The National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum unveiled a limited edition bobblehead of Derek Carr in his Fresno State uniform last Thursday.
Phil Sklar, co-founder and CEO of the museum, said in a news release that the bobblehead was an idea sparked by Carr’s success with the Raiders and popularity with Bulldog fans.
“[Carr] has become one of the most popular quarterbacks in the NFL, and we thought a bobblehead featuring [Carr] in his college uniform would be a great collectible for all of his fans,” Sklar said.
Carr attended Fresno State from 2009 to 2013 and had his jersey retired during the 2017 season opener against Incarnate Word.
The Oakland Raiders drafted Carr in 2014, and he earned the starting quarterback job before the first game of the season. Last year, Carr led the Raiders to their first playoff appearance since 2002.
On Oct. 20 the museum also released a bobblehead of former Bulldog and current New York Yankee Aaron Judge in his Fresno State uniform.
Judge hit 52 home runs, an MLB rookie record, in his rookie season this year. He won the 2017 Home Run Derby.
Judge attended Fresno State from 2011 to 2013 and was drafted by the Yankees in the first round of the 2013 MLB Draft.
The bobbleheads are only available for purchase from the museum’s website and start at $40.
