JuJu Smith-Schuster “JuJu’s Sweet Ride” Bike Bobblehead Unveiled
Limited Edition bobblehead featuring JuJu Smith-Schuster on a bike is now available for pre-order exclusively from the National Bobblehead HOF and Museum.
MILWAUKEE, Wi., March 8, 2018 – This morning, the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum unveiled a limited-edition bobblehead featuring JuJu Smith-Schuster riding his bike. On Tuesday, October 24th, 2018, JuJu Smith-Schuster posted a video of him walking to practice on social media and explaining that someone had stolen his bike. Word quickly spread, and within 24 hours, his bike was returned, which was a good thing because JuJu didn't even have a driver’s license! This is the first bobblehead of JuJu Smith-Schuster.
The limited edition bobbleheads, which are individually numbered to only 1,000, are in production and are expected to ship in May. The bobbleheads are $40 each with a flat rate shipping charge of $8 per order.
JuJu was selected by the Pittsburgh Steelers in the second round of the 2017 NFL Draft with the 62nd overall pick. When Schuster made his NFL debut, he was the youngest player in the NFL. He finished his stellar rookie season with 58 receptions for 917 yards and seven touchdowns, leading all rookies in yards and touchdowns.
During his three-year career at the University of Southern California (USC), Smith-Schuster tallied 3,092 receiving yards and 25 touchdowns. Prior to his college football career with USC, he played wide receiver and safety at Long Beach Polytechnic High School in Long Beach, California.
"When we saw the story about JuJu and his bike, we thought it would be the perfect opportunity for a fun bobblehead,” said Phil Sklar, Co-Founder and CEO of the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum. “We think it turned out great, and we’re confident JuJu and Steelers fans everywhere will agree. We’re looking forward to getting one to DJ too if we can track him down.”
The bobbleheads were produced exclusively for the National Bobblehead HOF and Museum by FOCO and are officially licensed.
