The Delaware State University Hornets are getting their own officially licensed bobbleheads, part of a limited-edition series for 13 Historically Black Colleges and Universities.

The bobbleheads are produced by the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum.

They were released in celebration of Black History Month, but the Hornet bobbleheads won’t be scheduled to ship until April.

Each bobblehead is individually numbered to 2,023, and they are only available through the museum’s store.

The bobbleheads are $35 each plus a flat-rate shipping charge of $8 per order.

The schools and mascots included in the series are Alabama A&M University Bulldogs, Alabama State University Hornets, Delaware State University Hornets, Florida A&M University Rattlers, Fayetteville State University Broncos, Grambling State University Tigers, Howard University Bison, Jackson State University Tigers, Morgan State University Bears, North Carolina A&T State University Aggies, North Carolina Central University Eagles, Norfolk State University Spartans and Tuskegee University Golden Tigers.

The museum released a University of Delaware YouDee in January, and the first batch sold out.

One Wilmington-based entrepreneur on Feb. 1 posted one on eBay for $216.99.

A second YouDee batch (again, individually numbered up to 2,023) is expected to ship in May. They’re $35, plus shipping.
