“I love the bobblehead because it reminds me of the way I played. It really looks like me. I think it’s the best bobblehead ever made because it’s an action bobblehead.”
Milwaukee, Wisconsin (PRWEB) September 02, 2015
Today, the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum and Pete Rose unveiled a brand new, limited edition Pete Rose bobblehead, which features Pete making his signature head first slide. Only 1,000 of the bobbleheads have been produced, and each bobblehead is individually numbered.
According to Pete, “I love the bobblehead because it reminds me of the way I played. It really looks like me. I think it’s the best bobblehead ever made because it’s an action bobblehead.”
"As a baseball fan, it was an honor to create a bobblehead of one of the greatest players ever to play the game. We wanted to create a bobblehead that showcased Pete’s grit and determination, and the details in this bobblehead capture those characteristics that the one-and-only Charlie Hustle exhibited on the baseball field.” said Phil Sklar, Co-Founder and CEO of the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum. “Fans have convincingly indicated in online voting that Pete’s bobblehead should be the first inducted into the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum, and we’re looking forward to opening next year to showcase this bobblehead as well as thousands of others from all genres.”
"This will be a great keepsake for all of the Pete Rose and baseball fans out there, regardless of whether this is their first or tenth Pete Rose bobblehead,” said National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum Co-Founder and President, Brad Novak. “We were excited to have the opportunity to work with Pete to create a modern bobblehead featuring his iconic head-first slide.”
