THIS ITEM HAS BEEN AUTOGRAPHED BY OREGON AND NFL GREAT DAN FOUTS!
For a quarterback recruited only by Oregon, he wrote an impressive football story. He may best be remembered at Oregon for throwing the winning pass in what many consider the most exciting football game in school history, a three-touchdown rally at UCLA in 1970.
He established 19 school records while at Oregon, including those for career passing yardage (5,995) and total offense (5,871) which stood for 14 years and the one-game passing mark that only was broken in 1989. He joined the San Diego Chargers in 1972 and completed a 15-year career with more than 43,000 yards passing and as one of only three NFL quarterbacks to throw for 4,000 yards in multiple seasons.
The Schutt AiR XP™ is a traditional shell helmet with that familiar, spherical shape that so many players have grown up with. A unique combination of tradition with state-of-the art technology in a helmet that’s small in appearance but packs the BIGGEST protection of any traditional shell helmet on the field.
This is one of 25 pink helmets that will be auctioned between Saturday October 19th and Friday, October 25th. The pink helmets worn by the Oregon Ducks pay tribute to those who have been affected by women's cancers. This is a new, unworn helmet. Each helmet will open at $14 with bid increments of $14 in honor of the jersey number of the legendary Kay Yow and 100% of the proceeds will go to aid in the fight against women's cancers. The fair market value of this helmet is $1,000.
NOTE: The helmet will include the same KayYow logo worn by the players on the field, however the decals were not available when the helmet was photographed.

Coming together in support of a common cause, the University of Oregon will rally a larger team to battle one opponent that touches us all: cancer. The Ducks will take the field on Saturday wearing uniforms to honor cancer survivors and help raise money for the fight against women's cancers.
Nike and the University of Oregon have partnered for many years during the month of October to honor Breast Cancer Awareness. This year, the Ducks’ will wear pink Nike Vapor Talon Elite cleats, pink Nike Vapor Carbon Elite socks and pink Vapor Jet gloves in combination with their black Nike Pro Combat uniform system. In addition, this year the Ducks will punctuate their look with bold pink helmets. The special edition BCA uniforms are designed to raise awareness and funds for the Kay Yow Cancer Fund as the team stands united in their support to help find a cure for women’s cancers.
“Cancer has touched so many lives and hopefully, together with Nike and the Kay Yow Cancer Fund, we can help create awareness and help raise money for the fight against women’s cancers” said Oregon Football Head Coach Mark Helfrich. “It is an honor to join Coach Yow’s team in a fight that unites us all.”
Founded by former North Carolina State University head women's basketball coach Kay Yow, the Kay Yow Cancer Fund is committed to finding an answer in the fight against women's cancers. Coach Yow believed strongly that coaches share not only a community, but should also share in a cause much larger than any game.
“Coach Yow knew that if motivated coaches, their student-athletes and a dedicated community came together, they could enact meaningful change on and off the playing field,” said Sue Donohoe, executive director, Kay Yow Cancer Fund. “The collaboration between Nike, the University of Oregon and the Kay Yow Cancer Fund exemplifies this spirit of teamwork and generosity, and will enable the Kay Yow Cancer Fund to continue its battle against women’s cancers.”
In support, Nike and the University of Oregon will auction a limited number of the Ducks’ pink helmets to raise funds in support of the Kay Yow Cancer Fund with all proceeds from the auction donated to the Kay Yow Cancer Fund. At kick-off on Saturday, October 19, five helmets will be released each day for five consecutive days, including autographed versions by University of Oregon Head Coach Mark Helfrich and Oregon legends Dan Fouts, Joey Harrington, Ahmad Rashad and Phil Knight.
