Mr. Gumball Machine Football Helmet

Mears

And you thought you were a little obsessive.

A Texas man’s passion is football and little plastic helmets…to the tune of 2000+ hand-made varieties.


Remember those little football helmets that game in gumball machines or were sold at NFL souvenir stands? They’re not being made these days but that hasn’t stopped one Texas man from making his own–for every football team and league you can imagine.

He’s an expert when it comes to NFL helmet logos–and just about everything other design we’ve seen over the years in nearly every league.

He buys the vintage product and turns them into his own new creations. Watch the video and read the story from ESPN.com.
