You Could Own A Christian Hackenberg Bobblehead

The State College Spikes are giving away Christian Hackenberg bobbleheads to the first 1,000 fans to enter the stadium for the game against the Staten Island Yankees on August 13. This could mark the beginning of a long line of Christian Hackenberg merchandise.

The giveaway will honor Christian Hackenberg as Penn State’s all-time leader in career passing yardage and touchdowns, according to the Spikes’ website. I assume he’ll wear a helmet, but can’t help but wonder if he’ll have a name on the back of his miniature jersey.

Hackenberg will also hopefully be rocking the blue and white despite his new gig as an NFL quarterback. You can ask him your life questions and force him to answer yes or no, use him as a paper weight, or create a shrine to what once was at your next tailgate, but there’s only one way to get your hands on one of these bad boys.

Tickets can be purchased for the 7:05 p.m. game for as little as $8. The giveaway is presented by The Nittany Lion Inn & The Penn State Conference Center Hotel and ESPN 1450.
