Basketball “Bumpers” Protect Eyeglasses, 1941

In 1941, “bumpers” for basketball players enable those who wear glasses to enjoy the sport. A transparent guard of unbreakable plastic, cut away to bridge the nose, completely surrounds the spectacles and insures them against being knocked off or shattered if struck. Supported by straps, the headgear is held away from the face by resilient pads resting against forehead and cheeks, and is said not to impair vision. The illustration shows Dick Dikeman, high-school player of Detroit, Mich.
