Dates used:  1957- 66
Inside of helmet:  Foam padding, which
is missing
Manufacturer:  Bobbie Enterprises
Logo:  real sticker
Thoughts:  One of the more difficult
helmets to find. Don't know how often they were available, but they were given out at a Reds game August 6, 1961.

Thoughts:  I've only ever seen three of these on Ebay and I have two.  The
inside of the helmet has one of the
rarest foam inserts I have ever seen.  I
don't know if the Reds ever wore a
helmet like this, I believe it has to be
from the 1960's, and I like to classify it
as a very tough find.

Thoughts:  This helmet stayed with the
Reds forever an epitomized the Big
Red Machine of the 1970's.  Now, I'm
not really for sure when the Reds
changed the letter "C" logo on their
helmet so your guess is as good as
mine.

Thoughts:  If you compare this "C" to
the helmets above you will notice the
difference.  Eric Davis, where have you
gone?

Thoughts:  A change of uniforms with
a little bit of black added in.  Sean
Casey comes to my mind in this helmet.

Thoughts:  It looks as though Ken
Griffey Jr. will finish his career in this
helmet.  To bad that health problems
have taken away from his game.

Thoughts:  Okay, what's up in this photo?  Those guys are wearing an all white helmet so I ask, did they actually wear one like this during a game?  I actually just took a helmet like the one above and with a lot of elbow grease and a bottle of Oops!, I removed the red bill paint job.  Not bad, huh?
