The Milwaukee Brewers and Chicago Cubs face off in a critical series this weekend as both teams are jockeying for position in the National League Central race. To commemorate the renewal of this 19-times-per-year rivalry, Milwaukee’s own National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum has released a new figure pitting the two mascots locked in battle with each other.
The Cubs vs. Brewers I-94 Rivalry Bobblehead features Brewers’ mascot, Barrelman, getting ready to face off against Cubs’ mascot, Clark. The figure is part of an officially licensed series featuring MLB’s biggest rivalries, which also includes Brewers vs. Twins, Cardinals vs. Cubs, Rangers vs. Astros, and many others. Each bobble is numbered to only 1,000 and costs $60 at the Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum or through the link at their website.
Also available through the Bobblehead HOF is a new “Show us the Love” figure. When Lorenzo Cain rejoined the team last season, he brought with him his “show us the love” celebration, imploring fans to cheer after a base hit or big defensive play. The celebration was quickly adopted by the rest of the team and the fans who show up to Miller Park every game, and has continued into the 2019 season. This figure features the Bernie Brewers mascot demonstrating the now famous “show us the love” hand motion.
Like the Rivalry Bobble, this figure is individually numbered to 1,000 and is available at the Museum or online through the website link. The cost for this one is $40. Both bobbleheads were produced and manufactured by FOCO.
The National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum is now open seven days a week, from 10a-6p on Monday through Friday and 10a-5p on the weekends. Check out the thousands of bobbles they have on site as well as their store at 170C S 1st St in Milwaukee, on the second floor.
