1928 Crazy cool photograph of a football player named Benny Wattenberg from the University of Chicago who was a star player with a problem, he wore glasses. Rather than hang his cleats up for good, he had a special helmet built which was an executioners style mask that had glasses built in! An exceptional image in great shape, this is the only example we have ever seen!
