“38 Years of Super Bowl Memories” on display during the months of January and February.
Bristol resident, David Reynolds, has been
collecting Super Bowl programs for the last
29 years. Although he
has never been to a Super Bowl himself, David’s super
collection consists of
42 programs: 38 original and 4 special editions.
The first ten editions were the hardest for him to find, while the others were purchased from ads or
given as gifts.
Approximately ninety-five percent of the
collection is in mint condition, including the
from Super Bowl V. This
edition is rumored to be valuable because a truck over
turned and copies were lost in the snow.
David and his wife have been collecting many types of memorabilia
for years and now
their own store in Orwell.
This rare and stunning collection has only
been on display once
before, and that was in Florida.
Do you know the only year you can tell at a glance, which two teams

did the trophy first appear on the cover?
Come see this SUPER display today.
