Officially Licensed Michigan Wolverines Riddell Classic Kra-Lite RK2 helmet, with painted “wing and stripes” logo, just as the Wolverines wore during their glory years where they average almost 10 wins per year, and shared claims to two National Championships, in 1964 and 1973. You read correctly- the gold you see is painted, not decals like most other Michigan helmets you find. The RK2 helmets are highly collectible in themselves, and any of the college versions were minimally produced and are becoming quite rare. This amazing specimen is in beautiful condition- see all photos- and will make a stunning display. It looks like it just came off the field! See full description of the Classic RK2 below.

Riddell Classic Kra-Lite RK2 helmet-

A classic step back in time! The classic shape of the Riddell RK's slightly flared shell and handsome metal rivets are complemented by the attachment of an original Riddell two bar facemask. These helmets are recently manufactured Riddell Pro-Line Authentic On Field helmets! The adult size 7 3/8 suspension webbing is identical to the original right down to the same brown thread that was used to stitch it together. Thin mil decals exactly as the originals, real leather jaw pads, gray toned strap and identical front style labeling makes this helmet indistinguishable from the original. They are painted gray inside just as the Riddell vintage originals from the 1960's, and also have the "KRA-LITE" and "RIDDell" trademarks branded into the rear of the helmet, unlike some other helmets you may find on the market these days which have neither. Do not settle for a substitute. Demand the real thing!

PLEASE NOTE- THESE HELMETS HAVE BEEN DISCONTINUED BY RIDDELL IN 2007, AND ARE GETTING DIFFICULT TO FIND! ITEM PICTURED IS ITEM YOU WILL RECEIVE. WE ONLY HAVE ONE OF THESE IN STOCK! All of our helmets are for display purposes only! They are not to be used or worn for competitive play. Westbrook Sportscards has been in business since 1988.
