    2008-09 Chad Ocho Cinco Johnson Game Worn Cincinnati Bengals Helmet - With Chris Henry Decal on Back. In a tragic NFL story, Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Chris Henry died in 2009 when he was dragged from a moving truck that his fiance was driving after a verbal altercation. It turned out that Henry's strange behavior was a result of repeated hits to the head, and he represented the first case where an active player had died due to CTE.

    Presented here is an intriguing Bengals helmet that was worn by Chad Johnson during the 2008 and 2009 seasons. Complete with the Chris Henry mourning decal on the back, this helmet is confirmed to have been worn in games without the mourning decal, which was added later.

    Originally obtained from the Bengals organization, it exhibits solid use throughout, while it also has Johnson's "85" and flag decals on the back, and its original padding remains intact. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
