Another awesome antique sports collectible from the often imitated but never duplicatedHAMMER SPORTS RELICSPlease visit our Ebay Store for a link to our web site! Up on the auction block is an amazing circa 1915 Jim Thorpe style leather head harness football helmet! As the photos show, the helmet has some gridiron battle scars, an old stitching repair on the left ear pad, and a couple of broken stitches but no major damage (see all photos)! The leather is soft and supple but still very strong! It has a nice shine and an awesome look! It has it's 100% original worn patina. No dyes, colored polishes, or coloring of any kind used. Both of the front inner elastic straps are still present and still firmly attached. The wool interior of the helmet is all present. It has some wear and a little bit of grim but overall condition is good. There are no visible markings on the helmet. This model of helmet was made by Spalding, Reach, and others. It was a very popular style helmet at the time. We included a scan (for reference only) of an early photo of Jim Thorpe wearing the same model helmet. We would guess the size to be a 7 to 71/8. The mannequin display head will be shipped along with the helmet.
