National Bobblehead Hall Of Fame & Museum Unveils New Penn State Figurine

The National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum has unveiled a new limited-edition figurine celebrating two of Penn State football’s greatest achievements.

The new bobblehead commemorates the Nittany Lions’ 1982 and 1986 national championships. Each figure costs $45 plus an $8 flat-rate shipping fee. They’re uniquely numbered one to 1,986, the year of the team’s last title win.

The limited-edition item features the Nittany Lion itself standing behind its two championship rings while atop the Penn State logo. The bobblehead is manufactured by FOCO, a leading manufacturer of sports and entertainment merchandise.

“The championship bobbleheads are the ultimate way for fans to show off their school pride,” National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum co-founder and CEO Phil Sklar said. “We know how passionate Penn State fans are about their team and bobbleheads, so we expect these to be extremely popular.”

The figurine’s release coincides with a number of similar bobbleheads celebrating other universities, including Auburn, Clemson, Oklahoma, and Tennessee.

Although Penn State’s first batch of bobbleheads has already sold out, more are currently in production. The Penn State figurines can be ordered online and are expected to ship in November.
