Ww2 Us Navy Rawlings Football Pants Pads Padding + Original Trench Art Dog Tag For Sale
This is a rare lot of USN navy football memorabilia.Purchased from an estate in Rhode Island.
I assume its dated around WW2 because of the style of dog tag. The lot includes~
One pair of Rawlings knee pads
One Rawlings pants
Pair of extra padding
A chin strap (No Helmet)
One trench art bullet and dog tag
The pants show there use with what looks like dirt marks, mostly on the knees. There are no holes or rips. Inside their is quilted fabric material with the removable plastic pads.
Inside also has the soldiers name Dan Vargas written on the back waist line and also Vargas written on the knees on both sides. The Rawlings logo is on the flap near the groin area along with a 5D stamp along the front waistband. There is also elastic material on the bottom legs witch is in good condition. Waist measure 19'' and pant leg measures 29'' long.
The Rawlings knee pads have the Rawlings St. Louis logo with the numbers 174 below it and the U.S.N letters on top. They both have brown dirt or mud marks on top. The straps on these are all there and good and button into place. The words on one is a little more faded then the other, but both should clean up nice along with the pants. Both are made of some type of clothe and leather. Knee pads measure 8'' across 7 1/2'' wide
The chin strap has leather where the chin fits in and below it has writing that is unreadable.(my guess is Vargas not sure)
The padding in picture 11 on top was just extra soft padding found with the rest of these items.
The padding on the bottom in picture 11 are the hard plastic plates that are in the pants.
The trench art dog tag has a bullet on the beaded chain, I'm not sure of the exact caliber. With the soldiers dog tags witch reads ~
VARGAS DANIEL A
