Hermann the German

I picked up this bobblehead recently.  Hermann the German is a staple in New Ulm, MN. Back in 2012, the New Ulm Convention & Visitor Bureau came up with an ad campaign featuring Hermann the German.  Part of it was to make bobbleheads of his likeness and sell them.  I believe between 500 and 1000 were produced and they sold out pretty quickly.

I've seen these on eBay now and then but never pulled the trigger.  Glad I didn't as I got it for less than eBay prices.  It's a pretty cool bobblehead and of course I wanted to add it to my collection since it has Minnesota ties!  Even better - I mentioned this as a goal of mine in my Goals Addition blog!
