Just when you thought you’d seen every 1960s Cleveland Browns “CB” helmet item ever, up pops this Browns “CB” helmet bottle opener! This isn’t a new item made to look retro — it’s a legit vintage item, and the seller has some more teams available here.
Now for the rest of this week’s picks:
- Feelin’ a bit of the groovy flower-power vibe with this 1970s Cleveland Cavs keychain.
- This vintage Baseball Hall of Fame snow globe needs a bit of topping off! We’ve put men on the moon — why can’t we invent a snow globe that won’t leak?
- This 1960s Baltimore Colts Technigraph 3D helmet plaque is in perfect shape.
- Something you don’t see at NFL games anymore: fans with megaphones. Here’s a 1960s 7″ Chicago Bears megaphone in orange plastic.
- Punt, Pass & Kick participants in the 1960s got this Award Football from MacGregor.
- Coca-Cola sponsored this 1960s set of NFL “Go With the Pros” mini-helmets.
- Quarterback Fran Tarkenton was indeed the man for this 1968 NFL board game, aptly named Fran Tarkenton’s Pro Football. This is as real as it gets: “On offense, on defense, you make all the decisions for real pro teams!”
- “Rah Rahs!” was the maker of this 1960s set of NFL team buttons. You get the Rams, Saints, Falcons, and 49ers, which at one time comprised the NFC Western Division. Yes, the Falcons and Saints were put out west! No, I don’t know why.
- Look at this 8×10 of Packers legend Ray Nitschke. The helmet. The facemask. The sleeves. The steely glare. That, my friends, is a football player.
- Here’s a very nice-looking 1960s Cincinnati Bengals stadium blanket from Pendleton.
That’ll do it for this edition of CC. See you back here next week, and Happy Thanksgiving!
