    Description

    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.

    What I most appreciated was how thorough you were when we initially met, how you were conservative in your estimates, not trying to get me to consign by giving false expectations, and then for delivering above and beyond on your commitment to me of a wonderful marketing campaign and a first rate catalog and photos, all of which resulted in a final total price realized that was nicely higher than what you had told me to expect.
