Gear of The Week

Affordability is typically a factor in my selections for Gear of The Week. I am sensitive to the fact that Raiders gear might not have priority over your heating bill or your child’s education (what’s wrong with you?!).

But today I’m going to break with Raider Take tradition and select something that is a little pricey: the authentic Oakland Raiders throwback helmetby Riddell. Hey, at least it’s on sale ($30 off). Maybe Santa Claus has deep pockets this year? There is also a nice replica versionfor $99.

This helmet is the original logo design from 1963, when Al Davis first prowled the sidelines. It would look pretty sharp in your den, wouldn’t it?

This style helmet was worn one year, 1963. The original Oakland Raider (1960-1961) helmet was black without a logo or stripe. In 1962 a single stripe was added to the black helmet.

I attended the first Oakland Raider game ever played, July 31, 1960, at Kezar Stadium in San Francisco.

Thank you, Charles! I thought they used it for a few more years than that, but I stand corrected. I am updating my post.

To all, here is a great site for charting NFL helmet designs through the ages:
