Ivan “Pudge” Rodriguez Auto’d Game Used Batting Helmet
American Baseball Cap Company Texas Rangers batting helmet, size 7 3/8ths was game worn by future Hall of Fame catcher Ivan ‘Pudge’ Rodriguez. The helmet displays considerable game wear with appropriate scuffing and abrasions. The bill of the helmet, top and bottom, has a moderate coat of pine tar. Moderate pine tar is also on the top of the helmet. The location of the tar is a perfect Pudge characteristic which is present on the three helmets we have on the web site.
The helmet is constructed of royal blue high impact plastic with a vented left ear flap. Attached to the front is the Rangers “T” for Texas. Pudge’s number 7 and a red white and blue MLB logo is on the back of the helmet.The interior features foam padding for the left ear, top of the head and back of the head..
The date dial on the inside of the helmet indicates it’s date of manufacture was November of 1997. Rodriguez’s PSA/DNA authenticated autograph is on the bill in silver paint pen.
An outstanding game worm item of the slugging All Star catcher, accompanied by our J T Sports letter of authenticity.
