    2003 Bruce Smith Game Worn Washington Redskins Helmet.
    Update: After further research, it has been determined that this helmet was most likely worn by Smith in 2002. It does have "2003" clips, but it was typical that teams would receive clips one season early (i.e.. 2003 clips sent to teams during the later part of the 2002 season). Helmet was originally obtained by the Redskins equipment manager at the time.

    The holder of the NFL career record for quarterback sacks with an even 200, Bruce Smith was enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2009, during his first year of eligibility. An 11-time Pro Bowler, and member of the league's 1980's and 1990's All Decade teams, Smith wore this maroon throwback helmet during his final season in the league.

    Exhibiting a nice array of hit marks, stains and scuffs throughout, it has its original chinstrap attached (No. 78 decals on each side). In addition, the proper No. 78 decal is in the interior, while its original padding remains. Clips are dated to 2003. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
