I don't know if you can call this a font or a typeface but thse letter styles inside football-like ovals used to be a popular helmet decals in the 1960s and 70s:

Does anyone know if there is a name for these, where I might be able to get some for graphic use, anything?

Thanks.

I do not know if it is actually a type face or what not but I have been able to recreate the effect by using envelope tools on Corel Draw and Serif Draw, and then adding a oval or football shape later. I hope that helps

Adrianb: thanks for that.

If you look closely at the helmet with the green P, the left and right ends of the decal have little indentions that give them more of a football shape.

Go to sportdecals.com and request a free catalog. They make all types of decals, numbers and award stickers for helmets. The full alphabet is shown in the style you want. I think it's black and white but should scan OK. No charge for the catalog, which you can order on line, and they're really nice people. :rolleyes:
