Today a new Super Bowl Champion will be crowned and the team that wins the game receives the Super Bowl Trophy, known as the Vince Lombardi Trophy. Each year a new trophy is made for the winning team and they keep it forever. The Vince Lombardi Trophy is seven pounds of sterling silver and the silver has a value of $3,500 but the actual worth of the trophy, because of what it symbolizes, is hard to determine. The same company has hand made all the Super Bowl Trophies since 1967, Tiffany’s jewelry company in New Jersey.

NFL commissioner Pete Rozelle, who has passed away, was the one who designed it (legend says on a napkin) and the rest is history. The process of making the Vince Lombardi Trophy begins four months before the Super Bowl with techniques used by craftsmen from the 1800’s. The trophy makes a trip to the Hall of Fame before it’s sent back to the factory for a polishing before it goes to the big game. Tiffany’s gets the trophy back one more time after the game for another polishing and the final engraving of the winning team’s name. Tiffany’s says the one thing that really affects the looks of the trophy and makes it hard to polish is the champagne the winning team uses to celebrate. The biggest champagne offender in the 46 year history of the trophy was the New Orleans Saints when they won the Super Bowl in 2010.
