The most successful mascot in Georgia history passed away on January 23, and while his legacy will live on forever in the hearts of Bulldogs fans, Uga X has been given a most noteworthy honor.
On Friday, February 9, the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum released a limited edition bobblehead honoring the life and legacy of the beloved Uga X.
From the Hall of Fame:
- The first batch of the Uga X Bobbleheads recently arrived, and are available for sale in our Online Store at this link as well as at The Red Zone and The Clubhouse in Athens. The first batch is expected to sell out early Friday morning based on a presale opportunity for previous customers and the second batch is scheduled to arrive in May.
- Each bobblehead is individually numbered to only 2,023 to commemorate the year when Uga XI took over the mascot duties from Uga X at the Collaring Ceremony at the G-Day Game in April 2023.
- Standing on a University of Georgia logo base bearing the name Uga X on the front and Que on the back, the Uga X bobblehead has its tongue out in a playful fashion while wearing his custom-made jersey.
The Bulldogs’ good luck charm, Uga X retired the winningest mascot in Georgia history. On the football field, the Bulldogs had a 91-18 record during his tenure, including back-to-back College Football Playoff National Championships, two SEC titles and victories in the Rose, Sugar, Orange, and Peach Bowls. Que passed Uga VI, who reigned from 1999 to 2008, as the university’s winningest bulldog.
"Bobbleheads are the ultimate way to honor and celebrate a person or mascot, and we think this bobblehead of Uga X is the perfect tribute to his amazing life,” National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum co-founder and CEO Phil Sklar stated. “Uga X is loved throughout the state of Georgia and well beyond by Bulldogs fans, alumni, students, faculty, staff, and community members who had the privilege of watching and interacting with the beloved bulldog for many years!”
All 11 official live Georgia Bulldogs mascots who have taken the mantle as Uga have been part of a line of pure white English bulldogs owned by the Frank W. “Sonny” Seiler family in Savannah, Georgia, beginning with Uga I (aka Hood’s Ole Dan), who was born on December 2nd, 1955.
The National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum, which is located at 170 S. 1st. St. in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, opened on February 1st, 2019. The HOF and Museum also produces high-quality, customized bobbleheads for retail sales as well as for organizations and teams across the country.
