Have you ever seen a complete run of Super Bowl programs? From the first one, held in Los Angeles in January of 1967 (when it was called the ‘NFL/AFL world Championship Game’) to the one held in Indianapolis last February?
How about a complete run of programs signed by the MVPs of each game?
Ken Gardner of Kid Cannon Sports in Fremont, CA has one. He was at the National Sports Collectors Convention last week, showing off all 46 publications, each carrying the autographs of the MVP from that particular game.
He’s got a beautiful Bart Starr Super Bowl I, signed in silver Sharpie and just recently snared a Super Bowl XLVI issue bearing the autograph of Eli Manning, who led the Giants to another championship.
The list of Super Bowl MVPs is a long one. Some are legends, but others have faded from view.
If you think the price is too steep, you try it. We talked with Ken about his long-running quest that is now a little easier to continue.
