Chicago Cubs’ star first baseman Anthony Rizzo helped lead the Cubs to the playoffs with a solid regular season that included 31 home runs, 101 RBI and a .278 batting average. The 2015 season began a streak of three consecutive seasons in which Rizzo amassed more than 100 RBI for the season.
Rizzo wore this Rawlings size 7 ½ helmet during the 2015 season and for the final time on September 2nd against the Cincinnati Reds. This all blue helmet has the Cubs “C” affixed to the front of the helmet in red and white stitching. The ear flap is on the right ear and Rizzo’s number “44” and the MLB logo decals are affixed to the back. The all-black interior padding is still intact with the Rawlings and MLB Authentic labels sewn on in opposite sides, along with “7 ½” that has been handwritten in silver marker. This helmet displays moderate game use with some cracks on the top of the crown that run to the air vents. This item comes with an MLB Authenticated hologram (JB020908). Please note that MLB has labeled this helmet as Team Issued, a common designation for game use items not collected directly from players.
