Chicago Cubs third baseman Kris Bryant was the 2015 National League Rookie of the Year and the 2016 National League MVP and helped the Cubs to their first World Series title in 108 years when they won a dramatic seven-game series against the Cleveland Indians. Bryant was limited to 102 games in 2018 due to injury, but still managed to hit 13 home runs and had 52 RBI.
Offered here is a blue Chicago Cubs batting helmet that was worn by Bryant during the 2018 season. This helmet has been photo matched by Sports Investors Authentication to Bryant’s 102nd career home run, when he connected off of Atlanta Braves’ pitcher Julia Teheran in the third inning of the May 14th game at Wrigley Field. It was Bryant’s eighth home run of the 2018 season.
This all-blue helmet has the Cubs red and white “C” affixed to the front of the helmet. The helmet has an earflap over the left ear, along with a C-Flap extension. The back of the helmet has the MLB logo sticker affixed to the base. The interior padding is still intact and this helmet displays excellent game use with several marks. This is a tremendous game used item from 2016 National League MVP. This item comes with a LOA from Sports Investors Authentication (181212A3, who have photo matched this helmet to the May 14th, 2018 game in which Bryant collected his 102nd career home run. Additionally, there is an MLB Authenticated hologram (JD215940).
