Description

Subject to grueling conditions, extreme weather conditions at both ends of the thermometer and punishing blows from opponents, the NFL participant endures a career that averages just over three years. Thus, it stands to reason that the Vince Lombardi Trophy is far and away the most coveted prize for anyone who ever suits up for trench warfare. Offered is one such example: a Super Bowl XVII Vince Lombardi replica trophy. Bearing striking resemblance to the actual hardware, this gridiron heirloom is crafted from polished nickel and is secured to a triangular wooden base. All told, the 9-lb. piece measures 17”-tall with a silver-hued football accenting a lengthy shaft whose engravings proclaim the Sunday supremacy of the 1982 Washington Redskins. Flanking an NFL badge logo, the engravings read: “VINCE LOMBARDI TROPHY” and “SUPER BOWL XVII AFC vs NFC – Rose Bowl, Pasadena California January 30, 1983 – Washington Redskins 27 Miami Dolphins 17.” In avenging a Super Bowl loss to the same opponent 10 seasons earlier, the Redskins turned that day to John Riggins, whose 181 yards from scrimmage were more than Miami's entire team output. Certain to be the center attraction in virtually any setting, this represents arguably the sporting world's most readily recognized trophy. There is no way to identify the manufacturer because of stringent copyright laws in reproducing the trophy. Individual player trophies were discontinued in 1977 and the only legally made example today is the one crafted by Tiffany's for display in the winning team's trophy case. This will be as close as any of us mere mortals will ever get to obtaining the real thing. Don’t let this one slip away!
