From the days of archaic conditions, brave warriors took to the gridiron with minimal padding, no facemasks and leather helmets as their only “protection.” These (9) vintage head gear examples are a collective reminder of the game’s tough origins, The thick leather accessories feature wool interior padding throughout and crown suspensions in (7) of the helmets. Manufacturers (where identified) include GoldSmith, Lowe & Campbell, (3) Reach and Spalding. Definitive game use is evident throughout!
