Autograph Mini-Helmets

Each Autograph Mini-Helmet is serial-numbered to the production figures listed below. In addition, each player signed 25 helmets in Gold ink.

Each Autograph Mini-Helmet is a stock, off-the-shelf, souvenir mini-sized Riddell batting helmet. Topps instructed each player to autograph the brim of the helmet, without taking it out of it's display box. The bottom of the red display box has a sticker indicating the player's name and serial-number.

Topps then packaged each signed mini-helmet (still in it's red factory Riddell display box) inside a shrink-wrapped white slip-case.
