Rare original and vintage WIlson football helmet from the 1960s with a complete set of padding. This beauty has been customized to represent the helmet worn by All-Time great Dick Butkus as shown in the photos by painting it Bears midnight blue and adding a Schutt style reproduction butterfly JOP facemask. We then added thin mil iconic Bears white “C” decals appropriately placed on the sides. As many folks are aware, the Bears are one of the few teams which used Wilson helmets during this period of the 1960s.

PLEASE READ- This is truly a custom one of a kind helmet and was built to represent a game worn helmet of the team shown. Please understand what you are buying. If you want a perfectly pristine brand new looking helmet which costs $1500 to $2500 this is not the helmet for you. However, if you want an affordable vintage helmet which will display nicely, this is your helmet!

This helmet was built by lightly sanding the outside and cleaning the inside before painting the outside of the shell. It has flaws just like the helmets worn during the 1960s, but will display nicely. These were built to put on the shelf or mantle and enjoy discussions about the golden era of football!

This is a nice size 7 1/4 helmet.

Please see photos for condition. The padding is still nice and pliable and by itself is worth the asking price.

PLEASE NOTE: we are not claiming this helmet was issued or worn by Mr. Butkus or the Bears.

Many of our helmets are vintage from the 1960's and 1970's. 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.
