Now an interesting question that may arise in the minds of NFL fans is why is the Super Bowl trophy is named as the Vince Lombardi trophy? It has been named after former Green Bay Packers coach Vince Lombardi, who died of cancer in 1970. He led the Packers to the first two Super Bowl wins in succession and in a bid to honor his legacy; the NFL decided to name it as the Vince Lombardi trophy.
After the winning team is awarded the Vince Lombardi trophy, it is then sent to Tiffany’s, where it is cleaned and engraved with the name of the recent winning team, the date of the game, and the final score of the Super Bowl.
The trophy was originally decided on a napkin in 1966 by Oscar Reidner, the then vice president of design at Tiffany & Co for the 1967 Super Bowl. The beautiful trophy which is in the shape of a football in a kicking position on a three-concave-sided stand weighs around 7 pounds and is 22 inches tall.
The Pittsburgh Steelers and New England Patriots each have six in their locker, whereas the San Francisco 49ers and Dallas Cowboys both have won five Super Bowl trophies each.
