Fans lined up to catch a glimpse of the Vince Lombardi trophy at the Super Bowl Experience.  Fans who purchased tickets to the Super Bowl Experience, then register for the Fan Mobile Pass, are able to take a photo with the trophy.  The Lombardi trophy at the Super Bowl Experience is the real deal, the actual trophy awarded to the winning Super Bowl team. The Fan Pass has been sold out.

In professional football, the Vince Lombardi Super Bowl Trophy marks the pinnacle of gridiron glory. Tiffany & Co. has produced the coveted trophy since the first Super Bowl in 1967. In 1970 the trophy was renamed for Vince Lombardi, the late Green Bay Packers coach who led the Packers to victories in the first two Super Bowls. The design features a regulation-size football in kicking position, according to the Tiffany & Co.website.

The names of Super Bowl winners are hand-carved on the trophy.

Fan Pass holders are also able to view all 51 championship rings close up with a magnifying glass. The rings increase in diamonds as the years pass from the first Super Bowl ring to present rings.
