Keith Hernandez’s time in the big apple was one of incredible individual and team success, becoming one of his generation’s biggest icons. He took a perennial losing team all the way to the top of the baseball world, helping the Mets claim their second World Series Championship.
After being long overdue, the Captain of the 1986 World Series Champion Mets team is finally getting his numbered 17 retired.
During his time as a Met, Hernandez racked up 3 all-star game selections and finished 3 times in the top 10 of MVP voting.
An impressive 7-year run that continued from his tremendous success with the rival St. Louis Cardinals.
To go along with his offensive accomplishments, Hernandez won a whopping 11 gold gloves over the course of his 17-year career. To honor his jersey retirement ceremony, FOCO released a pair of Keith Hernandez bobbleheads, one of which to honor his 11 Gold Glove awards. You can find the officially licensed Keith Hernandez New York Mets 11x Gold Glove Bobblehead from FOCO here.

Limited to just 322 individually numbered units and standing at approximately 8 in. tall, the gold glove bobble will make a gilded addition to any true fan’s collection.
Of course, if you’re looking for a throwback touch of home-field advantage, FOCO has you covered there too, with the officially licensed Keith Hernandez New York Mets Shea Stadium Bobblehead.
