Inside of helmet:  Foam padding, which
is missing

Logo:  real sticker
Thoughts:  Not an easy helmet to find.  
The Old Milwaukee Braves and you
have got to think of a very young Hank
Aaron when you see this helmet.

Thoughts:  Obviously this is a real
helmet as compared to the in question
one below.  Again, I'm not for sure if the
Milwaukee Braves ever wore a solid
color helmet.

Thoughts:  This is one of my mystery
helmets.  I'm not for sure if this is an
older Milwaukee Braves helmet or not.  
The gentlemen I bought it from had
nothing but late 60's and early 70's
helmets and claimed it was a
Milwaukee helmet.  If I had to guess, I
would say that it isn't.
 
 
Dates used:  1966 - 71
Inside of helmet:  Foam padding, which is missing
Manufacturer:  None listed
Thoughts:  Another strange helmet.  This one has a safety sticker in it and that is it.  There are no identifying features as for manufacturer.  A great find!

Thoughts:  Ya, Hank Aaron popped a
few homers in this helmet.  I believe
this helmet was the part of their away
uniforms.

homer in this helmet in 1974.

Thoughts:  Another of the Fotoball retro helmets that they put out.

Inside of helmet:  Adjustrap
Manufacturer:  No name
Logo:  real sticker
Thoughts:  One of those "duck bill"
helmets that I mention throughout this
website.  Come to find out, this helmet was sold at Fulton County Stadium in '74 along with the helmet above. 
 
Dates used:  1982 - 86
Inside of helmet:  Adjustrap
Manufacturer:  U.S. Cap Company
Logo:  screen sticker
Thoughts:  Another "duck bill" helmet,
but the strange thing about this helmet
is that this company got it right for
once.  The Braves did have a hat that
had a red outline around the "A" logo.  
I'm still trying to figure out the years
this lasted.

Thoughts:  Ahhhh!  Dale Murphy and
Bob Horner are the first to come to
mind.  Not for sure of the exact time
frame, but those nasty powder blue
uniforms go with this helmet.

Thoughts:  I always liked watching
sweet swing David Justice, but you
can't rule out some guy named
Chipper Jones.

Thoughts:  I don't think the Braves have ever worn this helmet.  It is also the only one I have ever found.  It does have a Turner Field $10.00 sticker on the inside so it wasn't a promotional, so who knows?

Just a promotional helmet and I'm going to guess it's from the 1980's.
