Is anyone interested in trading any of these?  I started picking some up on ebay as a result of this thread, and figure it might be worth asking.  Some of what I have to trade is shown below - and a mockup of helmets I need will follow:

Not pictured - but I have both the ball-in-glove Brewers and M-Barley Brewers available for trade.

 

Needing the following:

Postage on one helmet is less than a buck - I've got a perfect box for shipping one at a time.

mini helmets? Cleveland and Pittsburgh have full-sized helmets (it fits on your head!) full of nachos! In Pittsburgh, it had buffalo chicken and all sorts of supreme stuff in it, and everyone around me was aghast at the size and quantity...in Cleveland, they were like "oh, you got the medium. that's cute."

 

I couldn't finish either of them, that's how many nachos were involved. It was glorious.

Since this thread has been revived, I thought I'd follow up my original post to update that I've retroactively bought a couple pucks for NHL games I've been to.

I got the Canucks one as a kid in Vancouver around when I saw my first game so I've had that one for a long time but the Flames and Flyers ones are new. I chose this Flames one because the game I saw in 2010 was the battle of Alberta and the Flames wore their throwback alts. They looked fantastic on the ice against the Oilers. The Flyers game I went to in 2015 was Rod Brind'Amour Hall of Fame night so I thought it was pretty awesome to get a puck that commemorates the exact game I was at. 

 

Now just to find a Rangers one to complete my list so far. I've seen some neat pucks online with images of MSG on them but no luck finding them on eBay. I was awestruck being in MSG for the first time so I want something that captures that feeling rather than just a Rangers logo. 

 

Edit: I also still need to figure something out for NBA (Knicks) and NFL (Eagles, Chiefs, Seahawks, Jets)

I actually have a couple of Devils pucks just like that

I eat my breakfast out of a 2000-ish Tampa Bay Devil Rays or Anaheim Angels helmet cereal bowl almost daily.

 

Also, I found about 50 old MLB and NFL Icee cups at my parents' house last weekend. I took a few home with me.

I also bought a Red Bulls pennant when I went to a game a few years back, along with two tickets to a Knicks-Celtics game and the Big East Championship game from last season

This may be a little off topic, but I've never understood how to cheer at a basketball game

 

You need to visit Central and Eastern Europe to see how you can cheer at a basketball game :)

I like that, I understand that after eating you can keep a helmet and take it to the home. Am I right?

I have full-size versions of the teal-billed Mariners, the black Mets, the maroon Phillies, and the Chief Wahoo Indians. I also have purple-billed full-size versions of the white Diamondbacks and the black Devil Rays, and a red-billed full-sized version of the "CA" Angels. I think I may have a sundae-sized version of the navy Brewers with the green-and-gold M as well.

And Milwaukee. I think there are three different sizes in Milwaukee, frankly.  I'll see if I have each of them in my closet of goodies.

Yup. It's thin plastic like the mini helmets, you're definitely not using this to play - but it could definitely be used for a hat if you wanted. I use mine for popcorn bowls now, they're ideally-sized for it.

Toronto needs to have the fullsized helmet nachos.... I'd kill for those. Nachos are my go-to food for baseball.... and almost any sport. It's a comfort food for me.

Yankee Stadium also has helmet nachos.  

 

Though I'm pretty sure that the helmet uses the wrong logo - print, not helmet.

I love that Petco Park had the brown ice cream helmet. I specifically asked for one of those over the navy ones since the Padres were wearing their brown and yellow alternates for the game I went to. 

    A few teams are starting to come out with different versions of the ice cream helmet. Braves have a red and blue version, Dodgers started having a pink helmet, Padres blue and brown, ect.  Good luck on the collection.  Many minor leagues have then but not all. They aren't even based on size.  Las Vegas, Triple A doesn't do them but Eugene short season A has them.  When I went to the Asheville Tourists game, the ice cream lady said, "why would we sell those, we are Braves fans", which is single A team for the rockies.  You can even find some colleges having them. For instance I have one from USC, but they only had it one day as a promotion.  I started collection them when I started taking more road trips to stadiums and wanted to collect something other than my ticket (which all end up in a book).  My friend collected bobble heads but at one point they got expensive and hard to display unless you have a collectors room, but who wants to display teams you hate just because you went there?  Same thing with getting a t-shirt.  The helmets are awesome because they are cheap, stackable, and you get ice cream!  I don't have a photo of the 30 plus helmets I've earned, with sit ups after the ice cream, but I stack mine in order of what I thought of the stadium or experiences I had there.  Will make a shadow box when I finish my stadium tour.

As for the rest of the sports, I think the only thing you'll find that are universal are soda cups.  Most stadiums I have found carry them, and will also change them if you go to a special game like an All Star Game or World Series.  I just got one from the World Baseball Classic Final, but they didn't make their own ice cream helmet just had the Dodgers.  

 

As a random note... when you make it to Miller Park in Milwaukee, you will not find an ice cream helmet nor will they make an exception if you try to ask to put in ice cream into their helmets.  They fill them with Cheese Curds. When in Rome I guess...

Happy to hear more teams are getting alternate ones. That puts a fun little extra spin on it. 

 

Cheese curds hey? Interesting. Well at least I know to expect it now!
