Hunt Auctions: Drysdale's Batting Helmet

Hunt Auctions is closing up on it's current 7th annual Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory Auction later this week. Check out my post, here, from a week or so ago about a couple of other Dodger related items from this auction.

This batting helmet comes directly from a former Dodger clubhouse employee named Joe Pitts. In fact, the items I described previously also comes from him. This is a game worn helmet that once belonged to Don Drysdale. It is a circa 1960's helmet and features Drysdale's number on the brim of the hat. It shows fine use from a pitcher who also was an excellent batsman. He belted 29 home runs.
