Scope and Content
The collection contains a HokieBird Bobblehead that is primarily maroon with orange beak and feet as well as tailfeathers that are white with light streaks of yellow and pink. Its right hand is raised with its index finger extended, representing the number one. It stands on a green pedastal with the words "VIRGINIA TECH" in black on the front. The bobblehead is undated, but is likely from the 2000s or 2010s. A gold sticker on the bottom of the pedastal includes a logo for "PPi Sports," the web address "www.gamedaymarketing.com," and the phrase "Made in China."
