Late 1970s Jan Stenerud Chiefs Helmet
Out of stock
The Norwegian native and NCAA ski jumping scholarship student could also boot the football, and did so at a Hall of Fame level for 19 pro seasons. Once worn by Stenerud is this Wilson helmet. The shell (F2101) is from the late 1970s and reveals an All-American recon sticker, dated “1978,” in the upper crown. The fire engine red shell projects the Chiefs’ arrowhead logos on each side. The Dunguard non-lineman mask affixed is not the style used predominantly by Stenerud (who usually wore a single bar). However, it probably replaced a single bar and was used during training camp with the unusual mask. The two holes at the top front, which hold the housing for this mask, can be seen on mid-late ‘70s Stenerud helmet shells. Also, the absence of double-hole drilling for the one-bar, usually worn by Stenerud, is not a factor because the front snap holes are present. Jan often left the chinstrap dangling, and his mask was tilted in a down position. This helmet originates from Stenerud (along with game pants and two pre-season jerseys offered elsewhere in this catalog), so it can be assumed that this helmet was used by the great kicker; it was subject to a mask change in camp, was subsequently retired and taken by the soccer-style kicker. It’s personalized, inscribed and signed by Stenerud on the outer shell.
