Which is Your Favorite Super Bowl Logo?

February 5, 2016

The logo for Super Bowl 50 is the first to eschew large Roman numerals in favor of plain digits, which is probably a good thing for many fans who are tired of deciphering long strings of letters to arrive at a simple number recognized by Americans for a game exclusively played in America.

That change, along with the decision to make Super Bowl logos from 2010 to the present silver representations of the Lombardi Trophy against a backdrop of whichever stadium hosts the NFL’s biggest annual game begs the question: which is your favorite Super Bowl logo?

The above image is a screenshot taken from SportsLogos.net; visit the site to see each logo up close. Do you prefer the amateurish look of the first few Super Bowl logos? As simple as they are, they somehow add a gritty, unadorned feel that represents the tough spirit of the sport.

How about the stylish fonts employed in the mid-to-late 70’s? Or the bold, regal Super Bowl logos of the 80’s?

Then we have the color-infused Super Bowl logos of the 90’s and 2000’s, which added to the by-then traditional red, white, and blue with oranges, yellows, and even a touch of green.

And then finally, the hood ornaments of the 2010’s. After the first, each is unoriginal yet somehow classy and distinct.

Personally, I like 1988’s logo for Super Bowl XXIII (23), though 2006’s logo for Super Bowl XLI (41) is a close second.

How about you? Which is your favorite Super Bowl logo, and why? Let us know in the comments!
