Celebrating the 50th anniversary of America's greatest game. From its inauspicious beginnings as 'The First World Championship Game between the AFL and NFL' in 1967 to the raucous worldwide cultural event that was Super Bowl 50, Allan Maki and Dave Naylor count down the greatest moments in each staging of the first 50 Super Bowls. Be it Joe Namath's guaranteed victory in Super Bowl III or the Miami Dolphins' perfect ending in Super Bowl VII or David Tyree's helmet catch in Super Bowl XLII, all the iconic moments are recounted here, and more! MVP performances and game-changing plays are all included in this action packed book, filled with photos, informative stat boxes and essays that deliver a complete picture of how the biggest game in sport played out, year by year. One-name heroes like Brady, Montana and Bradshaw share top billing with lesser-known, big-time contributors, like: Max McGee, Timmy Smith and Rod Martin. And what compendium of Super Bowl stories would be complete without a mention of the media moments, famous commercials and controversial plays that sometimes shared centre stage with the on-field heroics? From the highest highs to the lowest lows, Maki and Naylor cover it all in 50 Super Bowls.
