What’s It Like To Lift The Vince Lombardi Trophy?
We all know what the Vince Lombardi Trophy looks like. The silver statue is synonymous with the NFL, the Super Bowl, and national victory, and most football fans probably wonder what it would be like to actually play a part in winning it for their favorite team. So what’s it like to actually hold the trophy? While there are a number of opportunities to see a Vince Lombardi Trophy, most of us will simply have to imagine the feeling of lifting it upon victory. And to do that, it helps to know how much it weighs, what it’s made from, and even a little bit of the history that has contributed to its significance as a historic football award.
“The trophy is a regulation-size silver football mounted in a kicking position on a pyramidlike stand of three concave sides,’ according to the Super Bowl media guide. It is 20 3/4 inches tall and weighs just more than 6.7 pounds. It is valued in excess of $25,000. Engraved on the base are the words Vince Lombardi and Super Bowl XLIX along with the NFL shield.”
