The National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum in Milwaukee on Friday will release a limited-edition bobblehead of Smith-Schuster, perched on his bike in his Steelers uniform atop a platform reading "JuJu's Sweet Ride."
The bobblehead pokes fun at a suspenseful 24 hours in Pittsburgh last October when the city was searching intensively for Smith-Schuster's beloved bike, which he reported stolen. The bike, his only means of transportation to and from practice, was recovered by Mount Oliver police, handed over by a man at a bar who said he bought it on the street for $200.
Phil Sklar, co-founder and CEO of the museum, called the story a "perfect opportunity for a fun bobblehead." The museum, which will move into a permanent location this year, claims to harness the world's largest collection of bobbleheads.
This one, memorializing an important piece of Pittsburgh folklore, will be available for purchase on the museum's website at a cost of $40. Each will be individually numbered to 1,000.
