Detroit Lions Riddell Classic RK4 Kra-Lite helmet, striped with Lions blue striping, and decaled with the thin mil no-outline Lion, as the Lions wore from 1961-1968. Note the photos of Lions All-time great and fan favorite Joe Schmidt.

The RK4 helmets are readily recognizable by the 6-spoke suspension.

To round out this incredible package, we have added an early 1960s style OPO Cowcatcher facemask ($100 value) exactly as Schmidt would have worn during the early 1960s.

This may truly be a one of a kind helmet!

PLEASE NOTE: we are not claiming this helmet was issued or worn by the Lions or Mr. Schmidt. This helmet looks exactly as the photos of Mr. Schmidt. Helmet does have one small spot on rear center ridge, but still displays beautifully!

About Riddell Classic Kra-Lite RK2 Football Helmets-

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 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.
