Super Bowl Cap WITH A PRECIOUS PIN
EMBELLISHED WITH SWAROVSKI GENUINE GEMSTONES
The 2018 Super Bowl L11, that battle of attrition that saw the Philadelphia Eagles triumph over the New England Patriots to run out with a 41:33 victory on Sunday, February 4, is one of the hallmark annual events on the US sporting calendar. Indeed, the National Football League (NFL) final is one that that grips the US every year. It is first class entertainment on and off the field, and the headline performer in 2018 was none other than Justin Timberlake. And this year, a very special souvenir of the final came with glittering Gemstones from Swarovski.
For those who wanted to mark the occasion with something extraordinary, there was the very limited edition sports cap, the ‘NFL9Fifty with Swarovski Gemstones’. One of just five styles as part of New Era’s Super Bowl LII limited edition releases – and limited to only 12 in number, these 100% cashmere, black caps came with an embroidered Super Bowl LII logo on the side. But what raised the bar was the NFL pin, generously embellished with genuine 0.90mm top red rubies and top blue sapphires of the same size, naturally all Gemstones from Swarovski.
The pin, sterling silver with white rhodium plating was a collaborative effort. New Era provided the overall dimensions and the NFL logo, and Swarovski came up with concepts that fitted the parameters. At $5,252 (€4,243) each, these caps, with their glittering pins were souvenirs so valuable they almost required a security detail, but for the lucky few, they were undoubtedly an impressive memento one of the USA’s most spectacular sporting occasions.
