“Stand clear of the closing doors, please. Now heading uptown to 34th Street, it’s the RJ Barrett New York Knicks 2023 City Jersey Bobblehead.”
FOCO launched a new limited RJ Barrett bobblehead Friday. The timing was perfect as the Knicks’ starting wing is beginning to heat up.
After another slow start, Barrett has found his rhythm lately, helping the Knicks win eight of their last nine games.
Barrett is coming off his second 30-point game of the season in a close loss to his hometown team Toronto Raptors, which snapped the Knicks’ eight-game winning streak.
Over his past 10 games, Barrett averaged 21.7 points, 5.9 rebounds, and 2.8 assists while shooting 45.8 percent from the field and 37 percent from the three-point zone. It was a remarkable leap from a 40.6 percent overall shooting and just 28.1 percent from deep in his the Knicks’ first 22 games this season.
The new Barrett bobblehead features the former no. 3 overall pick wearing his City Edition gameday uniform in an action pose ready to make big plays such as the thunderous left-handed dunk he unleashed late in the game against the Raptors.
The handcrafted and hand-painted City Edition jersey-inspired bobblehead has tiny details that scream big about your Knicks fandom.
The base and backdrop feature the 34th street subway station, the gateway to the Mecca, the Knicks’ iconic home court. Above it is a Knicks text in graffiti style representing New York’s street art culture.
The text Madison Square Garden is decorated in the background with Barrett’s name and jersey number, along with the words MSG in a playfully-designed subway lines logo. NYC texts complete the aesthetically pleasing display.
At the bonus? It’s the Knicks’ iconic 90s-inspired logo at the back of the bobblehead.
The Barrett city edition bobblehead is limited to 100 only. It is now available for pre-order at FOCO’s official website.
