On a different note, I do acquire a lot of the "duck-billed" helmets as I like to call them. It seems as though a lot of people don't care to collect these but I think they are really neat because they seem to be so different. I got an email from a gentleman in March of 2006 telling me how he remembered those helmets being sold at Fulton County Stadium back in '74. Also, he had mentioned how once you purchased the helmet the seller would then apply the sticker for you right there. He had stated that he got an Angels helmet like that through the mail when he was a teenager. A great example of the lighter blue Braves helmet with an outlined red "A" logo can be seen to the left. These tend to be hit or miss and I have acquired many of them over the years.
