New York Yankees Construction Helmet from Tour of New Yankee Stadium

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $240

During the construction of the new Yankee Stadium (2006-2009), visiting celebrities, city VIPs, and other dignitaries who were given tours of the facility were required, by law, to wear hardhats. However, the hardhats they were given to wear were not the usual yellow or orange fare. Instead, they were issued navy-blue helmets featuring the Yankees logo on the front. Offered here is one such helmet issued during that construction period. The helmet, which is an "Omega II" model manufactured by ERB Industries, features an adjustable size strap on the interior (size range 6 1/2 - 8) and displays a Major League Baseball logo on the reverse. The helmet displays light wear, but no evidence of any falling debris having struck the recipient during his or her tour. In Excellent condition overall. This is a very rare and interesting souvenir relating to the new Yankee Stadium and the first example we have ever handled. Reserve $200. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $240
