Miguel Cabrera bobblehead incorrectly refers to him as 'National League MVP'

The Detroit Tigers gave away 10,000 Miguel Cabrera bobbleheads on Friday night at Comerica Park, which we're sure made it a hot ticket. Unfortunately,  the bobblehead, which is supposed to feature Cabrera holding his back-to-back American League MVP awards from 2012 and 2013, is marred by one glaring typo.

Here are two examples, which would suggest the mistake appeared on all 10,000 bobbleheads given away. 

Yeah, that clearly says National League.

Not long after the error went viral, a representative from Forever Collectibles, which manufactured the bobbleheads, tweeted an apology.

Perhaps the confusion stemmed from Cabrera's five seasons (2003-2007) with the then Florida Marlins? In four of those seasons, Cabrera made the All-Star team, which confirms he was an impact player during his time there. Unfortunately, he never finished higher than fifth place in the NL MVP voting.

Then again, maybe Forever Collectibles just caught Google on a bad day

Here's a look at the complete bobblehead.

Well, hey, it will look nice on the shelf anyway. 

Unfortunately for Tigers fans, that was really just the beginning of a long night at Comerica Park on Friday. The on-field struggles of the hometown nine continued as well with a 7-2 loss to the Seattle Mariners, which allowed Seattle to pass them and take a half-game lead in the AL wild-card standings. That comes just five days after Detroit surrendered the AL Central lead to the Kansas City Royals, who by the way won again Friday extending their lead to a game and a half. 

A rough night for Forever Collectibles is quickly forgotten following those results.

Now the focus moves to Saturday night, where the first-ever Felix Hernandez vs. David Price matchup takes center stage in baseball. It's not a must-win scenario for either side, but a win for Detroit over the American League's most dominant pitcher may be exactly what they need to wash the taste of this week out of heir mouth.
