Update: St. Louis Cardinals Rally Cat Bobblehead Sells Out Fast, But More To Come

This morning, the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum unveiled a limited-edition bobblehead featuring the St. Louis Cardinals Rally Cat. On August 9th, 2017, the Rally Cat ran onto the outfield at Busch Stadium. Moments after Cardinals' grounds crew member Lucas Hackmann captured the cat, Yadier Molina hit a grand slam to take the lead and eventually win the game.

The cat, who bit Hackmann while being escorted off the field, became known as the Rally Cat for its role in igniting the Cardinals’ rally. 

The limited edition bobbleheads sold out quickly, but Cardinals fans need not worry, as there will be a second edition with the Rally Cat wearing a red Cardinals jersey!

Fans can pre-order the bobblehead now, and they are expected to ship in July. They are also $40 each with a flat rate shipping of $8 per order. We encourage people to purchase their bobblehead during the pre-order so they don't miss out on this version, which will also be individually numbered.

"As soon as we heard about the Rally Squirrel we knew it would make for a fun bobblehead,” said Phil Sklar, Co-Founder and CEO of the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum. “We’re familiar with the celebrity sports animals with Hank here in Milwaukee, and we wanted to give fans to have their very own Rally Cat, albeit in bobblehead form.”

Although the Cardinals didn’t end up keeping the Rally Cat, its instant celebrity status shined the light on animal welfare issues. In addition, the Cardinals hosted a Rally Cat Appreciate Day on August 9th, 2017, and a portion of each ticket was donated by the Cardinals to Tony La Russa’s Animal Rescue Foundation and St. Louis Feral Cat Outreach. The National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum donated Rally Cat bobbleheads to the St. Louis Feral Cat Outreach and to Tony La Russa’s Animal Rescue Foundation to help support the important missions of both organizations.

The bobbleheads were produced exclusively for the National Bobblehead HOF and Museum by FOCO and are officially licensed.
