We have recently purchased a group of prototypes built by RIDDell for consideration of production near the end of their production of the Classic RK Series of throwback proline helmets! For some versions of a team’s particular style, as many as 3-4 helmets were built while for others there may have been only one or two. While we do not know which teams had what numbers produced of which versions, we do know these prototypes are indeed rare and never went into production. This is one of those prototypes.

Los Angeles Rams Riddell Classic RK2 Kra-Lite helmet, with iconic gold Rams horns as the Rams used beginning in 1973! This beauty even has authentic original vintage size large RIDDell leather jaw pads!

Helmet includes all you see, and represents the helmets worn by the Rams during the 1970s. We have added a full cage, Schutt style NJOP facemask and customized as Merlin Olsen might have worn that year if he had used a RK2. To complete the package we have also added Olsen’s name and number on black Dymo tape as Rams equipment managers used.

This helmet displays beautifully! Please continue reading.

Riddell Classic Kra-Lite RK2 Football Helmet-

A classic step back in time! The classic shape of the Riddell RK's slightly flared shell are complimented by the handsome metal rivets. These helmets are 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, 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 1950s-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.
