The Super Bowl LI program (that’s “51” for those who don’t do Roman numerals) is ready for sale.
Printed the day after the NFL’s conference championship games at Quad/Graphics’ printing plate in the tiny town of Lomira, WI, the programs are once again giant sized and probably among the best, most affordable pieces of Super Bowl memorabilia. Quad/Graphics has printed the Super Bowl program for over 20 years.
A game program has been printed for each of the games played to date, beginning with Super Bowl I in Los Angeles back in January of 1967. The earliest editions have become sought after collectibles. They were sold only at the stadium and those from the first three games sell for several hundred dollars in good condition. Later editions have been widely distributed and collecting a complete run of Super Bowl programs is a goal within reach of most collectors.
The Super Bowl 51 edition again tops 200 pages. It offers in-depth analysis of the Patriots and Falcons, team rosters and player photos, a review of the 2016 season, game-by-game history of the Super Bowl, and more than a dozen feature stories written by some of the country’s top writers.
Two versions are created: a National edition that will likely have a bar code on the front and a Stadium edition, which will have a holographic cover and cost a few dollars more. Distribution of the Stadium issue was once generally confined to the host city but is now available online.
