Everyone has the item in their collection that they consider their crown jewel.

Mine is a Packers helmet signed by HOF DE's Willie Davis and Reggie White.  The big thing though is this helmet was OWNED by Reggie White, as I bought it from his estate sale 3-4 years ago.

What's your crown jewel?

Great topic AndresZed thank you for posting. I moved this thread from the New Member Introduction category to the General helmet discussion. Feel free to tell us a bit about yourself in the New Member Section.

I collect game used NFL helmets. Over the years, I have tried to focus on three different types of helmets. Green Bay Packers, Vintage Football Helmets, and helmets of Hall of Famers or what I feel might be future Hall of Famers. Tough for me to pick out one single crown jewel, but here are a couple of my Packer helmets. James Lofton and the great Lynn Dickey.

Very nice. It appears the Rams has one conventional and one U-shaped jawpad.

Any numbers, names, or identifiers in either of the helmets?

Love the Packer helmets you have.  When I was growing up in Green Bay, I used to deliver newspapers to Lynn Dickey/Paul Coffman's condo behind my parents house.  Both guys were super nice.

Collector of Buccaneers game used helmets.  Have 3 really nice pieces all "crown jewels" of them that took me about 20 years to run down, all 3 are the 3 different logos in their history

1) Robb White 1990 helmet, with USA flag decal, white had a QB sack on Joe Montana and Ken O' Brien wearing that helmet
2) Jack Golden - used in 2002 season with Bucs, historic for a few reasons.  Jack Golden was 1st Bucs player to wear the revolution style helmet and this helmet was used while he made the final tackle in Super Bowl XXXVII
3) AJ Francis - new style from 2016, only new style game used bucs helmet I have seen on the market ever, purchased directly from AJ, super nice guy and great twitter follow.  Used throughout the 2016 preseason with the Bucs.

I made a you tube video a while back on my game used Jack Golden helmet as well, with actual images and game footage

Previously, my #1 favorite helmet was my 1995 Alvin Harper game used helmet. Used throughout the 1995 season.... made a video to document him wearing it through the season too, this took a good 15 hours of work to run down the footage and edit together.  Sold the helmet a couple years ago for a price I couldnt refuse, and I am sure the video had a part in that sale as well

Jake - I was going to buy this one a few years back - not sure if it was when you were selling or the original owner was.  Before I could pull the trigger it had sold.  I still had these photos on my original Ipad.

Mine is a game-day helmet worn by the immortal "Little General" quarterback Ron Lancaster (#23) of the Saskatchewan Roughriders.  Very lucky find...

Too many to list but my favorite contemporary helmet is my Oregon Grello DNA from 2007 and 2008 which was Cameron Colvin’s game helmet signed by Jonathan Stewart. Painted by Continental.

Okay Fine! [smile] by request... the 1968 Brunswick/MacGregor Striped Oklahoma helmets... there are only a handful known to still exist. Oklahoma obviously chose the ones without the stripe in 1968. And the rest as they say is history...
