Vintage Football Helmet


Antique Football Helmet

Moleskin and Leather Football Helmet - Spalding Flat Top

ITEM 1: This is an Exceptionally Scarce, First Generation, Spalding Moleskin and Leather, Flat-Top Style Football Helmet.  This is the earliest example of a flat-top football helmet that we have identified in the Spalding catalogs. The primary identifying characteristic is the fixed leather chin strap with button closure. Additionally, the pre-compressed felt interior, which in this helmet is a thin padded lining of rough wool, is a second indicator. Those characteristics identify this helmet as an extremely scarce variation, the first that we have ever seen or handled!  All that aside, this exceptional, vintage football helmet is a stunning example from this era. Made by the A. G. Spalding Sporting Goods Company, it is of the highest quality. The condition is outstanding as it exhibits very moderate use. It represents well, the classic "flat-top" style when referring to vintage leather helmets. This high quality, vintage football helmet remains in solid EX-MT condition! SOLD

Antique Football Helmet 1910's Era

ITEM 2: Offered here is an unusual antique football helmet made by the Folsom Sporting Goods Company. Folsom did offer a full line of sports equipment but the helmets are rather scarce. The Folsom logo is deeply stamped into the leather, a circular logo which reads "HIGH QUALITY - SPORTING GOODS - FOLSOM." This is indeed a high quality leather football helmet which remains in exceptional EX-MT to NR-MT condition. The interior exhibits minimal use, and as the images indicate, the exterior leather remains supple and in wonderful condition also. A very solid example from this era which will be a nice addition to any antique football helmet collection. SOLD

Folk Art Leather Football Helmet - 1920-1930's

ITEM 5: This is a 1920-1930’s Folk Art Football Helmet. This is an exceptional and very unique, vintage football helmet. The helmet itself is a high quality, scarce style with the oversized piece for forehead protection, sometimes referred to as the "turtle-shell" style. But what really sets this helmet aside from others is the one-of-a-kind paint work that has been done on the helmet to give it the folk art appeal. The same style of paint work that is done on the front is also on the back of the helmet. It is a truly unique leather football helmet and remains in outstanding, EX-MT condition! Price $550

1930-1940’s MacGregor H612 Leather Football Helmet

ITEM 6: This is a 1930-1940’s MacGregor H612 Leather Football Helmet. The MacGregor model H612 was far and away the most popular college football helmet in the 1930's and 1940's. Used by Notre Dame, Navy, Penn and countless other colleges and universities. It is a tank of a helmet and withstood the gridiron well. This example has been painted silver but we have no provenance on this helmet so we cannot say for certain what school it is from. Likely though, that is was a large school as these helmets were among the most expensive and were not something to be found on the sandlots or even high school teams. The condition is excellent. Price $250
