A standout quarterback and punter at UNLV, Randall Cunningham enticed his Philadelphia Eagles suitors to pluck him in the second round of the 1985 NFL Draft and subsequently passed and ran his way into the hearts of that team's rabid fan base. The offered Eagles helmet was worn and signed by the four-time Pro Bowler during the 1987 season, his first as the club's # 1 starter. This green plastic shell features winged team decals adhered to both sides and an “EAGLES” label attached to the “Riddell” snubber. Near the top right, Cunningham's silver Sharpie signature (“8” strength) is accompanied by his inscription of “#12.” Near the base, a size “L” stamping is situated beside a Dymo Label denoting “CUNNINGHAM.” Padded cells line the interior crown and sides. Present, as well, is a large forehead pad and (2) jaw pads. Additionally, a manufacturer's “WARNING” sticker is adhered within the crown. The item shows medium use with scuff marks throughout. The five-bar facemask remains intact and the chinstrap is a replacement. Getty Image #73612432 matches this item to one worn by Cunningham. Accompanying is an auction LOA from James Spence Authentications for the autograph. Complete description available on our website.
