WOW. That looks SWEET! What did you have to give up to get that?!?!

I don't know man....it looks kinda fake to me.

Reason being, on fullsize helmets, Jim Brown usually signs his name HUGE. He wouldn't sign it so small and at the bottom like that.

you have to remember the helmet is from 1965.

I would get it authenticated. PSA DNA fee for Jim Brown is only 20 bucks.

Yea, the helmet may be. I doubt the auto is from then.

And like I said, Jim Brown, on EVERYTHING I've ever seen signed by him, signs stuff as big as possible.

Coming from a big time Browns fan/collector, it looks fake. That's all I'm saying. If you get it authenticated, LMK how it comes back.

Also, he signs his J's different than the one on your helmet. Plus, I highly doubt he would write the year on it when he signed it. That's just really random to think someone would do that. You don't see anyone sign like that, and the only resemblance to a year I've ever seen on anything Jim Brown has signed is "HOF 71".

You'd never see someone sign their name, and put 2008 under it....so that part alone leads me to believe that it's not actually from that year, someone wanted to make it seem like it was.
