Long before the birth(er) of "Make America Great Again" hats, President Trump endorsed another form of famous red headwear. He purchased the NJ Generals prior to the 1984 season and injected enough cash to lure several NFL vets plus Heisman winner Doug Flutie. Alas, yuge money did not equal yuge success as the Generals lost their first-round playoff game. But Herschel Walker did rack up a record 2,411 rushing yards. Fast forward to 2016 and not only was Walker (a former contestant on Season 8 of Celebrity Apprentice) one of the first celebrity supporters of Trump's presidential campaign, but he has also expressed interest in heading up the President’s Council on Fitness, Sports and Nutrition. "You never think that somebody you have known or as close as I've known that family is going to be President of the United States," Walker told the Washington Post. “You know, that's big time. Now, it’s not like I can call him up on the phone…Now I have to go through so much security."
Walker's teammate Doug Woodward, a journeyman QB, donned this Trump-era helmet at the end of the '85 season. His number "14" appears on the reverse, with team logo decals on both sides and a "GENERALS" decal in front. The Riddell WD1-model helmet shows solid overall wear and retains its original chin strap. There are two marker notations of number "4" on the interior. With his love of the Generals, no wonder Trump selected so many of them for his Cabinet!
