Early ’90s Barry Bonds Game-Used, Signed Pirates Helmet w/Dobbins, Esken LOA

Out of stock

SKU: 38148 Category:


Barry Bonds first began to built himself into baseball’s best while with the Pittsburgh Pirates. Some may label Mr. Bonds as cantankerous, but there is no doubting his ability. This size “7 1/4” Pirates helmet was manufactured in March of 1990 and thus ready for use in the ’90 campaign. Authentication is secured with a full Dick Dobbins letter, and the signature comes with a letter of authenticity from Jeff Kranz. Dobbins was the man who helped market the San Francisco Giants gear in the late ’80s and early ’90s. According to Dobbins’ LOA, the helmet features all of the correct markings for helmets used by the Pirates. Another interesting piece of knowledge shared by Dobbins’ letter is that it notes that there are light pine tar marks from a left hand, the hand which Bonds would adjust a helmet with. Esteemed Pittsburgh Pirates authenticator Denny Esken has also given this helmet his full endorsement. A 100% Authentic Esken letter will be forwarded to the winning bidder as well. This is a significant year in Bonds’ historic career as he won his first of seven MVPs in ’90. A number of surface scratches are evident on the black shell. Bonds signed (“9”) the front bill in silver paint pen. The back features a “24” decal, “MLB” sticker and “ABC” identifier. This representation was worn by Bonds when he was first becoming a national story.
