Let the 2021 NBA Championship Bucks merch be unleashed!
This morning, New Jersey-based FOCO released a series of bobbleheads, as well as a range of clothing, drawstring backpacks, toys, home decor and collectibles.
The coolest items are the bobbleheads, which are available for pre-order.
You can get Giannis – or PJ Tucker or Khris Middleton or Jrue Holliday or Brook Lopez or Bobby Portis or a number of other Bucks champs – holding the championship trophy.
Plus there are Bango with trophy bobbleheads and just plain old trophy bobbles.
The bobbles run $45 each and they, like all the merch for sale at the website include Milwaukee Bucks 2021 NBA Championship logo.
“For the first time in decades, the reigning champs play in Milwaukee,” said FOCO Senior Licensing Manager Matthew Katz. “After a bubble finish to last year’s season, and a condensed schedule for this year, seeing the Bucks raise the Larry O’Brien trophy in a packed house is something to cheer.
“We’re excited to give fans the chance to celebrate some more with officially licensed gear commemorating their team’s championship.”
The bobbles are expected to ship by early November.
