NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS Marietta Clear Shell Vintage Game Used Football Helmet 1975
REAL STUFF SPORTS CONTINUES ITS LINE OF RARE HELMETS. Note: I have had some questions from potential buyers about the Patriot decals on the helmet. These are original, rare, Marietta factory decals – original to the helmet from 1975. Marietta used their own decals for most of the helmets that they produced – which many times were different from what the Riddell factory used. Many of the decals that they used were printed on clear vinyl – just like the on-field decals are produced today. Many of them were not die-cut colored vinyl like Riddell used – i. Giants, Bills, Patriots, Vikings, etc. They were ahead of their time so to speak on not only their padded helmets, but also on their decals. We will be listing another Marietta helmet, a Steelers, which has different decals on it than the Riddell helmets – but were used by the team, on the field, with one of the helmets with the funky Steelers decal currently in the Hall of Fame. NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS original MARIETTA Kineomatic-21 Clear Shell Suspension helmet. This helmet is original. This is a very rare helmet. You have seen many Patriot photos of players in the 1970’s wearing Riddell and MacGregor helmets. However how many photos have you seen of players on the Patriots wearing a Marietta clear shell helmet? The shell, the leather padding, Dungard DG140 facemask, and Dungard hardware are all original to the helmet and are from 1975. This is an awesome helmet. This is the older style Dungard DG140 with the round upper mount holes – not the slots as you see more often. This helmet has the decals and the striping on the outside of the helmet. Marietta produced helmets with decals on the outside and on the interior of the helmet. Same with the striping. Some helmets have the stripes on the interior and the logo decals on the outside of the helmet. It has the newer Marietta decals on the rear – under the shell. The Patriot logos are adherred to the helmet very well – for 40 years old. The heads of the logo are starting to lift from the helmet as can be seen in the photos. No attempt has been made to reattach them. The helmet has the original factory paint – including the original factory interior gray paint. The jawpads are missing from the helmet – most likely kept by the Patriots when they sent the helmet back. There are no player numbers on the exterior rear of the helmet, and no player identifiers on the inside. Heck, that is the most fun for me is trying to determine who’s helmet it belonged to and trying to find a photo match. I did not do that with this helmet. The helmet was sourced originally by a long time employee of Marietta. A very rare helmet. Sorry for the price. This may very well be the only one that you will ever see – perhaps a one of a kind! You’ve seen 2013 game worn jerseys go for much higher. Give me a break. That player will now start to wear a different jersey every half of every game. There will be 60 of them available in just a few short years. How many other Patriots Marietta’s have you seen? We have been doing this a long time. This is the only one we have seen.
