Vintage Football Helmet


Antique Football Helmet

Early 1920’s Rawlings Brown Leather “Red Grange” Style Football Helmet

ITEM 1: Offered here is an Early 1920’s Rawlings Brown Leather, “Red Grange” Style, Football Helmet. This exceptional, vintage football helmet is an excellent example from this era. Made by the Rawlings Sporting Goods Company, it is of the highest quality. The chocolate brown leather remains soft and supple, and the interior is firmly intact. Additionally, the original owner attached a "cheat sheet" of the different plays to the interior, a rather unique feature but could be easily removed if desired. The condition is gorgeous EX-MT. An exceptional, high quality, antique football helmet from this era! SOLD

1920-1930’s Leather Football Helmet - Rawlings

ITEM 2: Offered here is a 1920-1930’s Rawlings Leather Football Helmet. This antique football helmet is a very desirable style with the brown leather base and the black leather strips that crisscross over the crown. It is a great representation of what was worn on the gridiron during this time period. This superb, vintage leather football helmet exhibits just the right amount of use resulting in an ideal patina and awesome appearance! It will make for a striking display among your vintage football memorabilia. Price $300

1930-1940’s George A. Reach Leather Football Helmet

ITEM 3: This is a 1930-1940’s George A. Reach Leather Football Helmet. This antique leather football helmet features the wing-front design, made most popular by the University of Michigan Wolverines. We typically do not handle painted leather helmets but this example exhibits great gridiron exposure and retains a wonderful patina. A fine way to add some color to your vintage football helmet collection. Price $175

Late 1930’s Leather Football Helmet with Extremely Unique Rubber Facemask

ITEM 4: This is a Late 1930’s Leather Football Helmet with an Extremely Unique Rubber Facemask. This vintage football helmet is an extremely scarce style. It represents the first style of helmet with a facemask. The facemask is very interesting, it is actually rubber covered metal! I can only imagine the damage that caused when there was a collision with a player without a facemask! It was a short lived design which accounts for it's rarity. The leather helmet has been painted and shows evidence of gridiron exposure giving it a wonderful appearance. A great conversation piece for certain and a high quality example of this very unique style helmet. The condition is excellent with the original chin strap intact! Price $450

1930-1940’s MacGregor H612 Leather Football Helmet

ITEM 5: 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 is factory white in color and has the addition of two maroon stripes painted front to back, flanking the center line. 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. SOLD

1920-1930’s Spalding Two-Color Leather Football Helmet

ITEM 6: 1920-1930’s Spalding 2-Color Leather Football Helmet. The offered antique football helmet represents the typical helmet worn by the professional teams, and colleges as well. The quality is exceptional and on this particular example and the condition is excellent. The spalding logo is located on the forehead area at the front. This fine vintage leather football helmet remains in EX condition and comes with the original chin-strap intact. A great addition to your vintage football helmet collection! SOLD

Folk Art Football Helmet - 1920-1930's

ITEM 7: 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 Wilson Leather Football Helmet

ITEM 8: 1930-1940’s Wilson Leather Football Helmet. This is a wonderful, high quality leather football helmet. Most helmets from this era are brown, black or a combination of the two, this helmet may have been at one time or another but it has been painted silver. It has a great look and resembles the Detroit Lions helmets of the day. This antique football helmet remains in EX-MT condition and is an outstanding example of this style and era. Price $225

Turn of the Century Football Helmet - Spalding Leather Flat-Top

ITEM 9: Turn of the Century Spalding All Leather Flat-Top Football Helmet. 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 positively outstanding as it exhibits very little use. It represents well, the classic "flat-top" style when referring to vintage leather helmets. The Spalding cloth patch is sewn into the wool interior of the helmet, which also remains in pristine condition. This high quality, vintage football helmet remains is EX-MT to NR-MT condition! SOLD

1900-1910 Leather Football Helmet made by Spalding

ITEM 10: This is a 1900-1910 Spalding Leather Football Helmet. This vintage football helmet is an extremely scarce style. It along with the flat-top style is among the very first "dog-ear" style helmets. The lower-back of the helmet remains the same as the Spalding flat-top as it has not yet evolved into the more sturdy and improved design which came much later. With the flat-top having it's own place among vintage football helmet collections, this helmet would be considered the first of the dog-ear style. It remains in fine EX-MT condition and displays wonderfully! SOLD
