Shortly after being bitten by the helmet collecting bug, my bank account began to complain.  Yet, I just couldn't bring myself to stop expanding my collection.  Sure, I could stick to minihelmets, but there's just something irresistible about a full-size, authentic game helmet!  So I began researching on how to expand my helmet collection without breaking my wallet.

 I began to buy used football helmets from various sources, and recondition them myself.  It's a fair bit of work, especially if the helmet has been well-used with lots of battle scars.  But, determined to expand my helmet collection at a reduced cost, I pressed on.  I felt that after all I've learned through my various experiences, I'd be happy to pass it along to you.  So follow along below as I recondition one of my relics into a treasure!
