Minnesota Twins and Milwaukee Brewers Rivalry Bobblehead Unveiled
Limited Edition bobblehead commemorating the border rivalry between the Minnesota Twins and Milwaukee Brewers is now available for purchase from the National Bobblehead HOF.
MILWAUKEE, Wi., May 18, 2018 – – Today, the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum unveiled an officially licensed, limited edition bobblehead commemorating the rivalry between the Minnesota Twins and Milwaukee Brewers. The dual bobbleheads, which are individually numbered to just 1,000, are only available in the National Bobblehead HOF and Museum’s Online Store.
The bobbleheads, which just arrived and ship now, cost $75 each plus a flat rate shipping charge of $8 per order. They were produced exclusively for the National Bobblehead HOF by FOCO.
The rivalry bobblehead features Twins’ mascot, T.C. Bear, and Brewers’ mascot, Bernie, facing each other with their fists up. This is the first bobblehead commemorating the border rivalry between the Twins and Brewers, who face off for the first time this season beginning tonight with a three-game series at Target Field in Minneapolis. The two teams will face off in Milwaukee in a three-game series at Miller Park July 2nd through July 4th.
The Brewers and Twins have faced off each year since 1969, with the Twins holding an all-time series lead of 240-223. When the Brewers moved to the National League in 1998, the two teams began facing off in interleague play, which was introduced in 1997. The Twins are currently managed by former Brewer great and Hall of Famer, Paul Molitor, who played his last three season with the Twins.
"This bobblehead is the perfect way for Brewers and Twins fans to commemorate a great matchup between two border rivals,” Phil Sklar, Co-Founder and CEO of the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum, said. “Although the rivalry isn’t as intense as the football rivalry between the two states, it’s a great series between states with very passionate sports fans.”
