Riddell Chiefs full-size authentic on-field helmet. Hand-signed in black felt-tip pen by Derrick Thomas (Chiefs, HOF, D. 2000). Please note, helmet shows signs of wear.

Derrick Thomas played his entire 11-year career for the Chiefs after being drafted fourth overall in the 1989 NFL Draft. Thomas, part of the class of 2009 entering the Pro Football Hall of Fame, was a premier football player throughout the 1990s and is considered one of the best pass rushers of all time. In 1990 against the Seattle Seahawks, he set an NFL record with seven sacks in a single game. On February 8, 2000, Thomas died from a massive blood clot that developed in his paralyzed lower extremities and traveled to his lungs. His paralysis was the result of severe injuries sustained in a car accident weeks earlier.

The lot / autograph(s) includes an official James Spence Authentication (JSA) hologram and matching LOA for authenticity purposes.
