RARE custom one of a kind recently manufactured helmet, made to replicate the Philadelphia Eagles Riddell Kra-Lite TK5 helmet as worn by all the Eagles greats of the late 1950s to early 1960s. This gorgeous specimen has been custom painted by painting the shell silver, then taping off the design of the wings on the silver shell, painting with Eagles Kelley green paint, then removing the tape, leaving the iconic Eagles silver wings. This is exactly how Riddell produced these helmets back in the 1960s. There are no decals on this helmet like all the other Eagles helmets you find on the market these days.

This helmet is also outfitted with the iconic single bar facemask as worn by All-Time Great and Hall of Famer, Norm Van Brocklin early in his Eagles career. See photos of Van Brocklin. Photos are not included with purchase but are for reference only. We have then added authentic athletic tape with “VAN”, (the abbreviation used for Van Brocklin) inside above the earhole, as Eagles equipment managers might have done for identification purposes. 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 Eagles or Mr. Van Brocklin.

TK helmets offer a classic step back in time! The classic shape of the TK's fully rounded 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.
