In 1970, the NFL Championship Trophy was officially renamed the Vince Lombardi Trophy, in honor of the coach who won the first two Superbowls. The Vince Lombardi Trophy is made by Tiffany & Co., and, according to Wikipedia, it “is valued at $50,000, and depicts a regulation-size football in kicking position that is made entirely of sterling silver, standing 22 inches (56 cm) tall, weighing 7 pounds (3.2 kg), it takes approximately four months and 72 man-hours to create.”
Are those 72 hours well spent? Compare the image of the Lombardi trophy below with some other trophies of the world and let us know what you think.
