Fun With Super Bowl Winning Quarterbacks

The list of Super Bowl winning quarterbacks is growing. We’ve got lists and trivia out the wazoo…even a link to some Super Bowl championship memorabilia and 2008 Super Bowl tickets and Super Bowl ticket packages.

Going to the Super Bowl, is of course, the ultimate trip for any sports fan. Not everyone is so lucky, but collectors who like ‘themes’ usually love the Super Bowl.

You can chase autographs of the Super Bowl MVPs dating back to Bart Starr and Len Dawson, both of whom are, thankfully, still around and quite active. 21 of the 41 Super Bowl MVPs have been quarterbacks. Joe Montana leads the way with three.

You can grab a run of Super Bowl ticket stubs and even unused tickets or game programs. You can collect cards or autographs from quarterbacks who have won the Super Bowl. It’s a once-in-a-career accomplishment for some players. For others, it gets to be habit–and a ticket to the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

‘Super Bowl winning quarterback’ is a phrase that can make a player’s entire career.

  1. I think on of the most amazing stats not mentioned is that Joe Montana won Superbowls 8 years apart. That says a lot about the coaches and the quarterback (plus Jerry Rice of course!) because teams change a lot of players over that kind of a time period in football.
