"The Favre" Project Begins!

This is the yellow Riddell helmet that I got through eBay -- all the way from Wyoming. It is one of my better purchases as it is nearly perfect as far as wear is concerned. I attached the gray mask to show the correct Brett Favre style face mask. When I am finished, I will have changed over to the same mask but in a dark green.

Check out the shine emanating from this beauty! And that is not just a cover paint job, the whole shell is impregnated yellow. As it stands right now, it would be a good representation of the Packers 1994 "throwback" helmet that the team wore several times that year -- the 1937 style uniform also featured a yellow yoked blue jersey, gold numerals, and flat gold pants.

If you bought the Sports Illustrated special edition saluting Brett's retirement, there is a picture of that uniform in the issue.
