Although the merger between the AFL and the NFL had already been arranged, purists from the elder league as well as many casual fans felt that the AFL's best was still no competition for the NFL. Joe Namath and the New York Jets felt otherwise; with Namath boldly guaranteeing a victory during the week leading up to the Super Bowl 3. The Jets defeated the heavily favored Colts 16 to 7, legitimizing the AFL and the upcoming merger of the two leagues.

Offered here is a stub from the historic game; still referred to on the ticket as the "Third World Championship Game". The specimen presents nicely with a horizontal crease below the football of the Lombardi Trophy. The stub has been authenticated by SGC.
