The Oakland Raiders like to brag they’re the bad boys of the National Football League. It’s a swagger they’ve carried with them as they’ve moved from Oakland to Los Angeles and then back to Oakland. The “silver and black” – fans and players – consider themselves marauders, always on the lookout for the next treasure quest.

These days the head pirate is Jon Gruden, a former Raiders head coach who left the team and won a Super Bowl title with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Can Gruden lead the Raiders to the promised land as well? While we await that title run, here are four items that every Oakland Raiders fan should own.

Oakland Mini Football Helmet

Oakland Mini Football Helmet

Authentically re-created in one-quarter size and even featuring a four-point chinstrap, this mini-helmet is perfect for autographs. Amazon

Oakland’s football helmet design is timeless, but do you know the story behind the team’s logo? Legend has it that when the team was founded in 1960, its PR director commissioned an unknown artist to design a logo but specified that it should show a helmeted man – with an eye-patch of course – and a chin like that of famed westerns actor Randolph Scott. The logo has remained relatively unchanged over the decades.

Folding Tailgating Chair

Folding Tailgating Chair

This Raider-themed chair includes a cup holder to keep your drinks steady and a storage pouch to protect your wallet and keys from the weather. Amazon

Portable tailgating chairs are pretty common outside NFL stadiums these days, but we love this one for the built-in cooler that comes with it. Ice up to six cans of your favorite beverage while you dine on barbecue before the next Raiders game.

Soft-sided Cooler

Soft-sided Cooler

The bags’s antimicrobial liner fights mold and mildew while the cooling technology keeps your goodies frosty for up to 24 hours. Amazon

Compared to concession prices at Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum, this soft-sided cooler and lunch bag seems like such a bargain. It can accommodate up to nine cans, and thanks to Coleman technology, this must-have tailgating cooler keeps food and drinks cold up to 24 hours – enough to survive a full day of NFL action.

Golf Club Headcovers

Golf Club Headcovers

The covers fit all oversized drivers and feature a nylon sock and velour lining to project the club shafts from damage. Amazon

If there’s anything as sacred as 60 minutes of Raiders football, it’s 18 holes of golf on the day before or after a game. Keep the ball on the fairway with these Raiders-themed golf club headcovers.
