Butch Goring helmet

picked up an interesting helmet the other day for cheap from someone, after hours and hours of google-ing i came to the conclusion that this is the same one that butch goring used to wear a long time ago while he was with the isles.....

does anyone know what the worth of these helmets are today.....? just curious as to what i have in my hands

mods: not sure if this is the right forum feel free to move the thread.

Best helmet ever. It looked like 2 halves, front and back, with a big vent in the middle. It is still the joke once in awhile around the locker room amongst the older guys.

Be sure to post any info or pics you find.

As for the value of the helmet - periodically check on Ebay for similar ones and see what they go for.

Apparently the helmet was a Snaps brand helmet:

As far as old unusual helmets go: one player in a group that plays before I do wears a green Northland helmet - I think he probably used to play on the Thunder Bay Twins (former Senior hockey team), another player that was on the same NBC as I has a helmet that had Spalding and the 'hat size' printed on the back of it. When I started playing goal I had that piece of crap Cooper XL7 for a brief length of time.

I've seen the Northland helmets up on Ebay for around $100 (not sure if or how much they sold for). Haven't noticed any helmets like Goring's on Ebay or know if there is a market for them.

I can't believe goalies would wear that XL7 helmet, that thing was a piece of no 2 if I have ever seen one.

Those helmets are worthless. Wait, I mean priceless!

I keep hockey items I've inherited or found for an eventual ice hockey museum/display. It's not like I cherish the old stuff or am a collector, I just can't bring myself to throw away a bunch of ancient broken sticks, rusted leather skates, etc.

I've got some sticks, skates and equipment I'm hanging onto from the early 70's, just can't seem to get rid of them! It's hockey history!
