Green Bay Packers moved their Hall of Fame into Lambeau
Field in 2003, they included in the 25,000 square foot facility, 13 life-size statues of past and
present Packer stars.
Visitors can relive the
Ice Bowl, hop on a bike between Gilbert Brown and
Donald Driver and head to practice, or give Leroy Butler
a helping push into the Lambeau stands.
Each of these life-size statues, come complete with
it's own custom helmet, identical to the helmet that
they wore, or are currently wearing on the field.
Who did the Packers turn to for these helmets?
Who else, Real
Packers Hall of Fame President
Mike Gage summed it up best. "We wanted them (the
statues) to be exact in every detail. I think they
(Real Stuff Sports) nailed it."
For example: Although painted white,
Gilbert's helmet comes complete with triple strap
chinstrap, stabilizer facemask clips, dark tinted shield, and all
game decals. Even the size of the helmet is exact
- Extra Large to fit Gilbert's oversized melon.
According to Gordon Batty, the Packers Equipment
Manager, "...it is exact."
Comments from the Hall about the statues continue of the
magnificence, to simply "Unbelievable."
Here at Real Stuff, we are used to those comments, as
they are the same ones used by all of our customers that
purchase our custom helmets.
For us, "If they wear 'em we
got 'em" is not just a catchy slogan, it is
our way of doing business.
