Rockford native Fred VanVleet is an NBA champion. And what better way to celebrate that then with a bobblehead?
In what has become an annual tradition that has taken place for over 15 years, the 2019 NBA Champion Toronto Raptors are having limited edition bobbleheads made in their likeness, and Fred VanVleet is included in the series. The bobbleheads feature each player holding a replica of the Larry O’Brien Championship Trophy.
The National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum in Milwaukee, co-founded and run by Guilford graduates Phil Sklar and Brad Novak, has the complete line of officially licensed Toronto Raptors 2019 bobbleheads available for pre-order at the museum’s online store. The bobbleheads are being produced by FOCO.
VanVleet played a pivotal role in the Raptors’ championship, and he is the first Rockford native to be honored with a championship bobblehead for any sport. To order a VanVleet bobblehead, click here.
