Minnesota “Rowing the Boat” Goldy Gopher Bobblehead Unveiled
MILWAUKEE, Wi., February 24, 2017 – – Today, the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum unveiled a Limited Edition University of Minnesota Golden Gophers Bobblehead which features Goldy Gopher rowing a boat. The bobbleheads, which are now available for preorder, are only available in the National Bobblehead HOF and Museum’s Online Store for $40 each.
On January 6th, 2017, the University of Minnesota introduced P.J. Fleck as the new head coach of the Golden Gophers' football team, and Fleck is bringing his "Row the Boat" mantra to the Twin Cities. This past year, Fleck led the Western Michigan Broncos to an undefeated regular season and a 13-1 overall record including a spot in the Cotton Bowl.
"Minnesota is starting to row the boat, and we though this bobblehead would be a great way to symbolize that journey,” said Phil Sklar, Co-Founder and CEO of the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum. “Bobbleheads are a great way to show school spirit, and what better way for Golden Gophers fans to show their love of the Gophers than with this unique bobblehead of Goldy rowing the boat.”
The bobbleheads are officially licensed and will be individually numbered. They are expected to ship in July 2017.
