Re: Sticker Artwork

2022 New Orleans Saints alternate helmet. Thanks. I hadn't even seen that design before you posted. Since then numerous teams have unveiled alternate helmets for the 2022 season in wake of the repeal of the NFL's "one helmet rule" which had been in place since 2013. My take on the others is attache...

Re: Layered Gumball helmets

They look great! How much would pieces like the ones pictured cost?

Your logo helmet reminds me of the USFL Maulers.

Re: Sticker Artwork

Continuing to try to get a design closer to the real thing. I think some creasing/folding is inevitable, sort of like what I use for the CFL's Montreal Alouettes. It's hard to wrap a sticker around that much curved helmet without creasing, but a side sticker represents it about as well as OPI's vers...

Of Interest to No One but Me

I need a thread to share things that don't belong anywhere else. Below is a set I did of Junior High Schools from Dallas, Texas in the 1970's. I used the actual school colors (from the time) and in the majority I got the graphics from some source associated with the school, but it's unlikely any of ...

Tim Potter 2022 USFL Set

Tim Potter ( gumballhelmets.com ) posted a 2022 USFL set for sale on eBay. He sticks to the traditional side sticker format, and the Breakers and Panthers look pretty good that way. I'm always torn between that and more realistic construction. I had originally decided that the side sticker wasn't su...

Helmet in Retail Bag

Got this for cheap on eBay. Never seen them sold like this. At Walgreen's, apparently. And apparently between 1970 and 1976.

Re: Sticker Artwork

This is it. I will probably revisit the downward angle of the wave where it connects to the back later. Interesting. The curvature of the "bridge" and the angling of the side part probably eliminates some of the problem I am having. 20220220_115720_resized.jpg The overall effect from a distance I a...

Excellent work as usual Wizard!
You're very kind.

The new USFL teams revealed their uniforms today. The New Orleans Breakers design is a nightmare. I mean it looks fine, but translating it to gumball is proving to be challenging.
