Cool find, rare vintage Spalding facemask for your consideration. Made in
USA. This came in a plastic bag annotated "Huff Spalding New York Giants."
I'm assuming that refers to Giants great Sam Huff. I remember him wearing big
facemasks in the 60s, but perhaps this is what he wore earlier on, as this is
50s era. I picked up several old school helmets recently that came from a
mega-collector," so I'll be listing them in the near future. Not sure of the
size of this mask. Competitive use in evidence with scratching/rubbing to
Lucite (?) and gouging to foam. Not sure if this "lacing" is original.
Leather and buckles at top show wear, but still intact. There is also a
leather chinstrap which is intact. However, this mask smells very musty,
probably from being enclosed in a bag in storage for years. I will enclose
this in the plastic bag it came with. Neat old school facemask for your
vintage gridiron/helmet collection. I could not find another like this on
. Please check all photos carefully and use zoom feature to ensure this
item is for you. Sold as is/as found. Good luck bidding.
