It’s getting to become a habit. New Kansas City Chiefs Super Bowl championship memorabilia on sale in February. Seconds after wrapping up their third Super Bowl title in the past five seasons, items commemorating the title were available online.
Patrick Mahomes, who won’t turn 29 until the Chief’s three-peat effort is underway months from now, completed 34 of 46 passes for 333 yards and rushing for 66 more, rallying KC to a 25-22 win in Las Vegas. The Chiefs’ road wasn’t easy. They had the hardest postseason path to a title in NFL history, based on the regular-season metrics of their opponents.
Mahomes autographs are approaching Tom Brady territory, with Fanatics offering a signed Super Bowl 58 football for $1,999, just $200 less than what the company has priced its Brady signed footballs. Some have the date stamp and a Las Vegas logo. Mahomes joined Brady and Hall of Famer Joe Montana Sunday night with his third MVP award.
Mahomes will also sign Super Bowl LVIII helmets–both the standard kind and the mini-helmets (the latter priced at $1,299). Framed Mahomes and Mahomes/Kelce signed photos from the game run a little more.
If you’re into something of the deluxe variety, Fanatics is also offering a shadow box with game details surrounding autographed footballs from Mahomes and his favorite target, Travis Kelce.
Those autograph deals are arranged ahead of time, with a signing session likely to happen in the coming days or weeks. A limited number of the non-regular Super Bowl items means they are not likely to last long in the pre-order.
Fanatics appears to have a deal in place with rookie receiver Rashee Rice.
For those who are on a more limited budget, but want something from the overtime thriller, there is a display piece with confetti that fell from the roof in the postgame celebration and a variety of photos and collages with game info.
Interestingly, Fanatics–which has been battling it out in court with Panini America on a variety of fronts–is also offering a display with eight Panini made 2023 Donruss Chiefs football cards for $49.99.
On Monday afternoon, Panini announced it would be pushing out a 36-card boxed set of cards, as is the custom each year.
And yes, they’re still making Super Bowl programs, with stadium versions available for around 25 bucks.
