    Late 1950's Bobby Lackey Game Worn Texas Longhorns Helmet. Probably most famous for being pictured on the cover of "Sports Illustrated" in 1959, and for kicking the game-winning field goal against Texas A&M during UT's Southwest Conference championship season in '59, Bobby Lackey wore this stunning Longhorns shell during the late 1950's. Helmet shows nice use, with a slight crack under the mask on left side where it fastens in the shell, this 12-point suspension padding variety has the proper "[size] 7 1/4" on the webbing. Grey front snubber remains intact, while it presents the proper "22" orange numerals on each side. A perfect piece to display next to his famed SI cover, this piece will aid in ensuring that your collection will be the envy to all Horns football fans. LOA from Heritage Auction Galleries.
