GREEN BAY – On July 28, the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame (HOF) and Museum unveiled its newest special edition bobblehead featuring Green Bay Packers Running Back AJ Dillon.
Bobblehead HOF and Museum Co-founder/CEO Phil Sklar said that the Dillon bobblehead joins a long list of Packer players with bobblehead likenesses.
“In terms of Packers, the majority of Hall of Famers and many of the players in the Packers Hall of Fame have had bobbleheads,” he said.
The limited-edition bobblehead is individually numbered to just 500 and shows Dillon wearing a white No. 28 jersey with gold pants with quads that slightly bobble as well.
“Dillon has become a fan favorite who has adopted Wisconsin as his home state. He was given the key to Door County by Destination Door County in November 2021,” stated a release from the HOF and museum.
“A native of Baltimore who played his high school football in New London, Connecticut, the 6-foot, 247-pound Dillon put together three standout seasons at Boston College before declaring early for the NFL Draft.
“In 35 games for the Eagles, Dillon carried the ball 845 times for a school-record 4,382 yards and 38 touchdowns en route to earning first-team All-ACC honors three years in a row.
“Dillon was selected by the Packers in the second round (62nd overall) of the 2020 NFL Draft. During his first three seasons with the Packers, Dillon has accumulated 2,355 total yards (1,815 rushing) and 16 TDs.”
“We are excited to team up with AJ and Bobbles Galore for this unique bobblehead,” Sklar said. “AJ has become a fan favorite for his work both on and off the field, and we know fans are going to love this very unique bobblehead.”
