This helmet is properly tagged, was presented to us as game-used and in our opinion shows appropriate use. Accompanied by an additional LOA. This helmet is sourced directly from the family off Todd Marinovich. Marinovich’s grandfather, Chief Fertig, was the Chief of Police at Huntington Park and was part of the security at the Los Angeles Coliseum. Fertig was close friends with the equipment managers and they would gift him helmets often. This helmet was once on display in a museum.
