When the Capitals won it all in 2018, there were several Stanley Cup champion bobbleheads released that summer that were must-haves.
There were bobbleheads of TJ Oshie riding the Metro, Evgeny Kuznetsov doing the bird celebration, Braden Holtby making The Save, Lars Eller celebrating his Cup-winning goal during Game Five, and Devante Smith-Pelly holding up a championship belt. All of the bobbleheads are super creative (Kuzy’s arms bobble) and now all of them reside in my Capitals-themed basement.
Now there’s another championship bobblehead that you, me, and pretty much every other Caps fan in existence is going to want to own. It’s a bobblehead of Alex Ovechkin holding the Stanley Cup up with Nicklas Backstrom. Together.
The moment the bobblehead depicts is when Ovechkin first handed the Backstrom the Stanley Cup. Backstrom, Ovechkin’s longtime center and setup man, was the second Capitals player to hold up the championship trophy. The bobblehead perfectly captures the players’ euphoric faces and nails details like Ovechkin’s missing tooth and his yellow skate laces.
If you want this bobblehead or one of the championship ones you previously missed out on, we worked out a special deal with FOCO to make it more affordable for RMNB readers. If you buy 2 or more of the Capitals’ bobbleheads remaining in stock, you can take 18 percent off your total order if you use the promo code Machine during checkout. This deal will run through now until November 15. And if you ask me, it’s a perfect early Christmas gift.

7:40 pm update: The Ovechkin/Backstrom bobblehead has sold out (wow that was fast).
Other Capitals’ Stanley Cup bobbleheads are still available but I’m told inventory is very low.
