There was a time when some of the finest baseball was played in Detroit. Recently the magic has seemed to elude the Motor City as the team hasn’t won a world title in over twenty years. Reminiscing to the 1960s, however, the team perennially contended for a spot in the postseason. At the time, Al Kaline was the lineup’s major force, smashing the ball out of Tiger Stadium with regularity. Upon retirement, he’d recorded 3,007 hits and 399 home runs. Kaline donned this [size] “7 1/2 ” helmet during the early 60s, when batting helmets were just coming into vogue. This early model batting helmet was made of a fiberglass material with Detroit’s logo responsibly painted on the front exterior. An American Baseball Cap sticker is situated on the inside. The leather headband is complete and shows acceptable use. Kaline topped it off with a magnificent signature (“10”) in silver paint pen across the visor. The city of Detroit will have sports heroes in the future, but none of them will give their entire being to baseball like Kaline did for over two decades.
