Joe Washington

How many fans really knew that the Redskins wore this decal in the 82 season , 83 Super Bowl?  Now.. how many of you knew that Joe Washington was the only player that season not to wear this one year only, curved feather style decal?  Of course a clear-shelled Kelly helmet, decaled and painted from the inside is all Joe  wore his entire career.  This helmet was made for Joe Washington by Kelly for 83 season.  Since the Redskins returned to the straight feather the next year, they were unable to use this helmet.  Notice Joe 's two bar positioning, very different.  Mr. Kelly took the time to provide a nice letter which tells the story behind this helmet.
