A nice companion piece to his brother Cal's helmet also offered in our auction, this battle-scarred gamer shows heavy wear with scuffs, abrasions, color transfers, sweat staining and pine tar. The O's logo decal appears on front, with a "3 RIPKEN 3" label on reverse. Billy the Kid wore number 3 in Baltimore from 1987 to 1992, and then again in 1996.
