Real Stuff Sports is Real Fast

I decided to get the 1962 Dallas Texans full size RK Helmet.

I couldn't decide whether to do a Bob Lilly TCU helmet or go with one that Len Dawson wore, but decided on the Texans helmet.

It can be difficult to find a reliable dealer to buy helmets and such from so I was a bit nervous when Helmet Hut said they didn't distribute NFL Riddell RK Helmets to consumers anymore, but they gave the Real Stuff Sports web site.

The service was awesome. I emailed them on a Thursday night about changing the facemask, and a sales person responded to my email about 90 minutes later! I placed the order on a Friday with my facemask change and I received it on the following Wednesday!

I'm anxious to get this helmet signed by Dawson. I think it's pretty unique and will look cool with a '62 AFL Champions inscription!

That is a real cool looking helmet, you MUST get it signed.

Eric - Thanks for stopping by.

I really like the helmet too. I'm getting Len Dawson to sign it this weekend at the CSA Show in Chantilly, VA. I'll post a picture next week.
