    Circa 1978-80 Larry Anderson Game Worn Pittsburgh Steelers Helmet. Knowledgeable Pittsburgh Steelers game-worn equipment collectors realize how hard it is to obtain anything that was worn by a member of the popular and historic franchise. Rarely do jerseys and helmets pop up at auction, and pieces from the late 1970's Super Bowl seasons are nearly unheard of. Offered here is a magnificent Steelers shell that was worn circa 1978-79 by cornerback and kick returner Larry Anderson. Possibly worn during Super Bowl XIV, as photos indicate proper facemask, clip and chinstrap placement, when compared to the offered helmet. It has desirable 12-point suspension padding on the interior, while the original Wildcat snubber is still intact. The proper number "30" decals are on the back, while the front numerals are missing, which indicates it was worn during the preseason of the following year. Helmet exhibits heavy game wear, and will unquestionably be a solid addition to any high-quality collection. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
