Helmet Logos

The logo was created by LA Rams halfback Fred Gerhke in 1948, because he was trained in art. Gerhke himself hand-painted the leather helmets. He had played for the Rams in Cleveland in 1940 & 1945, and in LA from 1946-1949. In 1949, Riddell started making plastic shell helmets with the Rams logo.
