As part of the 50th anniversary celebrations of the Dallas Cowboys, the Officially Licensed Artist of Super Bowl XLV, 3D Pop Artist Charles Fazzino, has designed a unique helmet for the team. This helmet has been created for a good cause. Fazzino and the Dallas Cowboys will auction off this piece of artwork, and the money received will be donated to The Salvation Army. With a color coding of silver and blue, this helmet depicts images representing key moments in the franchise’s history.
One can see the three homes of the Cowboys, the Cotton Bowl, Texas Stadium and the Cowboys Stadium. It also celebrates members of the Dallas Cowboys Ring of Honor, the players, coaches and front office staff who have been inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, plus several other important benchmarks. One can also see the Salvation Army shield painted on the helmet.
The Jones Family, who own the team have for the last 13 seasons reserved the Cowboys annual Thanksgiving Day halftime show for the kickoff of The Salvation Army’s annual Red Kettle fundraising campaign. Since 1997, they have helped generate more than $1.3 billion for The Salvation Army. That is indeed commendable. This special helmet will be auctioned off by Heritage Auction Galleries on December 19, 2010 at 10:00 PM CT.
