Helmet decals Empty Helmet decals

Post  Bill Schaefer on Wed Jul 11, 2012 4:02 pm

The last thread gave me an idea. Just in case we are ever able to go in that particular direction, it would be nice if we could assemble a catalog of the different helmet decals worn. Even things like the NFL Shield, Super Bowl logos, memorials, anniversaries, whatever.

What we'd need is a digital image of the decal, the year (or games) that it was worn, as well as a photo showing that it was actually worn and where its location on the helmet was. The more obscure, the better.

BTW, I've tried to locate it on the threads but can't. Didn't someone post a thread about Browns helmet decals (there's an oxymoron!) as memorials or something? Just can't locate it. Anyone got a better memory than me? I'm thinking it wasn't its own thread but a post that someone threw into a related thread.

(Note: Found photos of them several posts down. - Bill)

Helmet decals Empty 49ers 2007 Bill Walsh & 2011 John Henry Johnson/Joe Perry

Post  Bill Schaefer on Wed Jul 11, 2012 4:08 pm

From DVD83 on 7/11/12...

"Just a suggestion to inlcude these for the respective seasons, as I see the Gene Upshaw decal is included for all teams for week 1 of the 2008 season, it would only be appropriate to also show that the team honored Bill Walsh with a black "BW" decal for the 2007 season and two black "34" and "35" football decals for Joe "the Jet" Perry and John Henry Johnson for the 2011 season:"

Helmet decals Empty List from BD Sullivan...7/6/11

Post  Bill Schaefer on Wed Jul 11, 2012 5:29 pm

From BD...

"Certainly nothing resembling a complete list and doesn't include those already posted:

12/92: New York Jets--"a decal with Dennis Byrd's number 90 overlaying an ichthus, the outline of a fish that is an ancient symbol of Christianity, was affixed to every Jet helmet." This started with the 12/6 game and lasted for the final four weeks.

1/97: Super Bowl XXXI--a facsimile autograph ("Pete") on the NFL shield in memory of former commissioner Pete Rozelle who died seven weeks earlier.

11/98: New York Jets--a black football with the name "Weeb" in white letters in memory of former coach Weeb Ewbank. Lasted for the final five weeks and two playoff games, starting with the 11/29 game. It was supposed to start with the 11/22 game, but the box of decals was misplaced/lost at the Tennessee hotel where the team was staying.

8/00: Kansas City Chiefs--"58" in memory of former player Derrick Thomas, who died during the offseason.

9/01: Starting with the second week, all teams wore a flag decal in memory of 9/11.

12/03: Green Bay Packers--a white #3 (presumably with black background) in memory of former player and HOFer Tony Canadeo. Lasted the final four weeks and two playoff games.

12/03: Cleveland Browns--will wear black-and-white decals with (Otto) Graham's retired No. 14 on the back left side of their helmet for their final two games this season."

9/04: All teams wear "40" decal during the second week in memory of Pat Tillman; Arizona wore it all season.

1/05: Green Bay Packers--a white #92 (presumably with black background) in memory of former player Reggie White. Lasted for the final week and one playoff game.

[8/05: Carolina Panthers-- #51 in memory of Sam Mills worn the entire season]

8/05: San Francisco 49ers--#72 in memory of lineman Thomas Herrion, who died after the second exhibition game in Denver. Wore all year, starting with final two preseason games.

8/07: San Francisco 49ers--"BW" in memory of former coach and HOFer Bill Walsh. Wore all year, including all four preseason games.

8/07: New England Patriots--"91" in memory of Marquise Hill, who died during the offseason.

[1/07: DENVER BRONCOS PLAYERS AT THE PRO BOWL WEARING "27" for Darrent Williams.]

8/07: Denver Broncos--"27" and "29" in memory of Darrent Williams and Damien Nash, who died during the offseason.

11/07: All teams wore "21" in memory of Sean Taylor during the week 13 games (11/29-12/3); the Redskins wore it the remainder of the year (already noted)

12/07: Cleveland Browns--"BW" in memory of former player and HOFer Bill Willis. Wore for the last five games of the season.

8/09: Tennessee Titans--"9" in memory of former player Steve McNair. Wore all season, including all five preseason games.

10/09(and 10/10): All teams wore (among other things) pink Breast Cancer awareness logos during their October games.

10/09 (10/08 sic - Bill) : Cleveland Browns--"GH" in memory of former player and HOFer Gene Hickerson. Wore for the last 10 games of the season.

12/09: Cincinnati Bengals--"15" in memory of Chris Henry. Wore for the final three weeks and one playoff game.

**9/11: San Francisco 49ers--"35" and "34" will be worn in memory of former players and HOFers John Henry Johnson and Joe Perry.

***********
Other items:
*In week two of the 2002 season, ONLY the Ravens were allowed to pay tribute to Johny Unitas (who never actually played with them), but none of their tributes involved a memorial sticker (I think). Other teams could have a moment of silence.

*In 2003, the Cowboys supposedly were going to have a helmet decal in the shape of a star with "TEX" in the middle, in memory of former GM Tex Schramm, who had died in the offseason."

Can we find photos of design and placement?

Helmet decals Empty 2006 DEN Darrent Williams (27) & Damien Nash (29)

Homemade using Broncos font...

Helmet decals 2007_d11

In researching this one, I came across this blurry photo of Champ Bailey at the 2007 Pro Bowl. Darrent Williams passed away in January 2007 just a few days after the Broncos concluded the last game of their season. They did not make the playoffs.

It appears John Lynch is wearing a Darrent Williams decal also - but much clearer.
After looking some more I found this shot of John Lynch and what looks like the Williams patch with 27 also in Broncos font.

Wearing "#51" in honor of Sam Mills. Sam passed in April 2005 and the team wore the decal that season.

However, the decal posted on the internet (below) does not match the small # sign or the block font of the numbers.

Well, using this photo...

I was able to come up with this with the thin blue outline and a thin white outline around that just like the logo at the time.
