Jersey & Helmet Style

White second generation winged helmet worn for just the 1947 season opener at Michigan.


Biggie Munn brought his Spartans out in the 1947 season opener at Michigan with the team wearing the white winged helmet.

Biggie Munn’s coaching debut resulted in a 55 – 0 loss to interstate arch rival University of Michigan. Being quite superstitious, Biggie Munn immediately retired the team’s new white winged helmet.

  • Winged helmet
