Joe Gibbs, Myself and only 11 others
 
My friend STU gave me a great Christmas gift. His niece's husband as I have said is the head of maintanence [or whatever] at FED/EX Field. That how STU gets the box seats and player parking passes and tons more.

He gave me a Pewter Redskins helmet which is 1 of 13 made.

Here's the story:
When Joe Gibbs came to Washington again last year his son Cory had 13 Redskins helmets designed and created for his Dad to be able to give one a month to "Redskins Employee of the Month" or something like that. Joe Gibbs got one and they started giving them out. One lady landed a HUGE contract for the Redskins so they gave her a CAR! Thus leaving this helmet unused at the end of the year. It went to like a prize/memorabilia room closet place.

At the end of this year they gave THAT helmet and many other things to STU's niece's husband, who gave that to STU who gave it to me.

It is about 3" long and tall and came in a Burgundy Seude bag. There is no markings on the helmet anywhere.

I did look online and Riddel makes a pewter helmet but it has chinstraps and pads on the inside. Also that helmet has stripes across the top whereas mine does not.

I believe this helmet is what I am told it is.

Check it out!

That is AWESOME! Even if it's not what they say, that is a nice piece.
