The National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum has unveiled an officially licensed, limited edition bobblehead commemorating the University of Miami’s five NCAA Division 1 Football National Championships.

The bobblehead features the Miami Hurricanes’ mascot, Sebastian the Ibis, surrounded by five championship rings on the base of the bobblehead, which is in the shape of Miami’s logo. A commemorative backing lists the years of Miami’s titles, which were in 1983, 1987, 1989, 1991, and 2001.

The limited edition bobbleheads, which are individually numbered to only 2,001 to coincide with the school’s last title year, became available for purchase on 8/23/19. The bobbleheads are $40 each with a flat rate shipping charge of $8 per order and just arrived. The bobbleheads are officially licensed and were produced by FOCO exclusively for the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum.

The Hurricanes are historically one of the nation’s most dominant teams in college football. Other than their five Division I championships, the Hurricanes are also tied for fourth on the list of all-time National Poll Championships by the Associated Press. As of 2018, Miami has the sixteenth highest win percentage in the NCAA and seven alumni players inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Recorded after the 2018 season, UM also had thirty-six players active in the NFL, which is the fourth-most players of any university in the nation.

This new bobblehead is one of seven to be included in an exclusive series of College Football Championship bobbleheads that the Hall of Fame and Museum is releasing leading up to the college football season. The other championship bobblehead released on 8/23/19 featured the Florida Gators, who took on the Miami Hurricanes in the opening game of the 2019 college football season in Orlando last Saturday.

The NCAA recognizes College Football National Champions dating back to 1869 when Princeton and Rutgers were both crowned National Champions. The release follows very popular bobbleheads commemorating teams that have won Basketball National Championships and World Series titles.

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