1960’s Philadelphia Eagles Game-Worn Helmet
Out of stock
Through the seasons spanning the late 1960’s to early ’70’s, the Philadelphia Eagles were the perennial cellar-dwellers in the NFC East. However, no one criticized their triumphs on the fashion front. They looked great on the field with their highly stylized uniforms and, at the time, they were the only franchise sporting helmets for their road games that were distinctly different from those for their home games. By the early 1970’s, they had adopted a predominantly white helmet, exclusively – before yielding to their now familiar green. This offered helmet is a Riddell TK-2. It is stamped “1970” internally and features a 12-point suspension system. The jaw pads and the rubber crown donut have long since vanished, and the BD-9 two-bar mask isn’t original, but the helmet is a very worthy representation nonetheless. Affixed athletic tape in the interior bears the mildly faded identity, “37”, linking this headgear to Tom Woodeshick. A long-time and productive running back for the Eagles (1963-’71). Remnants of his unique Dunguard mask are evident around the clip openings, but his uniform number is no longer visible on the reverse of the shell. Though with qualification, this is yet a visually compelling and rare game-used Eagles helmet dating to the early 1970’s.
