Bobbleheads Newsbeat

Saturday, February 28, 2015

Bobblehead collectors Phil Sklar and Brad Novak turn pro by launching National HOF and Museum

The resultant publicity increased the Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum’s membership rolls, which now include individuals in more than 40 states. Membership, which can be had for as little as $20, includes perks such as free admission to the museum and the ability to vote in Bobblehead Hall of Fame elections. (Fifty bobbleheads will be inducted as part of the initial class, with four per year receiving the honor after that). To create additional revenue, Novak and Sklar have also begun designing bobbleheads. Their first effort in that regard, featuring collegiate basketball star turned NFL player Demetrius Harris, was commissioned by the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. The Syracuse Chiefs, Triple-A affiliate of the Washington Nationals, are clients as well.
