Custom Prototype Helmets
Custom prototype helmets are helmets that were actually proposed by NFL teams at some point, but never actually used.
Dallas Texans – The Dallas Texans (later the KC Chiefs) apparently proposed a blue helmet. The story I have read on line is that when teams were selecting colors, the Houston Oilers selected their colors first. The first Oilers helmet is this exact same Columbia Blue. So, the Texans used red. I have not seen actual evidence to support this claim, however.
Houston Texans – The Texans originally proposed a white helmet. According to ESPN’s Uni Watch, the white helmet even appeared in Madden 2002.
New England Patriots – The Patriots proposed the following logo in 1979. The Patriots asked the fans to vote for the change. The fans voted no. I am not sure if the stripe color was ever determined.
San Francisco 49ers – The 49ers proposed this logo change in 1991.
Seattle Kings – The Kings were a proposed NFL team in 1972.
St. Louis Stallions – The Stallions were a proposed team in the early 1990’s.
Unique Custom Pocket Pro Helmets
These are unique custom helmets that were never officially endorsed, manufactured, or proposed by NFL teams. They’re just fun experiments.
