After the completion of Super Bowl 58, either the Kansas City Chiefs or the San Francisco 49ers will be raising the Lombardi Trophy.
The trophy, named after legendary Green Bay Packers head coach Vince Lombardi, isn’t the easiest trophy to raise. The sterling silver trophy weighs about seven pounds, which equals about 107 ounces or 3.2 kilograms.
To put that into perspective, that is similar to holding a newborn baby, a lightweight laptop or a compact bowling ball. All are things, like the Lombardi Trophy, that aren’t heavy, but you wouldn’t want to drop them.
After the Tampa Bay Buccaneers defeated the Chiefs in the Super Bowl in 2021, Tom Brady made the trophy look light when he tossed it to a separate boat into the waiting hands of a teammate.
Unlike the Stanley Cup, which is passed between each winning team, the Super Bowl-winning team gets to keep their trophy and a new one is made each year. Despite that, the trophy toss generated controversy, with Brady admitting he was drunk and barely remembered doing it.
The 22-inch tall trophy was first named the Lombardi Trophy in 1970 after Vince Lombardi died. It was first used in 1967 for Super Bowl I in a matchup between the Packers and Chiefs.
Lombardi won five NFL championships, including the first two Super Bowls.
