Packers' good luck charm sculpted into custom bobblehead
The Packers' success is also a win-win for an 'overnight celebrity' and Children's Hospital of Wisconsin.
The co-founders of the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum have designed a new figurine: The Lucky Beard Guy bobblehead of Jeremy Wilcox.
Wilcox's facial hair is being credited, by many, as the reason why the Packers went undefeated at Lambeau Field this season. It's said to be the Packers' good luck charm if you pull on it.
To keep that spirit alive, the Wilcox Bobblehead will have a life-like beard for everyone to tug on. When you do, Jeremy's head bobbles.
Brad Novak and Phil Sklar came up with the idea a just weeks ago. They got in touch with Wilcox about the idea and he was immediately on board.
For $15, fans can pre-order of the bobblehead online. One dollar from each sale will benefit the Children's Hospital, Jeremy's charity of choice.
The figurines aren't expected to arrive until April, but you can keep track of them during production.
\"People who go to the website will be able to see the progress of the Bobblehead,\" said Sklar. \"Now you see the picture. In a few days, hopefully you'll be able to see the mold and then the painted mold, and then finally the Bobblehead that'll be coming for people to enjoy.\"
A limited number of the Lucky Beard Guy bobblehead's will be available. To order your's, visit www.luckybeardguy.com.
