Updated on July 5, 2011

Nothing is more precious for a football fan kid than fulfilling the dream of having an ultimate collection of autographed football helmets. Why not start making a survey today for kids football helmets? There are variety of best options available on the web. These may come in standard product design editions or even the authentic hand signed items with certificates of authenticity and tamper-proof holograms.

The eHow.com is a good resource to obtain fun and inexpensive ideas about collecting football helmets. It is advised that as a beginner, one must consider to start with mini helmets. The online outlets particularly mentioned were sportscollectibles.com and nfl.com, which are the best recommended specialty sporting stores popular these days. Further, the website provides that one must choose a standard size of kids football helmets to collect.

Small and plastic type of kids football helmets has a price range of $0.50-$0.75. On the other hand, more authentic type of kids football helmets may cost $18-$30. The more expensive ones are made from similar material used for actual football helmets.

In particular, the highest quality and most sophistically designed kids football helmets in the market today are the Riddel football helmets. Their specialty in sports equipment is proven by recent studies. John Rockwell, in hubpages.com, wrote about Riddel as an established manufacturing company. He revealed a significant fact that the possibility of suffering concussion is 31% less with Riddel products than other youth football helmets. Hence, Riddel football helmets are specifically made for actual football game activity of kids and not just for collection or replica purposes.

Despite difference in value, there is however a dramatic effect or drastic increase in value of these kids football helmets once they are signed authentically. This places more thrill and excitement on the part of the collector and developments in football traditions already deal with intricate preservation techniques of these sports memorabilia.

Therefore, a kids football helmets collection is no ordinary type of collection but an exciting investment. Some people may either clear their shelf or buy a case for these precious collections.

There are available practical tips discussed in hubpages.com for avoiding fraudulent National Football League memorabilia. The precautions involve brand name, NOCSAE seal, helmet class distinction, distributor's reputation, and certificates of authenticity.

It is said that certain brands to look for are those that carry the "Official NFL helmets" tag. NOCSAE stands for National Operating Committe on Standsrts for Authentic Equipment. It is the body that ensures the manufacturer's compliance with sports product standards.

Parents must carefully study the distinction between authentic helmets and collectible helmets. This is not only due to safety reasons but also for avoiding fraudulent transactions. One most obvious and basic indicator is the "NFL Replica helmet" tag.

The significance of choosing large reputable distributors must always be considered because as a noteworthy warning, photograph schemes or seller's photograph of footplayer while signing items do not necessarily guarantee authenticity. Finally, on the issue of certificate of authenticity, one must always seek to obtain an original copy to ensure valid selling transactions.
