Description: Exceptional Jim Thome game used Chicago White Sox batting helmet c.2006-09 (White Sox team letter). Rawlings brand helmet with the "Sox" team logo on front has player number "25" in applied decals on back. Incredible usage wear can be found throughout with nearly the entire upper exterior surface covered in now dry pine tar. Thome is well known for his forever "dirty" helmet and often touched his hands to his head while at bat to enhance grip. Thome is recognized to have used very few helmets over the course of his career and we can cite no others which have recently come up for auction. With regard to the direct first hand provenance, notoriety level of the player, and overall usage characteristics, we would rank this among the better modern era game used pieces which we have ever offered. Includes LOA from Chicago White Sox: EX
