“Pin-Up” of the Week: Super Bowl VII Press Pin

Its not much to look at, but this is the pin that was given to members of the media that were covering Super Bowl VII.  As you can see, its just a basic helmet with the NFL logo on the side.  They certainly don’t make them this subtle anymore.  Don’t let its simple design fool you.  These are rare to come by.  When one is available for sale, the asking price is usually around $300.00 or $400.00.  If you’re in the market to purchase one of these pins, be careful.  The Super Bowl VI press pin looks very similar, except for a few minor differences.

Super Bowl VII took place on 1/14/73 between the Miami Dolphins and Washington Redskins.  Miami won 14-7, while making their mark in history going the entire season undefeated.  No other team since then has gone undefeated.  It is a record that will likely never be broken.

So far the Dolphins are having a great season.  They’re currently 2-0, which is something they haven’t been many times within the last ten years.  That new logo seems to be working for them.
