    Todd Stansbury May go down as one of our best ADs ever. The number of innovative programs like this they keep churning out is impressive.

    Is $600 really a lot if you already purchased season tickets, and gave at least 2,000 dollars?

    Should be chump change for some of you Big Baller GT grads.

    Now, if they can release a $20 helmet for broke students, they would really be in business :cool::D

    Everyone posting seems to want better teams that compete. Moving forward that cost $$$$. We compete with MIT, Rice , Stanford , etc on academics and factories in D1 sports. Hard balance to maintain but that’s the goal. Not aware of too. Many colleges who meet this challenge. The helmet sale seems like an innovative avenue to raise money versus just asking people who give more than average to just keep giving money. These are gt history and are limited quantity . They should move well. If this is not for you please stay positive with the comments to motivate those who could be interested to participate . I like what I see and hear from Todd.

    If I was a Season Ticket Holder and at the required AT Fund level I'd do it in a heart beat. How,ever, once it becomes apparent that no other STH will purchase them, open it to the general public.

    Same price that they sell them to the players if they want one. They can keep the gold when they are Sr’s. Hopefully this means they are a thing of the past. So I guess they are getting new helmets since the current ones are not the new shade of gold.

    I love this idea, but this part of the note gives me a sad:
    “The white "honeycomb" helmet design is being discontinued as part of Georgia Tech athletics' brand refinement and transition to adidas.”
    I really would have liked to see adidas play around with a hexacomb design as part of our branding. It has the potential to be a unique identifier, plus I dig geometric patterns.

    $600 is not bad. I mean it is if you want to compare it to how much it cost to make. But in this case it’s fundraising. If you think of it as a donation to help those renovations, then its $600 and you get a helmet as a side benefit.

    Glad I filled out the survey they sent out a while back because it looks like they read them and are using them. Hope they will a couple more of my suggestions. A full size replica helmet goes for over a $100. So $600 for a game used helmet is not that bad.

    You only have to be one of the following to be able to purchase a helmet:
    • a 2018 football season-ticket holder;
    • an active Alexander-Tharpe Fund member at the Heisman level or above or a Life Member;
    • a contributor to the 2018 Georgia Tech Football Recruiting Challenge (at any level).
    If you are not yet eligible you can become eligible by doing one of the following:
    • purchase season tickets
    • make a gift of $1,000 or more to the A-T Fund
    • make a gift of $1,000 or more to the 2018 Georgia Tech Football Recruiting Challenge

    As the poster above mentioned, you do not have to be a Season Ticket Holder AND donate at a certain AT fund level. Just being a season ticket holder qualifies you to purchase.

    I am not sure if you are a season ticket holder or not, but I just wanted to clarify.

    But they were used in a game!!!!

    Guess they are for the GT fan that has just about everything else. $600 yikes!! Won't be in my display.
    But if you have a business and can expense it as a decoration you can swing it.

    If it was mine as a player, then I'd consider it. I.e. sentimental value.

    But hey, if GTAA can sell and get some $s, well done for doing so.
