Frequently Asked Questions



Are your items brand new?

Yes, we only sell brand new helmets manufactured by either Riddell or Schutt.


Is this the same helmet I see selling other places for much more?

Yes! We have specialized in selling Riddell and Schutt football helmets since 2006 and have incredible relationships with our suppliers. As a smaller company, we also have much lower operating costs. What does all this mean? HUGE savings for YOU!  

How do I know if an item is in stock?

Our inventory software updates continually to ensure you know exactly how many items are in stock and ready to ship NOW.  You can see how many are in stock right below the "Add to Cart" button.  Out of stock items can not be added to your cart. 

If an item is out of stock, can you notify me when more come in? 

Yes, if an item is out of stock a green "Notify Me When Available" button will show up on the listing.  If you click this button and supply your email address, you will be notified immediately when more come in. 

Can I order an item that is out of stock? 

Yes, we can place your order to be shipped as soon as more come in.  This can be very helpful with high-demand items that tend to sell out quickly. Please contact us if you are interested in ordering an out of stock item. 

What if I can't find the item I am looking for? 

If you don't see the item you are looking for, please contact us as we can usually get any helmet currently made.   

What is the difference between a Replica and Authentic helmet?

The main difference is the interior padding.  Authentic helmets have full interior padding, while replica helmets have cosmetic or "fake" padding for lack of a better word. All collectible helmets are size large except for NFL replicas which are slightly smaller.  Replica helmets are much easier on the wallet, but authentic helmets tend to have a few more extras such as team name on back bumper or front nameplate.  Both are high quality and great for displaying so it is just a personal preference. 

Can I wear this helmet?

We sell these helmets as collectibles and not as safety equipment so they are only for display.  We are aware that many people do wear them for costume purposes, but they should not be used for competitive play or protection.  Please be aware that all NCAA helmets include either a safety shield or safety bar to prevent wearing.
