    ....a picture or video of the Super Bowl III trophy presentation? I’ve scoured the internet and can’t find any photos of Rozelle presenting the trophy to Ewbank and/or the owners. Anyone have one?

    Did you know that the trophy was actually left behind by the Jets in the locker room? I remember reading that somewhere. They forgot to take it with them when the left the Orange Bowl. I’m not sure whether they realized it while boarding the plane on the tarmac or if they realized it while in the air and had to send a team rep back to Miami to retrieve it. I want to say it was before the plane took off.....

    Only the Jets....

    If you caught wind of the party Joe Willie had planned, I doubt you would've been worried about a silly trophy either.

    @Wahoo - I think I found one.

    It’s a little strange - there are photos of Rozelle presenting the trophy to Lombardi, and even photos of him presenting it to Lamar Hunt and Hank Stram, but apparently none of the presentation of the trophy to the Jets brass.

    Yeah I searched myself I couldn’t find anything. I did see locker room pictures after the game - mainly a smiling bare chested Namath standing with his father and Weeb on both sides in a celebratory stance. No pictures of Rozelle or the trophy that day....

    Because it NEVER HAPPENED.

    Come on, we’ve all seen this team for years, decades even. Does anyone really believe they could get out of their own way long enough to actually WIN the Super Bowl?!

    It’s fake and all the pictures are fake and the video is fake. They just forgot to do the fake Rozelle pic.

    NEVER HAPPENED.

    Maybe the trophy was sent along on the first moon landing!

    I came across a photo of Lombardi getting the trophy from Rozelle and I starting looking for the SB III presentation ceremony and couldn’t find any pictures or video on it so I became curious and wanted to see if anyone else had some. I just think it’s strange that it seems none exist

    The Earth is flat, we never landed on the Moon and Elvis is still alive on Proxima Centauri.

    I have to say this is a subject that has never been talked about here - not that I can recall. Even the video of the game circulating ( I have a copy ) cuts out after the players run off the field.

    Im sure there are old timers here who watched the game live and saw the trophy presentation afterwards........anybody?

    For what it's worth I emailed the Jets and NFL Films. I doubt they'll respond but I'll let everyone know what they get back to me with.

    There was no presentation ceremony, no press conference, no photo op, just as there was none in the first two. The trophy just got handed to somebody in the locker room. Maybe before the locker room was even open to the press.

    Jerry Izenberg at the Star-Ledger is over ninety and has been covering the Jets forever. He was probably in the locker room and might have seen how it went and have a lead on anyone with a picture.

    [He was there - 50 years ago, Jets made history in Super Bowl III ... and I remember it like it was yesterday | Izenberg - nj.com]

    I guess there was no actual ceremony, but there is a photo of Rozelle handing the trophy to Lombardi. Didn’t do it for the AFL winners I guess?

    It was actually left in a safe at the hotel they stayed at and assistant equipment manager Mickey Rendine brought the trophy home on a later flight.
