Jose Reyes vs. Jose Reyes bobblehead

On Wednesday night, the Marlins will give away thousands of Jose Reyes bobbleheads. That's pedestrian enough in this, the Age of Bobblehead. Yet, although the bobblehead has evolved beyond its creepy "kewpie doll" past, you still occasionally run across a dubious rendering. To hear Reyes tell it, his bobblehead has missed the essence of the man. Joe Capozzi of the Palm Beach Post relays the following exchange:

"It doesn’t look like me," he (Reyes) said.

"Not at all. Except for the beard."

He reached into his locker and pulled out one of the bobblehead dolls and said: "I mean, what do you think?"

I told him I thought it looked sort of like him, but a lot more like Fernando Vina.

As with all things of importance, you, Eye on Baseball reader, are both judge and jury. Can you tell which one is the real Jose Reyes?
