Kyrie Irving’s ‘Uncle Drew’ bobbleheads selling for over $500 on eBay
On March 4, the Cleveland Cavaliers held a promotion at Quicken Loans Arena where the team gave away 50 limited edition bobbleheads bearing the likeness of “Uncle Drew,” the curmudgeonly character who can ball with the best of them despite his advanced age who is portrayed by point guard sensation Kyrie Irving in the much ballyhooed commercials for Pepsi Max.
According to a Business Insider report, four of the 50 “Uncle Drew” bobbleheads have already been sold on eBay for at least $400, with one selling for a whopping $560 on March 10.
