Miami Hurricanes’ Turnover Chain now has its own bobblehead By David Selig
he Miami Hurricanes’ Turnover Chain has its own song, it’s been replicated on countless T-shirts, and now the most viral jewelry in college football history has its own bobblehead doll.
The National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum unveiled Friday a new figurine that features the University of Miami’s mascot, Sebastian the Ibis, tossing up “The U” hand sign and wearing the chain that added so much shine to the Hurricanes’ 2017 season.
The limited-edition bobbleheads, manufactured by the company FOCO, are being sold online and cost $40, plus a flat-rate shipping charge of $8 per order.
“The Turnover Chain was one of the best stories in college football this past season, and it truly inspired a lot of players and energized Miami’s fan base,” said Phil Sklar, co-founder and CEO of the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum.
The Turnover Chain itself — in all its 10-karat gold glory — is expected to return for the 2018 season, continuing its tradition of being awarded to any UM player who forces a turnover in a game.
