RARE custom one of a kind recently manufactured helmet, made to replicate the Minnesota Vikings Riddell Kra-Lite RK2 helmets as worn by all the Vikings greats of the 1960s.

This gorgeous specimen has been custom painted with the Vikings’ iconic “Big Horns.” Notice how the horns sit near the top of the ear holes and near the front edge of the helmet, just as the Vikings horns were before the team transitioned to the smaller horn decals in the 1970s.

This was accomplished by a painstaking painting process, resulting in the iconic Vikings horns and trim. This is exactly how Riddell produced these helmets back in the 1960s. There are no decals on this helmet like all the other Vikings helmets you find on the market these days. Just think how this gorgeous helmet will look in your office or den!

This helmet is also outfitted with a 2-bar facemask as worn by All-Time Great Hall of Famer and Fan Favorite Fran Tarkenton during his early Vikings career. See photos of Tarkenton.

Photos are not included in purchase but are for reference only. Helmet comes with appropriate #10 written on red tape inside helmet above ear holes just as Vikings equipment managers might have done for identification purposes too!

To round out the package we have authentic leather jaw pads and soft cup gray and white ribbed chin strap. Absolutely amazing specimen! Don’t miss this one! PLEASE NOTE: we are not claiming this helmet was issued or worn by the Vikings or Mr. Tarkenton.

RK helmets offer a classic step back in time! The classic shape of the RK's slightly flared shell and handsome metal rivets are complemented by the adult size 7 3/8 suspension webbing which is identical to the original right down to the same brown thread that was used to stitch it together and makes this helmet almost indistinguishable from the originals. They are also painted gray inside just as the Riddell vintage originals from the 1960's!

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.
