Celebrate the Seahawks with a piece from the game!
The Seattle Seahawks defeated the Denver Broncos, 43-8, in Super Bowl XLVIII which was held on February 2, 2014, at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. This was the first time that the Super Bowl was played outdoors in a cold-weather city. The football used to make these cuff links was one of 120 used during the game and secured from the NFL.
The Super Bowl, whose original name was the AFL-NFL Championship Game, was the result of the 1966 NFL and AFL merger. In fact, the "Super Bowl" did not become the official title until its third year in 1970 even though the name had persisted since the merger agreement in which Lamar Hunt, the Chief's owner, accidentally coined the term. Hunt also initiated the use of Roman Numerals to number each game and this tradition started with Super Bowl V, the same game in which the Vince Lombardi Trophy was first awarded.
