“Pin-Up” of the Week: 2015 Super Bowl XLIX Host Committee Pin

Will Johnny Manziel be the #1 draft pick?  Could the Dolphins have another perfect season?  Will Ryan Leaf make a comeback and quarterback for the Raiders?  Nobody knows the answers to these questions.  All we know for sure is that Super Bowl XLIX will be played on February 1, 2015 at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, AZ.

The Super Bowl is all about merchandising.  The second that clock hits 0:00 QVC and HSN can’t start selling the winning team’s stuff fast enough.  There isn’t much merchandise for Super Bowl XLIX right now, but I’m sure it’ll come.  The only item available now is this host committee pin which isn’t sold to the public.  You’ve gotta know the friend of a friend who’s father is probably high up at the NFL.  Or you could buy one on eBay.  They are currently selling for $20.00 – $30.00.

“Pin-Up” of the Week: Super Bowl XLVIII – Host Committee 1-28-14 – Media Party Pin

If you were lucky enough to make it into the Super Bowl XLVIII Media Party that took place last Tuesday, you know all about this pin.  Individuals that were allowed in, got one of these exclusive pins.  They’re one of the more in demand pins that collectors can obtain since these weren’t sold in retail gift shops.  Most of them sell for between $30.00 and $50.00.

The Super Bowl is one of the most merchandised sporting events.  Given its location this year, you can definitely see that.  Even though the actual game takes place in New Jersey, New York is making out well.  Macy’s Herald Square in New York City created an entire lineup of pins to giveaway leading up to this year’s Super Bowl.  The lines are quite long, but collectors do love their pins.  Not to mention most of the Macy’s Limited Edition pins are selling for $45.00 a piece.

Flashback Product of the Week: 1991 Topps Stadium Club Super Bowl XXVI Set

Attendees to Super Bowl XXVI were greeted with a small cleared coated pack containing five 1991 Topps Stadium Club football cards.  At first glance these cards look identical to the ones you would pull from a standard pack.  But upon further inspection you’ll see an embossed Super Bowl XXVI logo in the upper right corner.  Topps reprinted 300 cards from their regular set and decided to create a nice little souvenir for the fans.  The 300 cards aren’t exactly the first 300 cards out of the 500 card 1991 Topps Stadium Club set either.  Topps jumped around.

1991 Topps Stadium Club football is known for a lot of things – great photography, star players, and for having one of Brett Favre’s most popular rookie cards.  Luckily for Favre collectors Topps picked his rookie as one of the cards to include within the Super Bowl XXVI promo set.  At the time these packs were distributed, Favre wasn’t on everyone’s radar.  In fact, he just finished his stint with the Falcons.  As the 90’s progressed, Favre’s stock began to rise along with the price of his rookies.  His Super Bowl XXVI embossed rookie is very desirable, especially examples that are in gem mint condition.  When these packs were distributed to fans, they would throw them in their pocket and the cards would easily get damaged.  If your in the market for one, I’d personally buy one that’s either certified or graded.  Many scammers have taken a regular Favre rookie and embossed it themselves.  All of these cards from the Super Bowl XXVI promo set hold a slight premium over the standard issued cards.  The Favre is by far the most valuable.

Sealed packs can still be purchased today for $10.00.  Expect to pay more if one of the key cards is visible.
