Default How much should a Broncos helmet cost?

Hey Guys,

I'm looking to get a full size broncos helmet either with the 96+ logo or the classic early 60s logo we're sporting this year. I've looked on ebay and it seems they're around 180 bucks.

Is this how much I should be paying? Seems like a lot. It's just for show.

$180 for an "authentic" helmet is not too bad - about as cheap as you're going to get, actually. IIRC, you can get "replica" helmets for about $100. They look mostly like a real helmet - but they're a lot thinner. I don't like them, to be honest. Do a Google search on them, and you should be able to find examples of both.

The ones I've seen online with the big D on it go for about $245.00 I think.

I almost bought the revolution helmet, that thing is bad ass.

You should be able to get a quality helmet for about $200. I got one that some guy used for 16 games for nothing ( and it is the coolest)

Your the luckiest Dad in the world.

But I haven't be able to find any helmet for $200.00 or less.

Someone at a skill position, maybe.

Don't get one signed by one of those grunts on the line. Those guys are lucky to be able to spell their name the same way twice.
