Hi guys there is a Brian Blades seahawks helmet on ebay that has been altered to look more convincingly like it belongs to Blades. This helmet is up for auction and has about 24 hours left. The original helmet sold about a month ago by ebay user broker4dtc and was purchased by ebay user teddyfnballgame. The original auction only had one bid and that winner has the same exact number of feedback as teddyfnballgame, who happens to be auctioning this helmet now.

When this helmet originally sold, it did not have any numbers and likely no dyno tape on it. I contacted broker4dtc and he told me that this helmet did not originally have any numbers on it. Now this helmet has dyno tape on both sides of the helmet and also blades jersey number 89 written in multiple areas. We cannot see from the original seller's photos whether this helmet had dyno tape or on the inside but we can see that the back padding did not have "89" written on it. I will post links to both auctions as well as photos below.

teddyfnballgame's new auction: https://www.ebay.com/itm/BRIAN-BLADE...53.m1438.l2649

I contacted teddyfnballgame two days ago and he has not responded. The original seller said that he got this helmet from a former Seahawks equipment manager who was dating his sister. He was also said that this helmet was worn during the 1991 preseason so this helmet could have been worn by Blades during the preseason but I didn't feel comfortable enough with it to bid on the original auction. It could have been worn by Brian Blades but the new seller is trying to pass this off as definitively belonging to Blades.
