The Jesse Ventura celebrity doll was made in 1999 to raise funds for his campaign. It was licensed by Ventura for Minnesota, Inc, a non-profit corporation. Ventura was the 38th Governor of Minnesota from 1999-2003, a Navy Seal in the Vietnam War, and a professional wrestler.
The Jesse Ventura dolls were manufactured in China by Formative Intl. Co. Ltd for Toyboy Man/Tierschel & Assoc in Minneapolis. It came in three versions: Governor of Minnesota (pictured here), United Navy Seal, and Volunteer Football Coach.
The doll is dressed in a shiny dark black suit with a buckled belt, white collared shirt, a purple tie, and black dress shoes. It is fully articulated and pose-able.
