1939 is when the NCAA made facemasks in football mandatory. Before then, players wore leather helmets without a facemask on them.

Can schutt face-masks fit a riddell helmet?

Generally, the answer is yes, as many college and NFL teams buy Schutt facemasks for their Riddell Revolutions or VSR-4 helmets. Schutt makes over 80% of the world's facemasks. There are specific model Schutt facemasks that fit Revolutions, otherwise the traditional Schutt facemasks will fit the VSR-4 helmet and other Riddell helmets. They can fit, but if you're like me and have a fat head, Schutt facemasks make Riddell helmets far too tight around the jaws. I am in the middle of customizing all of my Riddell VSR-4 helmets with Schutt facemasks ( like the pros) and have found that if you use Riddell thick bar clips with the Schutt facemasks, it makes a far better fit. I'm unaware if college and pro players do this, though.
