Featured is a 1962 Navy Midshipmen Roger Staubach custom throwback mini helmet. The design comes from the tradition Navy “all-gold” as a “Jolly Roger” skull and crossbones decal is adhered to the front center and Chinese characters that translate to “Beat Army” adorn the sides. The “Jolly Roger” label was simply meant to instill fear because of imagery alone. It was only coincidence that “Roger” gained widespread recognition that day as the Midshipmen trounced Army before a national television audience. As for the Chinese characters, they were intended as a dig mocking Army first-year head coach Paul Dietzel who, during the previous year at LSU, had gained acclaim mentoring a swarming defense that earned the nickname “Chinese Bandits.” This item is great for your office, man cave and autographs.
