MILWAUKEE, WI — Sixty-five years ago this months, the players on a tiny high school basketball team made Indiana sports history. The story of the Milan Miracle became the basis for the movie "Hoosiers."

Little Milan High School beat Muncie Central to win the 1954 State Basketball Championship. Bobby Plump scored the winning shot with three seconds remaining.

To mark this milestone, the National Bobblehead Hall of fame Museum introduced a set of bobbleheads of all 12 players on the 1954 Milan team.

They are limited editions of 500 each. Each player holds a replica of the state championship trophy and basketball.

The bobbleheads are $25 each or $250 for the set of 12; shipping is a flat $8. A portion of the sales benefits the Milan 1954 Hoosiers Museum.

You can go to the Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum online to make your purchase.
