Skins helmet
 
hey i'm kinda browsing around ebay and craigslist for some authentic redskisn helmets, some autographed etc.. not sure what to look for in terms of authenticity of helmets, but im looking at this [url=http://cgi.ebay.com/WASHINGTON-REDSKINS-TEAM-SIGNED-FULL-SIZE-F-S-HELMET_W0QQitemZ130265910276QQihZ003QQcategoryZ27276QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem#ebayphotohosting]WASHINGTON REDSKINS TEAM SIGNED FULL SIZE F/S HELMET - eBay (item 130265910276 end time Nov-02-08 16:50:55 PST)[/url]

what do u guys think? is it worth it, do u think the signatures are real and how about the price, so far all the signatures i have collected are from the actuall palyer so i've never dealt with ebay items.... any help or info is greatly apreciated.

I can't tell how bit it is. Is it really full size? Ask the seller to take a picture of the helmet with something that would give you perspective on how big it is next to it (i.e. 1 gallon milk container). As for the authenticity of the signatures, who knows? You'll just have to take their word for it or take it to someone knowledgeable in the field.

If you can get the seller to take close up pictures of Betts, Rogers, Griffin, Moss, and Cooley signatures on the helmet I can verify for you (to some degree) based a signed ball I have.

1) It looks horrible; 2) He says he got the signatures "in person" which means a COA will likely be something he prints out on his computer; 3) It is a full size REPLICA helmet, which is basically a full size helmet that is the same quality as the replica mini helmets. It is not an authentic helmet. Here are some sellers you should check out:

[URL="http://myworld.ebay.com/ballpark_sports&ssPageName=STRK:MEFSX:SELLERID"]ballpark_sports[/URL] : for decent prices on helmets, unsigned.

[url=http://www.realstuffsports.com/]Real Stuff Sports Serving Collectors Since 1980[/url] : helmets, again not the best prices in the world but some interesting things.

[URL="http://myworld.ebay.com/leader_in_sports&ssPageName=STRK:MEFSX:SELLERID"]leader_in_sports[/URL] : they do local signings and have some merchandise on eBay.

[url=http://www.radtkesports.com/]Autographed Memorabilia - Radtke Sports[/url] : not the best prices but nice stuff.

Also check out local autograph shows. [url=http://www.psgamegear.com]Welcome Page[/url] ; [url=http://www.csashows.com]Collectors' Showcase of America[/url] ; among others.

Look for COAs from Steiner, Mounted Memories, Leader in Sports, PS Game Gear, PSA/DNA, James Spence (JSA). Avoid GAI and others less reputable COAs. Any seller should be able to tell you where and when the signing too place and you can verify at [url=http://www.signingshotline.com/]Autograph Signings - SigningsHotline.com[/url].

I can make out the Cooley signature, and it looks like the one he signed for me in person. I mean, obviously if it was fake, they'd make it look like that too, but that looks legit (Cooleys). I'm interested to see what kind of helmet that is though, it doenst look like a real one.

Thats a replica helmet. Look at the white sticker on the back that tells you not to wear it for protection.

I would agree that it looks a little trashy. This is one of those cases where more is not better.

Who cares really. If you're going for the autographs and not planning on running around the house headbutting walls I say go for it. I've got a replica helmet like that if you want some close ups of the inside or something else.

Re: Skins helmet
 
yea i wrote the guy, he hasn't answer yet, but i do want to buy a few authentic helmets to display in my room and maybe eventually get some signed, I've been searching around for a while now for sean taylor autographed stuff, they had a live auction about 2 weeks ago on a game worn jersey by sean, looked awsome had the grass stains on it, bid started @ 500 i got in but couldn't go much higher than 700, it ended up selling at about 1500 i believe, but its amazing how some people try to cash in on his death more like disgusting, this one guy on craigslist was selling the damn #21 towel that's on the skins website for 3$, f**ker was selling it for 50$ saying they go for about 300 on ebay, are you kidding me?? but yea thanks for the help guys, I think I'm gonna buy a couple of the site SC Skins Fan provided and try to get them signed myself.
p.s. i met JC @ dulles town center about a month ago, he was doing a private signing for PSgameGear store, i got his autograph,, maaan the guy is really tall, I was like hey jason I'm andre, - hey dre dont worry I won't bite... lol i'm thinking to myself wtf I'm 26 yrs old grown man and this dude is making me feel like I'm in kindergarten, anyways I did talk to the manager there and he said they have a lot of players who come in there every week and signings, ex. apparently chris cooley is in there about 3 times a week doing signings, but the store number is 703-433-2204, guy said if you call and ask if any of the skins are coming in that week they will let you know who's coming in and when, i thought that was pretty cool for autograph enthusiasts like me
