Late '60s/Early '70s AFL/AFC Don Maynard Game-Worn, Signed NY Jets Suspension Helmet From Don Maynard Collection

This headgear is one of the finest Hall of Fame specimens of its kind ever offered. It was worn by Hall of Fame receiver Don Maynard, initially circa 1969 in the AFL and after reconditioning, worn again circa 1970.

The helmet shell is a Riddell 12-point suspension with a few outer repaintings. It has a lower back shell with multiple "RIDDELL" and "KRALITE" stampings and original Jets striping and side logos. Part of the upper shell has creamed with age and the outer shell wear is superb yet not excessive.

Rounding out the outer shell attributes are a well-worn cream front snubber (indicating 1970 usage) and Don's patented single-bar facemask.

The inner shell sports a well-worn 12-point suspension complete with crown donut. Also present are unique foam jaw pads with protruding ends as designed by Maynard to provide additional protection given that he wore a single bar mask. Maynard's #13 is markered above both earholes.

Don Maynard's own 60's/70's address label still resides within.

The inner wear is equally impressive and consistent with that of the outer shell. No chinstrap you ask? That doesn't mar perfection as Maynard seldom wore one. Overall, the autographed helmet is a perfect "10" and comes with Don's personal letter of authentication. One of the top five NFL helmets to survive the test of time.
