Lot 2038: Set of Super Bowl Programs I-XXXVIII
Auction Date:12/19/2004 9:00 PM EST
Near complete set of Super Bowl Programs is missing only #35 of the 38 games. Of notable interest to collectors, the programs from SBs I & II are EX, and after SB VI they are mostly NRMT. Only flaw is on #12 which has a tad of glue residue in the lower right corner. Overall average of the programs is NRMT. Great panorama of images from the host cities and depictions of some top stars grace these mementos fanning out from Vince Lombardi's Packers running roughshod over Kansas City and Oakland in the first 2 AFL-NFL World Championship Games (it wasn't officially called the "Super Bowl" until the '70s), Namath's "guaranteed" Jet win over the Colts in SB III, Bradshaw's aerials to the acrobatic Lynn Swann, Montana's perfection, "America's Team" of Landry and then Jimmy Johnson, Elway's resurrection, and Brady and Vinatieri lifting the Patriots to 2 titles in the last 3 years. Each program is a little piece of NFL history. All together, a parade of Americana.
