World Series



This listing is for the Pablo Sandoval Gnome above.

This custom Sandoval Gnome celebrates the unique SF Giants Panda as the 2012 World Series MVP. This is "NOT" the SGA Pablo Sandoval gnome the Giants gave away on September 22nd to the first 20,000 fans. It is a better quality collectible gnome which costs twice as much to make as common promotional gnomes. It is a much better design with the unique panda gnome hat and brighter colors.

Hand Carving Gnome Prototype

The Pablo Sandoval Gnome creation begins with an artistic concept showing the four sides of the Venezuelan Panda. The craftsman is guided by a computer image as he hand carves the figurine out of special clay. The prototype is created and used to make the molds for the production gnomes. All the panda gnomes are hand painted with great care.

Hand Painting Gnome

The majority of Giants’ fans I speak with don’t know the origin of the Panda’s name. Let me share the official story:

“The Panda" nickname was bestowed on Pablo Sandoval at Dodger Stadium on Sept. 19, 2008 during his rookie season.  The stage was set in the top of the 5th inning as the Giants were visiting their archrival. Pablo was standing on second base and Randy Winn on third as Bengie Molina dropped a single into center field. Matt Kemp fielded the ball and made a throw to home plate. Winn scored first and then Sandoval as he leaped sideways to avoid the lunging tag of Dodger backup catcher Danny Ardoin. Barry Zito shouted from the dugout "Kung Fu Panda!" at the instant of the acrobatic feat. Greg Maddux and manager Joe Torre rushed to the plate to argue with umpire Alfonso Marquez that the rookie ran out of the baseline. But the call stood to the jeers of the Dodger faithful.

The panda name stuck with Giants’ fans due in part to Pablo's striking resemblance to the DreamWorks character Po from the Kung Fu Panda movie. The Giants beat the Dodgers 7 to 1 behind the masterful pitching of Barry Zito and thanks to his outburst a new superhero was born.

Pablo design above created by Mouth Man Inc. the creators of animated shirts.

Historically gnomes originate in 19th century Germany, where they became known as Gartenzwerg (literally "garden dwarf"). They were placed in gardens to protect from evil sorcery. (Source - Wikipedia)

It is highly recommended that you locate your Sandoval Gnome in your garden or yard to ward off evil LA Dodger sorcery (especially now since they are under new ownership). Include a Brian Wilson Gnome and some other Giants' bobbleheads to form a balanced defensive and offensive perimeter. Buy an extra gnome for inside your house or to place on your desk at the office. Maybe it will ward off evil boss sorcery. Don't forget one for your boat or car. They also make a great present for that special Giants fan in your life.
