Forever Collectibles "Legends of The Shoe" Limited Edition National Championship Ring Bobblehead of Michael Jenkins, in his away white uniform. Approximately 9.5" tall, these bobbleheads were issued following Ohio State's historic 14-0 season when they defeated No. 1 Miami in double overtime of the BCS National Championship. Jenkins is most remembered in Buckeye folklore for his "Holy Buckeye" play during that season. Trailing Purdue late in the 4th Quarter and facing 4th and 1, Quarterback Craig Krenzel displayed beautiful touch in dropping a perfect ball over Jenkins' right shoulder for a 39 yard touchdown and an improbable comeback win when Ohio State's offense struggled to move the ball. It set the stage for even more heroics in the final three games in helping the Buckeyes capture the 7th National Championship in school history.

In the 15-player set, both a Red version and a White version were released with the away white jersey being tougher-to-find and more collectible since this is the uniform set they actually wore for the title game. 2,003 were created for each player with this Michael Jenkins numbered 191 out of 2,003. Includes original box.
