Description

The Seattle Mariners had little hopes of resigning Randy Johnson after the 1998 season. Given little choice, the team jettisoned the future Hall of Fame pitcher to t1:city w_st=”on”>t1:place w_st=”on”>Houston midway through the ’98 campaign. The elongated lefty finished his abbreviated t1:city w_st=”on”>Houston career with a sparkling 10-1 mark and landed in t1:state w_st=”on”>t1:place w_st=”on”>Arizona the following year. This size “7 1/4” helmet was worn by Johnson during his half season in t1:city w_st=”on”>t1:place w_st=”on”>Houston. The ABC manufacturer’s wheel indicates the helmet was made in November of 1993. It is quite common, however, for teams to use helmets for a number of years.

According to Lou Lampson’s letter: “The font of the number “51” (on back) is correct for the Astros during this period. At certain angles under bright light, the outline of a previous number is visible. It appears to be #22.”

The helmet shows great use with numerous surface scratches and marks. Three stickers reside in the upper crown: ABC size, warning and Diamond Collection. One of the few surviving relics from the Big Unit’s short stay in Houston.
