Very rare Philadelphia Eagles Riddell TK2 helmet from 1973, as shown by the ring date stamp above the earhole. This was a Riddell lamp as described below, so helmet includes vintage and original paint and decals applied by RIDDell to team specifications at the time of manufacture.

This helmet also includes an original RIDDell 1- bar BT-5 facemask as worn by Eagles all time great and fan favorite, Roman Gabriel. This helmet has also been customized by adding Gabriel’s number 5 to the rear of the helmet in proper color, size, and font, to closely replicate a helmet as worn by one of the most popular of the Eagles at that time. This particular helmet has a wonderful patina to it as well.

Please note: We are not claiming this helmet was worn or issued by the Eagles of Mr. Gabriel. This is one of the most rare of the RIDDell lamps- when is the last time you saw one? 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.
