The Mystery of the Bobbleheads:
Can someone explain to me why people seem to be willing to pay several hundred dollars a piece for plastic dolls given away for free by a magazine? I am referring, of course, to the Supreme Court bobblehead dolls distrubuted by The Green Bag. I'm a subscriber to and a big fan of The Green Bag, and I can see why a lawyer might want to pay $20 or even $30 for a bobblehead doll of a famous judge. It's an amusing conversation piece, and that's worth twenty bucks. But why are people paying over $300 for these dolls? What am I missing?
