Fantasy Football Gumball Helmets

As I continued to grow my collection of Gumball Football Helmets from the NFL to the WFL to the Arena League and beyond, I began to think about creating Fantasy Helmets.  I had often thought about how some sports logos would look on Football helmets.  What would a Los Angeles Lakers helmet look like?  How about the Edmonton Oilers?  Or the Boston Lobsters (World Team Tennis anyone?)?  Well, I took my love of custom gumball helmets to the next level and created sets for many other sports.  I also created Fantasy Helmets for various Fantasy Football League (some that I play in and some that I don't play in).  

To date, I have created Fantasy Football Helmet artwork for the following leagues:


In addition, I have completed sets for the Justice League (comic books) and the helmets from the teams in the video game "Blitz".

I have also completed a number of helmets shown in Movies, Television Shows and Commericials.  Many of these were completed with a big assist from MGHELMETS.COM.  Finally, I have done work for some fantasy football leagues and some custom work for specific collections (all New York based sports teams for example).

Shown above are a few photos of these sets.  Enjoy,
