The National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum unveiled an officially licensed, limited edition bobblehead commemorating the Auburn Tigers’ two College Football National Championships on Wednesday morning. This is the first bobblehead to celebrate Auburn’s football national championships and it joins over a dozen bobbleheads in the series of NCAA College Football National Champions Bobbleheads. The bobbleheads were produced exclusively for the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum by FOCO, an official licensee and manufacturer of Auburn Tigers and NCAA merchandise.
The bobblehead features Auburn’s mascot, Aubie the Tiger, standing behind two championship rings on the base of the bobblehead. The backing lists the years of Auburn’s titles, which were in 1957 and 2010. The limited edition bobbleheads are individually numbered to only 2,010 to coincide with the school’s last title year. The bobbleheads, which just arrived and ship now, are $45 each plus a flat-rate shipping charge of $8 per order. They are only available through the Hall of Fame and Museum’s Online Store.
Since its first season in 1892, Auburn is recognized by the university and NCAA for winning two national championships, 16 conference titles and 10 division crowns. One of the inaugural members of the powerhouse Southeastern Conference, the Tigers have achieved 12 undefeated seasons and 44 bowl appearances in their history. One of the most successful college programs in the last 25 years, Auburn has won over 70 percent of its games during that span.
Auburn’s bobblehead joins Alabama, Clemson, Oklahoma, Penn State, Florida, LSU, Miami, Nebraska, Ohio State, Texas, Tennessee and USC in the series celebrating teams that have won multiple college football National Championships. 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,”said National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum co-foudner and CEO Phil Sklar. “We know how passionate Auburn fans are about their team and bobbleheads, so we expect these to be extremely popular especially since bobbleheads make sure a great holiday gift.”
