depends what shape the helmet is in.

the foam in the old mid 90's helmet are mostly the rubatex foam, they harden overtime and lose their protection. the plastic does become more brittle overtime, but you can usually tell with your own judgement if they still have some life left.

for example, i still use my jofa 282 helmet made in 1983 and a cooper sk2000 made in 1992 to play in goal with and i am perfectly fine even after getting smoked by pucks, but thats only because i make sure the foam inside is still good.

what kind of 90's helmet do you have? if you own a old cooper helmet then i know someone that sells new foam to replace the old crappy ones.
