    1960's Milwaukee Braves Game Worn Batting Helmet. This Milwaukee Braves fiberglass helmet was one of the earliest attempts of headgear. While serving as a batboy for the Braves Ron Cardo rescued this "American Baseball Cap" helmet from the trash. "28" is written on the ABC sticker. "39" and "28" are written on the underside. "7 1/4" was scribed on both sides, reverse and subsequently darkened in. A minor crack spelled the end of the line. The inner cushion is now missing. For the record, Tommie Aaron wore #28 for the Braves in the early '60's so he might have worn the helmet. Letter of provenance from Ron Cardo (former Milwaukee County Stadium Batboy). LOA from Heritage Auctions.
