glare from camera flash. Coin is for scale and not part of listing.
