Today, the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum unveiled an officially licensed, limited edition bobblehead commemorating the Mount Union Purple Raiders' 13 Football NCAA Division III national championships. The bobblehead is the first of Mount Union's mascot, MUcaw, and features MUcaw holding a replica national championship trophy and his sword, while 12 additional replica trophies are on the base of the bobblehead. The bobbleheads were produced exclusively for the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum by FOCO, an official licensee and manufacturer of Mount Union merchandise.
The limited edition bobbleheads, which are individually numbered to only 1,000, are now available for purchase exclusively in the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum's Online Store. The bobbleheads are $40 each with a flat rate shipping charge of $8 per order.
Mount Union is one of the most storied programs in college football, with the school's 13 Division III Football Championships being record for any football program in any division in a playoff format. Mount Union won the national championship in 1993, 1996, 1997, 1998, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2005, 2006, 2008, 2012, 2015 and 2017. The school has a rich football tradition dating to 1893 when the school played its first football game, and Mount Union Stadium is the oldest college football stadium in the state of Ohio.
The football program went 109-2 over eight seasons from the start of the 1996 season through 2003. In that time, Mount Union won six national titles, eight conference championships, and had winning streaks of 54 and 55 games. On October 16, 1999, Mount Union broke the NCAA football record for consecutive victories with their 48th straight win, breaking the previous record of 47 held by the Oklahoma Sooners since 1957.
"This bobblehead is the perfect way for Mount Union fans to commemorate the school's historic 13 football championships," said Phil Sklar, Co-Founder and CEO of the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum. "These will be cherished collectibles that celebrate the tremendous success of Mount Union's football program."
