    Description

    1966-68 Jim Bakken Game Worn St. Louis Cardinals Helmet. Jim kicked for the Cardinals from 1962-78, earning four Pro-Bowl berths and a spot as a kicker on both the NFL's 1960's and 1970's All-Decade Teams.

    Produced by Riddell, this model TK2 sports a white exterior shell with the three-piece Cardinals logo sticker applied to both sides and "Riddell" and "Kra-Lite" boldly stamped on the back. The facemask is a single bar conversion from a Riddell BD-9, a common practice at the time for NFL equipment staff. Measuring to a size of 6 7/8, the interior features Bakken's name and number in vintage black marker next to the right ear hole, twelve-point suspension webbing, crown pad, jaw pads, leather headband, front bumper, and 1967 reconditioning stamp. Also, the back of the helmet contains remnants of where two strips of tape were once placed horizontally, probably during training camp. All components of this exemplar are original and it exhibits outstanding game use for a kicker. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
