Awarded to the winner of the Super Bowl, the Vince Lombardi Trophy was originally called something else. In 1967 and then again 1968, the Green Bay Packers won the AFL-NFL World Championship Game, and the trophy awarded to them was called the "World Professional Football Championship". In 1970, the trophy became the Vince Lombardi Trophy to commemorate the coach who led his team to two consecutive championships, and thus began a five-decade tradition. If you are looking to start a football trophy tradition, consider our Crystal Football (item CRY341). This fantastic football trophy stands over a half foot tall. Created with stunning details, the crystal football rests on an ebony base as if teed up for kickoff. The base acts as an engraving plate, and our highly skilled technicians will use laser technology to engrave up to three lines of type onto the plate. Wonderful as a tournament award, this stylish tribute would also make a great award for individual achievements on the gridiron.
