Very rare New Orleans Saints Riddell Kra-Lite TK2 helmet from 1970 as evidenced by no ring date stamp inside the helmet and the inside painted gray. This was a Riddell lamp as described below, so helmet includes vintage double layered decals and vintage thin mil striping as well. That’s right- you read that correctly- these decals are vintage and layered. The black and white layers are 2 different pieces of vinyl. 

To make this beauty even more desirable we have customized this helmet by adding an original RIDDell single bar quarterback facemask as worn by All-Time great and Saints fan favorite, Billy Kilmer. To round out the package we have added clear tape above the ear hole with number 17 just as Saints equipment managers might have done for identification purposes. See photos for beautiful condition- helmet looks like it just came off the field.

The Saints were among the most scarcely made lamps, and therefore are very rare.

PLEASE NOTE: We are not claiming this helmet was issued or used by the Saints in an NFL game. Will make a stunning display!

Many of our helmets are vintage from the 1960's and 1970's. We offer many helmets manufactured by Riddell which were destined to be actual game used NFL helmets but before they could be shipped out to the teams, these helmets were used to make very collectible lamps for retail sale. These helmets had the suspension removed and were then attached to a wooden base with additional lamp parts attached. We have removed these helmets from the lamp and installed a new suspension identical to the one used in the 1960s and 1970s, and the result is a stunning and amazing vintage helmet for with vintage authentic team decals and Riddell 2-bar BD-9 facemasks. All of our helmets are for display purposes only! They are not to be used or worn for competitive play.
