The Pro Football Hall of Fame, Canton, Ohio, and The Franklin Mint have partnered to offer limited-edition mini bronze replica busts of Hall of Famers.

The busts debuted at the Hall’s annual Enshrinement Weekend in August, and featured Joe Montana, Walter Payton, Joe Namath, Terry Bradshaw and Emmitt Smith. Franklin Mint will release new mini busts every year.

“The limited-edition replica mini bronze busts are spectacular and uniquely rare collectibles,” says Steve Strawbridge, the Hall of Fame’s senior vice president of merchandising and licensing. “The Hall is thrilled to work with The Franklin Mint to provide all football fans the opportunity to purchase such an exceptional item that truly encapsulates the Hall’s mission to honor the heroes of the game, preserve its history, promote its values and celebrate excellence everywhere.”

Each mini bust is 5 inches high and weighs 9 ounces, and is retailed at $29.99.
