Bears fans who love collecting memorabilia will have another reason to head to Soldier Field next season: bobbleheads. Ten of them, in fact.
The franchise announced Tuesday that it will give away bobbleheads to the first 20,000 fans attending each of their home games in 2019. Each attendee will be able to receive a voucher upon entering the stadium that can be exchanged at a designated pickup area for your week’s giveaway.
With the Bears saluting each decade from their history during home games all season, the players given the bobblehead treatment will correspond with the era being honored. For example, the 1920s celebration will come with a Red Grange bobblehead, while the 2000s will come with Brian Urlacher’s oversized noggin bouncing away.
Each week, the team will also parade around six-foot tall replicas of the upcoming giveaway, so you might be able to spot a massive, plastic Sid Luckman in the wild.
