Having helped put the NFL on the map (not to mention television sets across the nation), the Baltimore Colts were heralded for their 1958 and 1959 championship efforts. One decade later, the franchise was involved in two more memorable title clashes as the game and its popularity had grown leaps and bounds. Issued at Miamiís Orange Bowl, these gameday programs hail from:
Super Bowl III a 120-page guide from arguably the biggest upset in NFL annals. On crisp interior pages, the publication details the season-long efforts of the Colts and Jets combatants, as well as summaries for the ďalso-ranĒ teams. A nice mix of color and black-and-white photos and illustrations make this an eye-appealing issue. The covers remain intact and crease-free, with very minor evidence of handling and edge wear.
Super Bowl V a 100-page program from the title tilt to wrap up the first year following the NFL-AFL merger. Crisp pages detail stars and highlights, while a 36-page section chronicles the season in week by week form. Covers/pages remain intact with minimal handling evidence on the front cover.
