Dates used:  1960- 65
Inside of helmet:  Foam padding, which
is missing

Thoughts:  One of the more difficult
helmets to find.  I know the picture at right doesn't have an orange bill, but these old helmet photos are hard to find.  
Dates used:  1964
Inside of helmet:  Foam padding, which
is missing
Manufacturer:  Bobbie Enterprises
Logo:  real sticker
Thoughts:  This was part of the home uniform during the '64 season.  This helmet is very rare. 

 
Dates used:  1966 - 74
Inside of helmet:  Foam padding

Thoughts:  Another variation of the two
helmets shown below.

Thoughts:  When I see this helmet
there can only be one name that comes
to mind . . . Brooks Robinson.

Manufacturer:  Sports Product Corp., A

all the way, but don't forget the quiet
one . . . Eddie Murray.

Another duck-billed helmet.
 
 
Dates used:  1975- 1998   
Inside of helmet:  Grey Adjustrap  
Manufacturer:  Fotoball
Logo:  screen printed
Thoughts:  Another of the Retro helmets from Fotoball put out in 2003.  Not too bad, but could be better. 
 
Dates used:  Never, as far as I know, but the Orioles did wear a cap like this in the 1975-76 season.
Thoughts:  
This is one of my "What If" helmets that I made.  I used one of the above helmets and just changed the color scheme.  (If anybody comes across a picture of these guys wearing this hat please let me know.) 
Dates used:  1989 - 97

Logo:  screen printed
Thoughts:  A more politically correct
bird was put in place of this one.  Do
you remember the 50 homers hit by
Brady Anderson?  Where have you
gone Brady?

Subsidiary of Laich
Logo:  screen printed
Thoughts:  Come to find out this
helmet was only used for one year.  If
you look really close at the bird's head
and compare it to the helmet below
you'll see a slight variation in the
design.  It's kind of hard to notice on
this website.
 
Dates used:  1999 - present
Inside of helmet:  Adjustrap

Logo:  screen printed
Thoughts:  This is the current bird, but the logo on this helmet is a lot bigger than the one below.
Dates used:  1999 - present
Inside of helmet:  Adjustrap  
Manufacturer:  Sports Product Corp., A
Subsidiary of Laich
Logo:  screen printed
Thoughts:  This is the current bird, but the logo on this helmet is really, really small.  Check out the helmet above.

Inside of helmet:  Adjustrap  
Manufacturer:  Sports Product Corp., A
Subsidiary of Laich
Logo:  screen printed
Thoughts:  This helmet has never been
worn by the Orioles.   If you look really close at the bird's head and compare it to the helmet below you'll see a slight variation in the design.  It's kind of hard to notice on this website.

Dates used:  2011
Inside of helmet:  White Adjustrap  
Manufacturer:  None
