MILWAUKEE — As a part of Milwaukee Day on Tuesday (4/14), the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum has released a brand new bobblehead.

If you live in or around Milwaukee, you have likely heard of Milverine. You know, the guy that looks like Hugh Jackman's Wolverine and who recently had a documentary made about him?

Milwaukee native John Hamann is the man behind the nickname, and he's Milwaukee famous. Sightings of him have been reported all throughout Milwaukee, and he's become a celebrity to many.

Now, he's being honored by the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame Museum. As a part of Milwaukee Day, also known as 414 Day, Hamann is getting his very own bobblehead.

That's right, the same place that has Fauci and Yelich bobbleheads will be selling a Milverine bobblehead.

With every purchase of the Milverine bobblehead, $5 will be donated to Hamann's charity of choice, the Wisconsin Humane Society.

Within the documentary, they highlighted the making of the bobblehead.
