Trophy measures approximately 15.5″ high and 7″ deep and weighs 6.0 lbs. Upon the front is engraved, “Vince Lombardi Trophy / Super Bowl / XXX / Champions / The Dallas Cowboys” and, along the side column, “Godfrey Myles / 98”. Good condition with minor chipping. A stunning display of athletic achievement, from the team that sets the record for most Super Bowl appearances. With Certificate of Authenticity from Godfrey Myles.

Silver-plated trophy was ordered by Raiders owner Al Davis for each of his players, the first time Vince Lombardi replica trophies had been given to individual team members. A small handful of owners have since followed Davis’ example, making these player trophies exceedingly rare, even more so one owned by standout player John Matuszak. This trophy made by R.S. Owens & Co. is the three-quartered size version of the Tiffany made Vince Lombardi trophy (the larger of the two), and measures 18″ tall, situated on a triangular base measuring about 9″ on each side. Engraved upon the column reads, “Vince Lombardi Trophy / [NFL logo] / Super Bowl XI / AFC vs NFC”. Upon the base is an engraved silver plate which reads, “The Oakland Raiders / World Champions / John Matuszak / Oakland 32 – Minnesota 14 / January 9, 1977”. In very good condition with only some cleaning needed to the silver plating. Trophy accompanied by certificate of authenticity by Matuszak’s sister.
