Monster Football League

I bought some "Snap" helmets from David Jingo ( jngz on eBay ) recently which included something I hadn't seen before. http://www.gumballwizard.net/mflebay.jpg Apparently these were available in gumball machines at some point.

Gumball Helmets with Actual Gumballs

I mainly got these helmets from vending machines when I was a kid, but I am aware they also glued little plastic pencil sharpeners in them and sold them in dime stores, and that IHOP had promotions involving them.

Welcome to the Gumball Football Helmet Forum

While seeking information on the subject myself, it occurred to me it would be useful to have a current online resource for information on gumball football helmets. I'm not delusional about how much interest there is out there. I know it's a small niche, but at least I can make all the information I...
