Is there anyone selling replica Apollo helmets or gloves? Even miniaturized versions of the helmet maybe?

I really don't understand why no one has done this. They'd be great items to get signed. Replica football helmets have been made for a long time. A replica astronaut helmet would look fantastic if done right.

Here is a full scale version on eBay for a buy-it-now price of $499.99 and free shipping.

Funnily enough this is something I thought about too recently. It definitely would be a good idea if someone made these on a commercial and affordable basis.

Thanks for the info on the helmet. Don't know that it would be economically feasible but it would be a nice item to get signed.

I don't think it would be very expensive for some company to do something like that. I honestly can't believe someone hasn't done it already. Anyone want to invest in my new Apollo Replicas startup company?

I'm interested, I have made replicas of Apollo suit (A7L and A7LB) and several pieces for museums and private. Write to my email. Thanks.
