MILWAUKEE (WBBM NEWSRADIO) -- Relive Game 7 of the 2016 World Series with a Pat Hughes bobblehead.

The National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum unveiled Friday morning an officially licensed, limited edition bobblehead featuring Pat Hughes, which plays his historic radio call of the final out in Game 7 of the 2016 World Series.

The bobblehead features the Cubs broadcaster at an announcer’s desk holding a microphone. With the push of a button, the bobblehead plays Pat’s legendary call from the historic Nov. 2 evening in Cleveland when the Cubs became World Series Champions for the first time in 108 years.

“A little bouncer slowly toward Bryant. He will glove it and throw to Rizzo. It's in time! And the Chicago Cubs win the World Series! The Cubs come pouring out of the dugout, jumping up and down like a bunch of delirious 10-year-olds. The Cubs have done it!” 

Pat Hughes has been the radio play-by-play voice of the Chicago Cubs since 1996 and his voice has become one that Cubs fans across the country love to hear each season. Pat’s legendary call was heard and replayed by millions of Cubs fans listening to his broadcast on WSCR The Score late into the night of Nov. 2 and the morning of Nov. 3 for those on the east coast.

"Pat’s call of the clinching play that gave the Cubs and their fans the team’s first World Series title in 108 years will be something that will give goosebumps to many generations of Cubs fans,” said Phil Sklar, Co-Founder and CEO of the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum. “We are thrilled to team up with Pat on this bobblehead that we’re confident will become a treasured keepsake that Cubs fans will pass down from generation to generation.”

The Hall of Fame is only selling 2,016 of the Pat Hughes bobblehead. A limited number will be produced and shipped before Christmas for $45, and the remaining will be sold and shipped before the Cubs Convention in January for $40. Shipping is a flat rate of $8 per order. You can purchase one here
