Default Dan Marino GAME WORN USED helmet

I say this helmet on Jim Yackel's website. I know there are a lot of nice things said regarding his items on this website. Would like your opinions on this Marino gamer before I consider purchasing it:

http://www.jimyackel.com/13Marino03-09JG.JPG

#13 DAN MARINO, Riddell VSR-4 size 7 1/4--7 3/4, from 1995. The "13" identifier is affixed to the back in seperate numerals and written inside above the right ear hole. DOLPHINS cervical pad decal. The velco communications gear fasteners remain intact. Light but noticeable game-use is evidenced through scattered minor scuffing on the shell, plus light perspiration staining on the interior padding. A very nice piece worn by the class of 2005 Hall of Famer.


Thank you.

I don't know too much about helmets, but I have purchased a few jerseys from Jim in the past and was satisfied each time. He has a great rep in the hobby though and I would tend to trust him.

With that said, people make mistakes when authenticating. I know if I was in the market for a game worn helmet, especially one in that price range, I would contact aeneas (Robert). The information regarding NFL helmets that he has shared with the forum is incredible. If ever there was an expert on NFL lids, it's him. Best of luck!!

Thank you.
See Robert's (aeneas01) comments about Yackel's Marino below (third post from the bottom):

You'd have to ask Robert what problems he's referring to exactly but if he's not comfortable with it, I wouldn't touch it.

There is a current listing on Ebay for a game used Dan Marino helmet. Here is the link:

http://cgi.ebay.com/Dan-Marino-1986-...p3286. c0.m14

If I were you however, I would search postings on this gameuseduniverse site to see if Aeneas01 has ever analyzed the Marino helmet current for sale on Ebay. Usually Aeneas01 would know if this on is legit or not.

Well, here is some info I dug up from previous posts by Aeneas01. Looks like the helmet for sale on Ebay has previously been analyzed, and it may not be a real Marino gamer. Here is the link:

Robert was looking for a photo of Marino wearing a helmet with a single clip. I think other than that, he thought the helmet was good. Here are some photos that back up the helmet. All the photos are from 1987 and the DOLPHINS front bumper match up. Note the single facemask clip. The game photo from Getty Images is from early 1987 versus the Buffalo Bills.
