Hi,

I want to start adding some football helmets to my man room.

Whilst I would like to ideally have the real thing, if I hope to eventually collect quite a few of them I am gonna have to purchase the cheaper replica ones.

I saw these and wondered if any of you have any experience of them or any others you may be aware of.

Do they still look good etc?

Thanks

I think they would look just fine. You aren't going to be wearing them, only for display. I say go for it. The pricing you quoted is a bit below half of what you can get the real thing for.

I have all of the authentic helmets that I have collected over the years (see my sig link). What really is bad is when the teams (Atlanta, San Diego) make helmet changes....

Yes, I bet that can be annoying. Still, I guess it just means even MORE toys to collect LOL


Gonna order a couple today. Will update this thread with my opinions.

Cheers guys

The shell is pretty close to the same but the inside looks really cheap compared to the real deal.

Charlie,

If you can't get a response from your source, check out the link below where I got mine. I think they are a little more expensive but I have had years of great service from them. Good luck.

And good service is worth paying extra for. Thank you very much for the link

Do you have the authentic or replica helmets?
