History & Corporate Information About Past Time Sports

Past Time Sports has been making Leather football helmets since 1996.

From our fine leather antique-stylefootball helmets to our
antique baseball gloves, antique style footballs , basketballs, and soccer balls in 1996 Past Time Sports begun handcrafting helmets out of the finest leathers, exact in every detail, to offer to coaches, fans and collectors everywhere.

At Past Time Sports we are also antique dealers and have antique stores which sell vintage sports equipment, one of a kind items we find all over the country. Our products make unique awards, trophies and banquet gifts, fundraising and incentives for football teams, schools and booster clubs.

Our handcrafted replica- helmets, balls and gloves make unique gifts, both for fans and for corporations and incredible fund raising incentives as we can personalize any and all of our products . The helmets, baseballs gloves and old time balls symbolize the Golden Era of these sports and the great nostalgia and tradition of that "never quit" spirit. The old ones are nearly extinct. Good clean examples can only be viewed in museums.

Past Time Sports "Glory Helmets"and baseball gloves are exacting to the the 1888-1900, 1920, 1930 and 1940 detail, from the inside out, with surface matches and textures to museum examples. They are full size, full weight, totally padded, with webbing on the inside as the helmets, gloves and balls of the golden era. Each has been handcrafted, hand-sewn and hand-tooled out of fine saddle quality leather like their rare ancestors . "Glory Helmets" can not be purchased anywhere else in the country except through authorized resellers. Here is an opportunity to acquire these great antique style helmets for yourself, your school or your associates and true fans who love the origins of the old game. Helmets, balls and gloves have been trademarked and patented.

Some of the greats who wore these helmets were Red Grange, Knute Rockne's Teams and the Four Horsemen, Bronko Nagurski, JimThorpe, Sammy Baugh, Tom Harmon, Doak Walker, Otto Graham, Crazy Legs Hirsh, Bobby Lane, Sid Luckman, Lou Groza, Bill Dougherty, Dante Leveli,
Ace Parker , Bobby Lane, Sid Luckman, Paul Horning, Joe Perry , and many other pro and college hall of famers, as well as the great early high school rivalries.

Because of the quality of the helmets, baseball gloves , antique basketballs ,soccer balls and early style footballs we have been fortunate to have our helmets sold at many great university athletic departments or with their sports merchandising catalogs or book stores.
