JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - As if throwing out the first pitch at a Cubs game wasn’t enough, the famous alligator trapper who captured Chance the Snapper is now getting his own bobblehead.
On Thursday, the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame unveiled the first images of what the doll will look like. The renderings show Frank Robb cradling the gator that takes its name from Chance the Rapper.
“The Lord blessed me with the gift of working with Crocodilians, and the blessings he and the City of Chicago have provided me are beyond my comprehension,” Robb said.
A dollar from the sale of each doll will go toward helping animals in need in Chicago.
Robb became a household name this month after traveling up to the Windy City to catch the gator, which had eluded authorities for a week after a sighting at Humboldt Park.
Since then, Robb has returned to Florida. As for Chance, it’s now getting adjusted to its new home at the St. Augustine Alligator Farm Zoological Park.
The limited edition dolls are available for pre-order on the Bobblehead Hall of Fame’s website for $25 each plus $8 shipping.
