Huddlers, I am meeting someone this weekend to potentially buy a couple of panther helmets. They may or may not be game worn helmets. One is in a case, one is not (I don't think they are signed). He knows nothing about them (long story)....
What price range should I pick these up for? I don't want to overpay, and would like to get it for a deal.

Helmet #1

Helmet #2

Thanks in advance. Pie and Rep as always!

Are those screws rusted in that first pic? Idk as far as price. Looks like they go anywhere from 25 (bid) to 80 bucks (buy it now) So depending on the actual quality when you see em I'd go somewhere in between. Be a nice addition to a collection though.

I wish full size helmets went that cheap.

FULL SIZE Replica helmets you can get around $100 delivered

Authentic $200-350 RANGE

Game worn depending on player $200-$1000

What if it is unknown which player wore it?

Also, how about the plastic case that helmet is in? Is that case worth $$$ also?

Psych!!! Shipping, Whoops was just looking in a hurry. I was looking at replicas. I thought that seemed low when I was typing it. Thank you for clearing that up.

I would think if it were game worn there would be a trace of the number inside somewhere. Sharpie or something. Thats just from personally playing. Idk collectibles wise.

They're worth nothing, and what's up with the messed up sticker on the first one?

LOL the mini helmets cost $25, good luck on the purchase

the display cases cost around $40

If its a game worn helmet it should have a players jersey # in it but not always

The 1st pic of the helmet scares me with the sticker peeling, I have a UNC Full size helmet Peppers auto and it's a replica and the sticker is peeling

Of the two, the first one would have the best chance of being a game worn helmet. Looking at the facemask, it looks like a helmet from one of the trench players. Given how big those guys are, check to see the size of the helmet. I doubt it would be a game worn helmet if it is a smaller than a large/xlarge.

The mini helmet would be about $25 new, that case is definitely not a $40 like Jason said, $20-25 max

The other helmet is definitely not just a replica as it wouldn't have ever been sold with that facemask, whether its practice or game used, or even just a team issued helmet but not used makes a huge difference

If just issued and not used, I'd put it around $175-200

If used in practice, I'd to $250ish

If game used, $300-500, really depends on whose it was and if there is any documentation and/or significant signs of being used/beat up in games
