National Bobblehead Hall of Fame unveils UT commemorative bobblehead

 

The National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum has unveiled an officially licensed, limited edition bobblehead commemorating Tennessee’s six NCAA Division I Football National Championships. The bobblehead features the Volunteers’ mascot, Smokey, surrounded by six championship rings on the base of the bobblehead, which has the University of Tennessee logo. The backing lists the years of Tennessee’s titles, which were in 1938, 1940, 1950, 1951, 1967 and 1998. The bobbleheads are being produced exclusively for the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum by FOCO, an official licensee and manufacturer of Tennessee Volunteers and NCAA merchandise.

The limited-edition bobbleheads are individually numbered to only 1,998 to coincide with the school’s last title year. The bobbleheads are $45 each with a flat-rate shipping charge of $8 per order. They are only available through the Hall of Fame and Museum’s Online Store and are expected to ship in November.

Since its first season in 1891, Tennessee has won six national championships and 16 conference titles. The Volunteers currently rank third in bowl appearances (52) and sixth in bowl victories (28). Most notably, they have won four Sugar Bowls, three Cotton Bowls, and one Orange Bowl, Peach Bowl and Fiesta Bowl. Tennessee has won 464 games at Neyland Stadium – the highest home-field total in college football history for any school at its current home venue.

This new bobblehead is one of five in the latest batch to be included in an exclusive series of College Football Championship bobbleheads. The other new bobbleheads in the series are Auburn, Clemson, Oklahoma and Penn State. Previously released were Florida, LSU, Miami, Nebraska, Ohio State, Texas and USC. The NCAA recognizes College Football National Champions dating back to 1869 when Princeton and Rutgers were both crowned National Champions.

“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 Vols’ fans are about their team and bobbleheads, so we expect these to be extremely popular.”
