Here is an awesome Game Used Buffalo Bills helmet. We believe that this helmet was worn by Marvcus Patton during his rookie season with the Bills. This Bike Air Power helmet has seen some tough trench warfare. The Bike Air Power was a popular helmet used in the 80's and 90's by the Bills and was worn by many of its players including Bruce Smith. This helmet is identical in many ways to the Game Used Smith helmet that we have. Center Will Grant wore #53 during his eight years with the Bills, but Grant wore a Riddell helmet. Patton was drafted in the 8th round of the 1990 draft out of UCLA. He played with the Bills through 1994 and signed a free agent contract with the Washington Redskins in 1995. He played a total of 13 seasons and retired from football following the 2002 season with the Kansas City Chiefs. With the markings and features of this helmet, we believe that Patton, an 8th round pick, was issued this hand-me-down previously used helmet. All components of this helmet are original, and consistent with Buffalo Bills game helmets.

Bike Air Power (double bladder) model helmet, molded scarlett, in a size large, 7 1/8. The helmet is dated 1983, and was reconditioned by All American in 1988. The helmet comes complete with a Schutt NJOP-DW-XL thin wire mask. The mask is dated 1989. The mask is attached to the helmet with Schutt Clips on top, dated 1989 as well. The sides of the mask are attached with white Shockblocker clips, as used by the Bills. Silver phillips screws are used to hold the mask to the helmet. The chinstrap is a soft cup, Riddell high mount, as used by Patton. The chinstrap is from the 80's, but appears to be in new condition. Metal clips are used on the chinstrap.

The Bills decals are well worn. Tears, rips, and abrasions are present on the logos. Adhesive outlines remain from other Bills decals that were removed and replaced. This was the helmet of a trench warrior. The center striping is three individual stripes as preferred by the Bills prior to switching to the triple stripe in the early to mid 90's. The only decals on the rear of the helmet is the #53 in correct font, thickness, and helmet position. There is no NFL shield that was worn from 1991 on. There is no warning label on the rear of the helmet, however there is an outline of where one was present. On the interior of the helmet, there is a reconditioning sticker from 1988.

The helmet shows heavy wear on both the inside and outside of the helmet. Worn padding, battered decals, as well as some gouges on the top, chips and scrapes on the facemask and decals; this helmet displays very well. One final interesting feature of this helmet is the additional holes that are present. An additional hole between the lower two chinstrap snaps on each side of the helmet exists. Perhaps for a older style one or two Bar Facemask used in the past by a kicker. In addition, four holes were drilled in the rear of the helmet. These holes were most likely used to attach additional equipment such as a neck roll. If this helmet could talk, it would have your undivided attention as you sat on the edge of your seat.
