I remember reading about Esa Tikkanen searching for these all over Finland and Sweden, buying them in any colour he found to have a steady supply. He probably went through a couple every season.
Esa the helmet horder!... he prolly sells them at a premium to all his old Oiler buddies. He's the only stop to get equiped for your old timers games.

The global market place has killed all the regional equipment makers. Used to be neat to see some dude out there completely decked out in his national gard. Now with Nike,Reebok making everything it's hard to tell these guys aprat but for the name tags.
