Hello everyone!

Still trying to get comfy here, but wanted to introduce myself. Many of you may know me as “muralist46” on ebay where I’m sure I’ve bought, sold, and traded with many of you guys. Thought I’d try a new outlet!

In a nutshell, I have about 50 helmets in my personal collection with about 25% being true gamers or team issues. I have one for each NFL team - my favorite player from each, so to speak - as well as several extra Steelers and Chicago teams.

My “wheelhouse” is helmets from the 70s to mid 80s, with BIKEs being my favorite.
Still trying to figure this out, but will send out some more pics. (You may notice they are set up by divisions, updated through last night’s Cowboys / Cardinals Monday-nighter.)

Here they come....

Some are gamers, most are not. The ones that are not are as close to originals as possible; year, model, size, etc.

Sweet collection.  Love the concept of recreating the helmet "look" of specific players, rather than just a generic helmet for a given team.

So how did you hang those?  Hook in the ear hole, mounted into wall studs?  Could you take a pic of and post what your hangers look like?

Thanks so much!

Basically it’s a wall anchor, a 2” screw, and a facemask clip washer. Here’s a few pics....

I like that idea.  I used 2" screw hooks, and they're really too much for what's needed and sometimes tough to get the right balance and tilt.  I think your screw/loose washer would work much better.
