    Game worn football helmets

    I went to the Georgia/Georgia Tech game last night and saw that they sell game worn football helmets in the Georgia bookstore. I've never been to the bookstore at Iowa State, do they sell them there also?

    I've never seen them, but never been looking for them either.

    No...a few years ago when we were making the color change, they sold a ton of them at the fall and spring equipment sales though.

    Re: Game worn football helmets

    Such a cool thing! They had the Georgia black helmets from the Florida game last year and the red ones. I told my girlfriend that if this was Iowa State I would be in heaven...I've got one of the last helmets and one from the throwback auction. Would be nice to have one of the new ones.

    Re: Game worn football helmets

    I have several game worn helmets from the walden and Mac era available for trade. No new style ones though. Though I would consider a two for one deal if someone has one.

    Re: Game worn football helmets

    They sell helmets at the bookstore but they are not game worn. It would be cool if they did sell game worn helmets, I would probably buy one.

I donít care where you come from, whether itís Texas, Florida, California, or right here in the state of Iowa, I donít care about any of thatÖ But what I did care about is moving forward from that day on, that we were one team." -Paul Rhoads

    Re: Game worn football helmets

    I was just thinking about this because I have a helmet from 1977 and I want a current helmet to face opposite on the shelf in my office. I don't really care if it is game worn but are the ones in the bookstore real helmets or replicas? I want to find a real helmet if I can, game worn or not.

    Re: Game worn football helmets

    it is really hard to find real football helmets for sale anymore. Most have been modified with bars inside to keep people from wearing them. I mean, would any college kids do anything less than smart, with a football helmet at their disposal?


    There can be only one.

    Is your photo site down? The one with the old 80's photos.
