To celebrate the anniversary of the “Miracle on Ice” Game, the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum has unveiled three licensed bobbleheads. The first bobbleheads feature Herb Brooks and Jack O’Callahan, the head coach and key player of the Gold-Medal-winning 1980 Winter Olympics U.S. hockey team that is famously known for its upset victory over the Soviet Union in the “Miracle on Ice” game on Feb. 22, 1980. The third bobblehead features a generic Team USA player in the 1980 USA hockey jersey. The special-edition bobbleheads are being produced by the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum in collaboration with Official Herb Brooks and Jack O’Callahan licensee, LowSport.

Standing on a red, white and blue base bearing his name in gold, the Herb Brooks bobblehead is wearing a plaid blazer with a brown tie, pants and shoes. The backing of the bobblehead includes Brooks’ famous speech he delivered to his team prior to the “Miracle on Ice” game against the Soviet Union.

The bottom of the speech includes the coach’s signature, along with logos of USA Hockey and the Herb Brooks Foundation. 

Positioned on a circular ice-like base bearing his name, the Jack O’Callahan bobblehead is on his knees with his arms raised in triumph. He is wearing a blue helmet and a white No. 17 USA jersey with his name on the back. This marks the first bobblehead of O’Callahan.

The third bobblehead features a generic Team USA player in the 1980 USA hockey jersey with a sticker pack that lets fans customize the jersey name and number as well as the logo on the top of the base.

The bobbleheads, which are individually numbered to 1,980, are available through the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum’s online store. The bobbleheads are expected to ship in July.

“We’re excited to unveil these bobbleheads of USA Hockey legends, Herb Brooks and Jack O’Callahan as well as a Team USA Hockey bobblehead that fans can customize,” says Phil Sklar, co-founder, chief executive officer, National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum. “Both men were instrumental in one of the greatest moments in sports history and these bobbleheads will be must-haves for sports fans.”
