1953 Baltimore Colts Cross Helmet

Post  Frizz's All Helmets on Fri Apr 20, 2012 1:38 pm

Is there any pictures of the 1953 Baltimore Colts Cross Helmet available. Trying to collect all mini helmets and have not found any evidence of this helmet. I don't want to go through the trouble of making this helmet and it is false.

It was worn for Baltimore's (version 2.0) first inaugural game on 9/27/53 when they hosted the Bears during Week 1. After this game the cross stripes were removed for the following 7 weeks that they wore white helmets. Additionally, on 4 occasions during the season, Baltimore wore blue helmets instead of the white ones. Tim uncovered this on one of his research trips to the Library of Congress but was unable to take with him a copy of the photographic evidence.

Very soon we will be adding the WWWW sections to the site. ("Who Wore What When?") It will be in spreadsheet format and will indicate which uniforms were worn for which games.

* Edited - My bad. Below the thumbnail of the 1953 Colts you will see "Week-by-week." Clicking this will take you to the WWWW for that season. This function works for any season from 1950 forward to 2011.

Thanks Bill for the Picture and clarification. I can now proceed with the mini helmet. Love this site. And it's help with all the different helmets through the years. I'm trying to collect every helmet excluding Leather helmets for every team. Pretty close to being done.
