Sporting Charts explains Vince Lombardi Trophy

Prior to 1970 the trophy was known as the world championship trophy and inscribed "World Championship Football". After the name change in 1970 the inscription was changed to "Vince Lombardi Trophy" and the roman numeral of the precise year won. Once the trophy is won it is sent back to be further engraved to list the names of the participating teams, date, location and the final score. From there the trophy is sent back to the winning team who will permanently maintain possession of the  trophy. A new trophy is created every year by Tiffany and Co. in New Jersey. The trophy is made entirely of sterling silver and stands 22in. tall and weighs 7lbs depicting a regular size football in kicking position.
