I'd be surprised if they didn't have the regular gold helmet, because that's still their primary.

If nothing there, try sparkys stadium shop.

Never thought I would see a mini-helmet topic on here. This is awesome.

Hey Bucfan or anyone else, I'd really like to get one of those yellow Arizona state pitchfork riddell speed minis. I can't find one anywhere, I think riddell may have discontinued it. Of course they make every other variety. Anyone know where I can find one? TIA

So we're clear, we're talking about this?

Yep, that's the one but the speed mini version is the one I'm looking for. I'm gonna take a look at those sites, thanks Bucfan.

No luck on either of those sites, I might try calling cactussports to see if they have it in stock but not pictured on their site.

I got mine at the ASU bookstore my first semester on campus, so you may wanna call them, too.

Also, Google it or check on Amazon.

If you can't find one this would actually be a fairly simple (and inexpensive) DIY job.

Be sure to indicate what player number you need. From the 2013 photos I've been able to find the matte yellow helmets did not have back bumper decals, and seem to have used a "PT 42" front bumper for some games but not others.

Do any of you know where to find the vinyl helmet stripes scaled for a mini helmet? I've got a couple of concept helmets I'd like to do but sure not where where I can get the center stripes from in the proper size.

Note that I have not done business with this seller, so I can't vouch for them.

Thank you! I've been on that site for hours and somehow missed those.

The work collection.

I, of course, love the old Seahawks helmets. Is the one on the end for New Jersey?

Me too! I wish the team would have gone with the silver domes back in '02. Would have broken up the monochrome look quite well.

The "NJ" helmet is one I purchased/customized a while ago for an old fantasy football team.

I'm trying to have a Pocket Pro representation of every helmet worn in the NFL since 1960, including one-off preseason models and alternates. Many or even most have to be custom made. There have been three styles of Pocket Pros produced: two-bar, traditional, and Revolution. I've tried to create each one in the style that is appropriate for the era or eras in which it was worn, somewhat arbitrarily using the two-bar model for 1960-79, the traditional model for 1980-2002, and the Revolution style for 2003 to present.

The ones facing forward in the photos are shells for the ones I have yet to complete. The display unit is something I made using craft boards purchased at Lowes. Please overlook the poor lighting in the photos, as the lighting in the room isn't great...

Those are sweet Jim, my collection is very similar but I chose not to include the one offs......I'll try and get some pics tomorrow......

Hey coogr thanks for the advice on the Arizona State do it yourself. Have you ordered from scorehere before? I have used them for minis before but not for custom jobs. My main question is does the shell come with a box or by itself? I don't open any of my minis and display them in the box so that would be important for me, tia.

The blank shells from scorehere.com do not come with boxes. If that's a deal breaker just sign up for a free account and get an LSU or Green Bay helmet (with box) for only $17.99.

Coogrfan - Does buying an already complete helmet and removing the decals leave any residue where the logos were? If so any tips for removing without damaging the finish?

Also that's a hell of a pocket pro collection Jungle Jim. Do you print the logos yourself or outsource it?

I've printed them all myself. I repeatedly print them on plain paper (in black and white) until the size is perfect (or close), then print to water slide decal paper when I've got it like I want it. I usually print a lot more than I think I'll need in anticipation of miscuts and other mistakes.

Anyone know a good place to get single order mini helmet decals? I'm talking the material that is used on actual store-bought mini helmets. I used to do my own at the print shop I worked at on vinyl, but the vinyl never felt quite right.
