    Population two, none finer!

    1967 Super Bowl I Full Ticket PSA NM-MT 8.
    Super Bowl Sunday is second only to Thanksgiving for American food consumption, and first by far in television viewership. The halftime show is a multi-million dollar spectacle of Grammy-award winning music acts, choreography of thousands, and dazzling lights and pyrotechnics. The cost of a thirty-second commercial spot runs into the millions of dollars.

    So one can't help but marvel how far the contest has come since its humble beginning, when Super Bowl I failed to sell out the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, and the halftime show consisted of two college marching bands and a high school drill team. This was no spectacle--it was a simple grudge match. After six seasons of uneasy coexistence within the professional American football marketplace, the AFL and NFL would finally meet in battle, each looking to prove the point of which they were certain. For the AFL, the game was an opportunity to silence the prevailing voices that the league was decidedly inferior to the entrenched NFL. Vince Lombardi's Packers, conversely, were anxious to prove those doubters right.

    Many football fans, however, gave the matter a collective shrug of the shoulders, seeing it as nothing more than a meaningless exhibition with an entirely predictable conclusion. And ultimately, the Green Bay Packers would assert their clear dominance over the AFL Champion Kansas City Chiefs, pulling away after halftime with twenty-one unanswered points to complete a thirty-five to ten victory. After the game, Coach Lombardi echoed the common sentiment: "I do not think they are as good as the top teams in the National Football League."

    One might naturally assume that the fan complacency, so clearly misguided in hindsight, would have resulted in the survival of a glut of unused tickets to participate in the collecting hobby, but a quick glance at the PSA population report will correct that misconception. Only forty-four examples exist in any state of condition, with this glorious example sharing the top ranking with just one other representation. This is, quite simply, the finest example available of the sport's most significant ticket.
