A Baltimore Ravens Autographed Helmet is a miniature or full-sized helmet autographed by team members and/or staff of the Baltimore Ravens. Helmets from the official manufacturer, Riddell®, are considered to have more value than replicas and autographs can be acquired from authorized dealers or individual collectors. In order to be considered "team signed", a helmet must have the signatures of all offensive and defensive starters, as well as the coach.

Background

Demand for Baltimore Ravens memorabilia has increased since their victory in Super Bowl XLVII. The value of autographed helmets can vary greatly depending on the provenance of the helmet and who signed it. Helmets originating from the founding of the team, in 1996, are also sought after by collectors.
