This is a great set I brought home with me from the 2013 Grey Cup in Rider Nation! These 8 bobble heads were attached to Wiser's Whiskey bottles only in the Regina area during the Grey Cup. They are a little taller than 4" in height. I believe that one store did not have all 8 variant bobble heads so to get all 8 is rare as one would have to purchase 8 different bottles of whiskey plus visit different store locations to get them all. Great piece for you Riders fans or CFL collectors. All of these are mint in original packaging. Auction is for 1 complete set of 8 bobble heads.
