Old style College Leather Football helmets

During the 1920-1940 College football thrived and was called the Golden Age ..teams started the 20s by wearing very generic natural brown leather football helmets ...where they faced one another in the same rust brown leather helmets and the jerseys were the only distinguishing factors. But as rivalries grew and teams became more competitive Universities and colleges added their school colors to the leather football helmets ...so that the quarterback could see his receivers far down the field .
