Description: Scarce "Executioner" style football helmet c.1920-30s. Superb exemplar of the rarest and most desirable vintage football helmet style retains a beautiful mahogany colored leather surface. Stamped with the Rawlings Sporting Goods logo on the reverse, the helmet interior remains fully intact with its original padding and head strapping. The elastic chin strapping with leather appointments also remains fully intact. Overall condition is exemplary with light general surface wear and no restoration or replaced components. This extremely scarce style of helmet was briefly utilized by players of the late 1920s and early 1930s in an effort to better protect the face area. The idea and model type, was short lived as the helmet was uncomfortable and hot. The original scarcity accounts for the very short supply in today's marketplace. One of only two examples we have handled in over 17 years: EX+
