Authentic Atlanta Falcons Riddell Kra-Lite TK2 helmet from 1971, as evidenced by the ring date stamp inside above the ear hole. This was a Riddell lamp as described below, so the paint, decals and striping on the helmet are authentic and original team issue. This beautiful specimen has been customized with a Schutt style NOP facemask as worn by All-Time Falcons great and fan favorite Tommy Nobis! To round out the package we also added Nobis’ number and name on black dymo tape as equipment managers might have done for identification purposes. You can’t get any closer to owning the real thing, which would cost thousands of dollars. This may be the only one of its kind. Please note: we are not claiming this helmet was worn by Mr. Nobis. Will make a stunning display, and looks like it just came off the field!

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 and padding into them 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. Westbrook Sportscards has been in business since 1988.
