Lost Super Bowl I Tape Found


We all know the Kansas City Chiefs played the Green Bay Packers in Super Bowl I but most of us have never actually watched tape of the game. That is because until recently, there was no known footage of the game.

Until now.

The game, which took place on January 15th, 1967, was broadcast live on CBS and NBC but neither network preserved a copy of the broadcast. The Chiefs would go on to lose the game 35-10 to Vince Lombardi’s Packers. The Chiefs would return to the big game in Super Bowl IV and knock off the Minnesota Vikings.

According to the Wall Street Journal, a man from Pennsylvania has come forward with a tape of the game. Apparently his father shot the footage hoping that the tape would someday be worth money. The article goes on to say that the tape could be valued at around a million dollars, although the NFL claims to still hold the copyright so there could be some some legal issues to work out.

The tape has been restored. The quality, as you can imagine, isn’t great and there are some parts missing. The owner is hanging on to the footage as he tries to sort out the legal issues.
