    Good deal or bad deal?

    Just bought an original 1977 Iowa State football helmet signed by Coach Chizik on the auction. It is the helmet the throwbacks copied.Winning bid, $275. How did I do?

    Awesome! I don't think you can put a value on something like that but I'm sure it looks pretty darn sweet!

    Can you buy the original thing from '77, or the new ones from last year?

    Re: Good deal or bad deal?

    Last year I got one of the game-worn helmets worn during the throw-back game and had it signed by Chizik, it sits proudly in a case in my office.


    A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.

    Re: Good deal or bad deal?

    The replica/fake helmets go for $100 on a site. It will cost you $200 for a real life/plain helmet with no decals. Add on the signatures and you made a very good deal.

    Re: Good deal or bad deal?

    It's like buying a car - it doesn't so much matter what you paid for it, so long as you are satisfied with the value you got. You might have gotten it cheaper by some other means, but if you were willing to pay what you paid, who cares?

    Do you have a pic? The one on the site blew goats.

    Edit: you probably haven't got it yet...

    Don't have it yet, but plan to add one of last seasons to make two if I can find one reasonable. Pic was bad. I hope the helmet isn't that fuzzy! Who knows where Chizik will go after he leads us to the Big 12 North Championship? Signature might be worth something.
