Our consignor contacted me saying that they had an 80 pound book that might fit in our auction. I could not even fathom a book of that size.  As we talked further I began to realize that this 80 pounds of book is the the most incredible Super Bowl era collection of information, interviews, photographs and signatures ever assembled.

The title of the book is the Super Bowl XL Opus. The 850 page massive book (20" x 20" pages) chronicles each Super Bowl (through XL) with player's accounts, contemporary reporting, detailed drive charts and incredible photographs (over 1400). 20,000 books were produced; but the signed version (MVP Edition) was limited to 400 copies and is autographed by every living MVP from each Super Bowl (Bart Starr, Joe Namath, Len Dawson, Chuck Howley, Roger Staubach, Jake Scott, Franco Harris, Lynn Swann, Fred Biletnikoff, Randy White, Terry Bradshaw, Jim Plunkett, Joe Montana, John Riggins, Marcus Allen, Richard Dent, Doug Williams, Phil Simms, Jery Rice, Ottis Anderson, Mark Rypien, Troy Aikman, Emmitt Smith, Steve Young, Larry Brown, Desmond Howard, Terrell Davis, John Elway, Kurt Warner, Ray Lewis, Tom Brady, Dexter Jackson, Deion Branch, Hines Ward). The offered specimen is a MVP version numbered 46/400.

The book is protected by a wood clam-shell and silk covered case. It also comes with white gloves!  Seldom offered; and without a doubt a necessity for the serious Super Bowl collector. Due to the weight of this lot actual shipping costs will apply.
