In case you didn't know, today is the first ever National Bobblehead day. To celebrate, we figured we'd revisit the most significant bobblehead moment in sneaker history when the University of Oregon gave Nike's Phil Knight his very own bobblehead doll.
Last February, the Oregon Ducks hosted the USC Trojans at Matthew Knight Arena in Eugene for Phil Knight appreciation night. In celebration of Knight's legacy at the school, Oregon gave away free Phil Knight bobbleheads to those attendance, which instantaneously became one of the hottest collector's items of the year. Prices for the free giveaway soared to as much as $75 once the dolls hit eBay. In fitting fashion, the Ducks defeated the Trojans by a score of 78-66, ensuring that Phil Knight Appreciation Knight was a smashing success.
