Finishing touches are being applied and the official Super Bowl 50 game program will be printed and readied for sale as the latest edition of the NFL championship approaches.
Since the first game in Los Angeles in 1967, programs have always been among the most popular of all memorabilia from the Super Bowl game.
This year’s edition once again comes in at least two different versions: a national edition that usually has a bar code on the front and the most valued type—the one with a holographic cover that will be sold at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, CA; the home of Super Bowl 50. The holographic version is more expensive.
You can find both for sale here and here.
The 312-page program includes in-depth analysis of the Broncos and Panthers including rosters and depth charts, a look back at the 2015 season, game-by-game history of the Super Bowl dating back to the first one between the Packers and Chiefs and more than a dozen feature stories. This year’s features include a trip through the years showing how the Super Bowl evolved from an experiment in the first years of the AFL-NFL merger to a week’s worth of activities capped by a game that is now viewed worldwide.
Other stories tell the tales of those who’ve attended every Super Bowl, ask who is the greatest Super Bowl-winning quarterback of all time, pick out the seminal moments in Super Bowl history, and examine the important role that cornerbacks play in today’s pass-oriented game.
The Super Bowl 50 game day programs were printed immediately after the conclusion of the Conference Championship games at a facility in Wisconsin.
