Atlanta Falcons Pocket Helmets – team site

*All 1969 2-bar helmets have the Riddell brand name on the back in all capital letters (RIDDELL). The regular 2-bar helmets from the 36-piece set display a different in half-cursive (RIDDell). There are two versions of the 1969 Falcons helmets, one in all caps like all the other 1969 throwback helmets (RIDDELL) and the other with the cursive font (RIDDell). To my knowledge, the Falcons helmet is the only two helmets that display both versions of the font.
