Miami Hurricanes Basketball Fight Song Bobbleheads Unveiled for National Bobblehead Day

This morning, to celebrate National Bobblehead Day, the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum unveiled a series of officially licensed Miami Hurricanes Basketball Fight Song Bobbleheads. The limited-edition bobbleheads are being released in conjunction with National Bobblehead Day, which is celebrated annually on January 7th. The Museum is celebrating starting today and going through Monday with dozens of new bobblehead releases including these new bobbleheads. The special edition bobbleheads were produced by the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum.

The bobbleheads, which just arrived and ship now, are now available at this link.

Miami Hurricanes Basketball Fight Song Bobbleheads in 4 Colors
  • Each bobblehead is individually numbered to only 2,023.
  • The bobbleheads are $40 each plus an $8 flat-rate shipping charge per order.
  • Available in black, green, orange, and white, the bobblehead features Sebastian the Ibis wearing a No. 6 basketball jersey with his signature sailor hat which reads “Hurricanes” in cursive letters. He is also forming a “U” with his hands. Each bobblehead plays the University of Miami Fight Song at the push of a button.
  • Folklore maintains that the Ibis is the last sign of wildlife to take shelter before a hurricane and the first to reappear after the storm. The local marsh bird was considered Miami’s first unofficial mascot when the school yearbook adopted the name “Ibis” in 1926. Its popularity grew among the students during the 1950s. In 1957, San Sebastian Hall, a residence hall on campus, sponsored an Ibis entry in the homecoming celebration. The next year, student John Stormont performed at games in an Ibis costume that was glued, sewn, and pinned together and was the forerunner of today’s bird. Through the years, Sebastian has become one of the most recognizable college mascots in the United States.

“We’re excited to be adding to our collection of Miami Hurricanes Bobbleheads with the new Sebastian Basketball Bobbleheads in conjunction with National Bobblehead Day,” National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum co-founder and CEO Phil Sklar said. “We know how passionate Miami Hurricanes fans are about their school and bobbleheads, so we expect these bobbleheads to be extremely popular.”

The officially licensed bobbleheads were produced by the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum.

The National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum, which is located at 170 S. 1st. St. in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, opened to the public on February 1st, 2019. The HOF and Museum also produces high quality, customized bobbleheads for retail sale as well as organizations, individuals, and teams across the country.
