Subject: 1970s and 1980s UNC Helmets UPDATES

University of North Carolina yearbooks have been digitized and have quite a lot of color photos I've not been able to find elsewhere to correlate with your wonderful website.

1) Your 1978 UNC helmet shows a light blue facemask, but it appears gray in all the photos of the 1979 UNC yearbook, e.g. http://library.digitalnc.org/digitalnc/bookreader/bookreader.php?coll=/yearbooks&id=2143#page/261/mode/1up

2) There is a question mark for '1978 only'. Yearbook photos do not show use of this helmet design for any other season.

3) There is a question mark for '1979 only'. Yearbook photos do not show use of this helmet design for any other season. The gray facemask was used the entire season.
e.g. http://library.digitalnc.org/digitalnc/bookreader/bookreader.php?coll=/yearbooks&id=2173#page/297/mode/1up and http://library.digitalnc.org/digitalnc/bookreader/bookreader.php?coll=/yearbooks&id=2173#page/308/mode/1up

4) The facemask of the 1986-1987 helmet appears darker in yearbook photos than in your depiction, e.g. http://library.digitalnc.org/digitalnc/bookreader/bookreader.php?coll=/yearbooks&id=2149#page/232/mode/1up

I am a very big fan of this website and think it is an important resource. I found it before Uni-Watch.com or sportslogos.net and still think of it as my primary resource if I have helmet questions. I know it's a tremendous amount of work and I applaud your effort.

I've just listed a few items I found. http://www.digitalnc.org/ has digitized a lot of state of North Carolina material including university yearbooks which might be useful if there are gaps in other helmet info, e.g. this 1969 color photo of a Duke helmet with the '100' logo http://library.digitalnc.org/digitalnc/bookreader/bookreader.php?coll=/yearbooks&id=1426#page/187/mode/1up
