    Description

    Circa 1950 New York Yankees Game Used Batting Helmet - Early Style. Baseball equipment has evolved through the years. Out of necessity, batting helmets entered into the fray in the late '40's and early '50's. From the first true attempt at baseball headgear is this interesting Yankees game used helmet. A wool flocked interlocking "NY" is featured on front and partially disengaged, but intact. A crack on the side probably spelled the end of the line. Applied inside is an "American Baseball Cap" sticker, and "3" appears to be written on the inner cushion. The helmet originated from the estate of Randy Gumpert. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
