Description

The son of an NFL quarterback, Peyton Manning followed in his father’s footsteps and called the signals as he led Tennessee to the 1997 SEC championship. While his breeding and talent were logical factors in his choice as the number 1 overall selection in the 1998 NFL Draft, it’s unlikely that anyone could have fathomed just what a remarkable career Manning would have. As rare a specimen as Manning has been leading offensive units to countless triumphs, this game-worn helmet is on a similar plateau as it was worn by the future Hall of Famer in both his 1998 rookie campaign and in the 1999 season. The white plastic shell features horseshoe logo decals adhered to the sides, a four-bar face mask and “18” decals (in proper font) straddling the blue center stripe. The “COLTS” bumper and “Riddell” snubber remain intact, as do the chin strap, interior pad cells and jaw pads. Clips affixing the face mask have “3 99” stampings, indicating the face mask was replaced in early 1999 after the shell had seen significant use, which shows in the form of gouge and contact marks. The Velcro radio transmitter patch is still affixed within the left ear hole. An absolutely fabulous gamer from the inaugural season of perhaps the best quarterback of all time! Comes with an LOA from SCD endorsed by renowned expert Troy Kinunen.
