DETROIT -- A Miguel Cabrera bobblehead giveaway Friday honoring his back-to-back Most Valuable Player awards took on an unintended collectible status when the bobblehead depicted Cabrera holding two National League MVP awards.

Cabrera has won the last two American League MVP honors.

The Tigers released a statement from the manufacturer, Forever Collectibles:

"Forever Collectibles takes full responsibility for this error and we apologize to the fans. We are certainly disappointed this happened."

The bobbleheads were a giveaway item for the first 10,000 fans through the gates at Friday's 7-2 Tigers loss to the Mariners.
