This is an authentic game-worn University of Notre Dame football helmet that has been autographed by former head coach, Lou Holtz. The helmet comes mounted to an oak wood base. Also mounted to the base, directly in front of the helmet's face mask, is an engraved plaque inscribed with the following: "Authentic Game Helmet University of Notre Dame" The plaque also bears the Notre Dame logo. (Close-up view of plaque located in the lower right corner of photo) This helmet comes with a certificate of authenticity issued by the Notre Dame Athletic Department. Lou Holtz coached the University of Notre Dame Fighting Irish from 1986 until 1996. In his third full season as the Notre Dame head coach, Holtz led the Fighting Irish to an undefeated season, a Fiesta Bowl win and, ultimately, a national championship. The following season, the Fighting Irish finished 12-1 and second in the final NCAA standings. In his 10 years at Notre Dam, Lou Holtz took the Irish to nine consecutive bowl games, which is still a Notre Dame football record. A great addition to any Notre Dame fan's collection!
