Tom Selleck's Dragons Batting Helmet Still Exists

Was reading yesterday and saw a brief note regarding the Dragons.  Apparently a reader of uni-watch that works on the set of the American TV show Modern Family found the batting helmet Tom Selleck (Jack Elliot) wore in the movie Mr. Baseball.  They took a quick photo of the helmet and sent it to the blogger.  A link to the photo can be found in the "Uni Watch News Ticker" at the bottom of this page.  The helmet has Jack Elliot's number 54 on the brim and appears to be the same helmet seen on the left.  From the photo it looks like the helmet has been hanging out in a closet or box with a bunch of other props from other sports-related shows or movies.  Something like that clearly deserves a more dignified storage place, like in a display somewhere.  At least it still exists and hopefully this discovery will lead to it being placed somewhere where it can be preserved.  Somehow I doubt that will happen.
