Description:
1968 Super Bowl II Gold Pendant - Gift from Vince Lombardi to Green Bay Packers' Wives. Vince Lombardi believed that behind every great football player was a great woman. Evidence of his philosophy is provided by this stunning 10 karat gold pendant, which was presented by the legendary coach to Green Bay Packers players' wives and girlfriends after his team defeated the Oakland Raiders in Super Bowl II.

The second of its kind we have ever seen, the 1.25" charm exhibits EX-MT quality, while it presents the Lombardi trophy prominently at the center. We must note that many people believe that the "Big Game" wasn't referred to as the "Super Bowl" until after the first two NFL/AFL championship games, but that is 100 percent incorrect. The fallacy most likely originates from people who have seen the first two Super Bowl programs and tickets (1967 and 1968) being referred to as "World Championship Game." Nevertheless, there are many examples from souvenirs and other artifacts dating to Super Bowl I and showing that it was widely referred to as the "Super Bowl." This offered original gold pendant is just one more example of that special time in National Football League history.
