Check out these little beauties! I found this fantastic 30-piece MLB helmet set by Rawlings at our local Dick’s Sporting Goods store for only $12. I mean, c’mon! That’s less than 50 cents a helmet! When my wife asked, “Are you really going to buy that?,” I told her, “It’s a no brainer” and marched proudly up to the checkout.

Bottom Line: They’re well made, with accurate colors and sharp graphics. What’s not to love? They’d be great for dioramas where your Joes are sitting around watching sports or dressed in their civvies and walkin’ around town like tourists. I don’t think Dick’s carries them online, but I searched around and found ’em for sale over at Amazon and elsewhere for about $14 plus shipping.

    A few years ago, Toys R Us used to have vending machines in the exit lobby that dispensed a very similar product and football helmets as well. I don’t know if they still have them, as our local store closed (Thanks, Wal-Mart! Grrr…) but if so, the baseball caps can be modified into old-style Highway Patrol/Race Car driver helmets with the addition of leather earflaps. The football helmets also make great crash helmets (after removing the facegaurd) for skydivers or helicopter pilots, or protective headgear for pugil-stick training uniforms or American Gladiator type stuff.
