What is a Clear Shell? Jack

Jack -
The shell is clear and the logos (decals) and paint is done from the inside. They were popular in the 60's through 80's. The idea was that since the decals and logos were under the shell the helmet would never need to be repainted or have the logos replaced. Most every helmet company has offered a clear shell helmet at one time or another including: Riddell, Wilson, Rawlings, MacGregor, Kelley, Nokona, Spalding, Marietta, MaxPro, and others. One of the issues of a clear shell helmet was that over time they got a bit brittle and cracked easily. On the above helmet, you can see the logo "L" under the rivets of the padding in the first and third photos. That is one way to easily tell a clear shell helmet. Occasionally however, teams would apply the logo decals and striping on the exterior of a clear shell helmet. The clear shell helmets are getting harder to find as most of them were destroyed when they were taken out of service, and are very popular with some helmet collectors.
