Classic Super Bowl End Zone Concepts

Recommended Posts

I'm planning to do several sets of these. The Never-Beens, the "Been, But Didnt Play in the Eras", so on and so forth.

First set: The Never-Beens:

Nice. And I'm very glad you will not have to do one for the Saints.

Currently working on a Bucs creamsicle SBEZ, but I've come across 2 problems.

1. That era of Bucs football didn't have a team-specific wordmark. I know they used a generic "Tampa Bay" font in their home end zones, but that obviously wouldn't work for a SBEZ. I'm gonna use my imagination since these are just concepts, after all.

2. Back in those days I seem to recall them being in the AFC. When did They switch to NFC? Or am I just Wrong about the AFC thing?

The Bucs played their original season in the AFC west, then switched with the Seahawks after the season and moved to the NFC.

Thanks Ricky. Makes sense now, I just don't remember them sharing the same division as Denver. (Amazing, isn't it?) and I remember when Seattle was a division rival. Weird.

Anyways, here's my take on the non-wordmarked Bucs:

I did this a year or so ago, someone wanted it for a signature pic.

I really love these concepts. I had tried something like this, I just don't have the resources to try it.

Cant wait to see the Cowboys one.....I really miss these types of end zones.....they made the field stand out in the Super Bowl .........any reason why the No Fun Leauge got away from this?

6 of Dallas's Super Bowl appearances had the giant helmets in the endzones. (Only ones that didn't were 5 and 6 which had the logo in a small circle).

Phoenix (Yes, I said PHOENIX) Cardinals

As you can see, I'm not really going in any particular order.

This would have also doubled for when the Cardinals were in St. Louis, no?

Fantastic work!! Always dreamed in my head how these end zones would appear as a kid. Painted Super Bowl fields enjoyed their prime throughout the 1980's & 90's. Unfortunately, the last of the Super Bowl fields of the "prime age" appeared in 2001 when they painted the team colors around the "numbers" and the painted team color stripe on the 20's. Months before Super Bowl XLIV, I wrote George Toma requesting helmet end zones & team colored number outlines etc. Obviously it did not happen and Toma was involved at one time. Hopefully this will brought back ... By the way, this year was the worst as far as Super Bowl fields. When they painted the end zones under the canopy, they must of been mixed up with the Giant/Jet endzone logo alignments.

Hey, I didn't read the original post and spoke too soon. Will you do a "back in the day" version for the Saints?
