First Saquon Barkley Penn State Bobblehead Unveiled

This morning, the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum unveiled the first bobblehead of Saquon Barkley in his Penn State Nittany Lions jersey. The officially licensed, limited edition bobblehead features Barkley on a football field base with his name and number on a plaque in the background.

The bobbleheads, which are individually numbered to only 2,018, are $40 each plus a flat rate shipping charge of $8 per order. The initial production run of bobbleheads are in stock now, and the remaining bobbleheads will be produced and made available for pre-order if the initial bobbleheads sell out. The officially licensed bobbleheads were produced exclusively for the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum by FOCO.

Saquon Barkley was an outstanding rusher and pass catcher for the Nittany Lions. In his three seasons, Barkley rushed for 3,843 yards, averaging 5.7 yards per carry while racking up 102 catches and 1,195 receiving yards. He scored 43 rushing touchdowns and eight passing touchdowns during his career with the Nittany Lions. Barkley earned several honors during his college career including 2016 and 2017 Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year and Consensus All-American in 2017. Barkley was selected by the New York Giants with the second overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. Barkley has gotten off to a great start in the NFL, making several big plays with the Giants. In six games, Barkley has rushed for 438 yards with four rushing touchdowns while catching 40 passes for 373 yards and two touchdowns. Barkley attended Whitehall High School in Whitehall Township, Pennsylvania, where he rushed for 3,646 yards with 63 touchdowns in three seasons.

“Saquon was an impact player and fan favorite at Penn State and is making an immediate impact in the NFL,” said Phil Sklar, Co-Founder and CEO of the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum. “This bobblehead is a must-have for any Penn State fan!”
