Joe Montana to Dwight Clark “The Catch” Dual Bobblehead Unveiled
Milwaukee, WI – June 11, 2019 -- Today, the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum unveiled an officially licensed, limited-edition bobblehead featuring “The Catch”. The dual bobblehead features San Francisco 49ers quarterback, Joe Montana, shortly after releasing the ball while Dwight Clark is suspended in the air making “The Catch”. With 58 seconds remaining in the NFC Championship game at Candlestick Park on January 10th, 1982, Montana found Clark, who made an acrobatic, leaping catch in the back of the end zone for the game-winning touchdown.
The bobbleheads, which are each individually numbered to only 1,982 for the year of the play, are available for $55 each plus a flat rate shipping cost of $8. The first production run of 500 bobbleheads is in stock and ships now. The bobbleheads are officially licensed and were produced by FOCO exclusively for the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum.
“The Catch” is widely regarded as one of the greatest moments in NFL
history as the unbelievable touchdown drive ended with the remarkable play. The
49ers went on to win Super Bowl XVI, the franchise’s first title, which
propelled San Francisco to one of the best decades for any NFL squad as it went
on to win three additional Super Bowl titles. “The Catch” is also one of the
most memorable plays in Montana’s Hall of Fame career and Clark’s decorated
Montana, who led the University of Notre Dame to the 1977 National Championship, was selected by the San Francisco 49ers with the 82nd overall pick in the 1979 NFL Draft. Montana threw for 40,551 yards and 273 touchdowns in 15 NFL seasons and was a staple in Bill Walsh’s innovative West coast style offense in San Francisco. The star quarterback won two Most Valuable Player Awards (1989, 1990) and was a three-time Super Bowl MVP (1981-82, 1984-85, 1989-90) while being selected to eight Pro Bowls.
Dwight Clark caught 48 touchdown passes and amassed 6,750 receiving yards in his nine year NFL career that was spent entirely with San Francisco. After playing collegiately at Clemson, Clark was selected in the 10th round of the 1979 NFL Draft with the 249th overall pick. Clark, whose number 87 is retired by the 49ers, helped the franchise capture its first two Super Bowl titles.
“We’re thrilled to be releasing this limited edition bobblehead featuring one of the most memorable moments in NFL and sports history,” Co-Founder and CEO of the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum Phil Sklar said. “This dual bobblehead is the perfect way to commemorate ‘The Catch’, and we’re confident this collector’s piece will be a cherished collectible for 49ers fans of all ages.”
