Description

Super Bowl IX was a defensive connoisseur’s dream. The only scoring done in the first half came when Dwight White downed Minnesota Vikings’ quarterback Fran Tarkenton in the end zone for a safety 7:49 into the second period. The crowd of 80,997 eagerly awaited more offense before the Pittsburgh Steelers and Vikings made it out of the locker room on January 12, 1975. However, more of the same smash-mouth defense was to come, at least as far as the Steelers were concerned. Pittsburgh forced another break and took advantage on the half’s opening kickoff when Minnesota’s Bill Brown fumbled and Marv Kellum recovered for the Steelers to set up a Franco Harris touchdown run. Though the Vikings offense was put completely out of sorts that day, they still managed to make it into the end zone once, as the result of a blocked punt. That was all the scoring that the “Purple People Eaters” would get that day, and after Terry Bradshaw hit Larry Brown with a touchdown pass in the final period, it was lights-out for the Vikes team that managed to tally only 119 yards total offense, including a Super Bowl low of 17 rushing yards. By far the Steelers most dominating Super Bowl performance and the first time they won the biggest game in sports. It is obvious that every Pittsburgh fan in the world would love a ticket from that very game. Problem is, that proved to be easier said than done.
The New Orleans Super Dome was supposed to be ready to field the epic meeting between in 1975. The thought of a dry, clean playing surface looked great on paper. However, that never happened. As a result, that poses a real problem for Super Bowl ticket collectors. The temperature was only 46 degrees, the second coldest Super Bowl in history. As if that wasn’t enough, it was pouring rain the entire weekend of the big game. The field was muddy and slippery. So were the stands. The game’s behind-the-scenes organization wasn’t up to par either. Tickets were not being ripped on their perforations. Tulane University students, serving as attendants, were tearing the drenched, soiled vouchers any way they could, just to get the crowd ‘flowing’ to their seats. The only real clean tickets from the Steelers’ first Super Bowl win are unused, and those are virtually impossible to obtain. However, this unparallelled exemplar is presently available and more than ready to make its way into the lucky winning bidder’s dry home or office. It is quite apparent that this, clean unused ticket never made it near Tulane Stadium that dreary day. Brilliant colors, gloss and absolutely no water or dirt spots on this piece, graded PSA VG-EX 4. Minor corner wear is the only visible flaw on this gem.
