Watch: Ezekiel Elliott autographs gigantic Ezekiel Elliott bobblehead
A Dallas Cowboys fan brought along a rather sizable bobblehead of Ezekiel Elliott to training camp on Tuesday. And before day’ps end, he was lucky enough to get the real-life Elliott to autograph it.
Alex Hurtado, of San Diego, Calif., has been lugging the huge Elliott bobblehead to camp for days now. While his efforts at getting the Cowboys running back to sign the piece of memorabilia proved unsuccessful on previous efforts, Tuesday turned out to be Hurtado’s lucky day.

As noted in the above tweet, Hurtado shelled out a whopping $800 on eBay for the Elliott bobblehead. While that certainly is a lot of money, the fact that the Elliott bobblehead in Hurtado’s possession is only one of 12 produced make it somewhat more reasonable.
“It’s worth it now, you know what I mean,” Hurtado said, via Sportsday. “If I hadn’t gotten it signed, oh my gosh.”
A reporter asked Hurtado if he would take $5,000 for the bobblehead. Someone else joking chimed in with a bid of $15,000.
It merits noting that Hurtado is not a Cowboys bobblehead neophyte, either. In fact, the autographed Elliott bobblehead marks the third in Hurtado’s possession.
Third year in a row for this fan at training camp to bring a large Cowboys bobblehead. He brought Tony Romo two years ago, Dez Bryant last year and Ezekiel Elliott this year … Zeke coat him $800 on EBay: pic.twitter.com/oHhmoK6SsZ

It turns out Hurtado got Romo to sign his bobblehead a few years back, while it’s unclear whether or not Bryant inked the bobblehead version of himself. If not, it goes without saying odds are against Hurtado landing that coveted autograph at this point, for obvious reasons.
