FIRST LOOK: 'The Tiger' doing pushups limited bobblehead
|Wednesday, June 19, 2019, 12:13 PM- -|
The National Bobblehead Hall of Fame will announce shortly a new officially licensed, limited-edition Clemson Tigers Football Bobblehead, manufactured by FOCO, which is now available for order. Tigernet will get the first chance to order the item.
This bobblehead features The Tiger, mascot of the Clemson Tigers, doing a push-up. In 1978, mascot Zach Mills began the tradition of doing push-ups every time Clemson scored with the number of push-ups equaling the point total. The tradition has since been copied by many other schools but it originated at Clemson. It was produced exclusively for the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum and is officially licensed by Clemson University and the NCAA.
Other bobbleheads to consider ordering:
The first bobblehead features The Tiger with his leg on top of a miniature Clemson football helmet while holding up the #1 sign and commemorates the team’s undefeated season. Included behind the mascot is a team logo backdrop with the schedule and scores from Clemson’s undefeated season on the reverse side. The base is adorned with a 3D championship logo and “15-0 CLEMSON FOOTBALL - BEST IS THE STANDARD” logo on the top of the base.
The next two bobbleheads feature Clemson football coach, Dabo Swinney. The first features Swinney posing on a replica stadium base next to a replica national championship trophy, celebrating the team’s two National Championships under Swinney’s leadership.
The second is a dual bobblehead featuring Dabo high fiving Clemson’s mascot, The Tiger, after the team’s third National championship. The bobblehead features Swinney and The Tiger sharing a victorious high five while standing atop a hand painted, grass textured base that sports two replica national championship trophies.
The limited edition, handcrafted bobbleheads, which are being produced by FOCO, are expected to ship in August 2019. The mascot bobblehead is $45, the Dabo bobblehead is $55 and the dual bobblehead is $70, and shipping is a flat rate of $8 per order.
