Full Size Game Used Iowa State Football Helmets
1972 MacGregor Clear Shell
These are pretty unique helmets where the decals and paint are on the inside of the helmet and the outside is clear plastic. This one is from 1972. Sometimes the logos were misplaced at the factory as they weren't done by the equipment managers like usual helmets. These are placed a little high, and if you look through old game programs you will occasionally see one like this. I have even seen one photo with the logo upside down! This one does not appear to be game used.
1978 Chris Boskey helmet. Big 8 Defensive Newcomer of the Year!!! Includes awesome award decals.
1983 MVP Helmet
These were given out each week to the "MVP" player to recognize their efforts. However, by the end of the season it was pretty easy for the opponent to key in on the guys in the red helmets and this brief tradition was abandoned for future seasons.
This version of the helmet is a flat red color as opposed to the next version which was a little glittery. It doesn't show in the pictures well, but the paint type is different.
I may not have the exact year right, but at some point around 1999 the helmet paint went from flat to sparkly with a glittery red. Not quite as glittery as the 2003 helmet. If anyone knows when this paint change occurred for sure please let me know.

2007 Throwback Helmets
