Super Bowl Field Database (1958 NFL Championship Game)

I know it's very monochromatic, but I like this version of a Bears endzone in Super Bowl XX instead of a Red-Orange background.  Gives more contrast to the field:

The Chiefs are having a throwback day this week and got inspiration from their Super Bowl end zone. Reports say the old Municipal Stadium end zone is the inspiration, but this was their SB I end zone first.

There's no yellow paint in the Muni end zones in the Chiefs' 1966 highlight film:

I was hoping the chiefs go back to the end of the Montana era field art

Slight difference in the wordmark actually. The C and S had curved ends in Super Bowl I:

As opposed to the straight ends Sunday:

Sundays wordmark may be closer to what they had in Super Bowl IV, or on their field in the late 60's / early 70's:

Now, it could match better to one of their fields from '63-'67, but I'm not sure if I've seen too much video for that, other that what you've linked above.

I started thinking more and more about what the league will do with the field in Super Bowl LIV, because I think they have to use the 100 Anniversary logo, the Super Bowl logo, AND the actual NFL logo.  If the NFL logo stays at the 50, and the Super Bowl logo at the 25, it seems like the 100th Anniversary logo is destined for the endzones. 

 

The Seahawks have put the 100th anniversary logo in their endzone and as we found out, the league is leaning on what team's do on their home field.  I'm wondering if the 100th anniversary logo gets put into the endzone for SBLIV.  Spacing would need to be fixed, but I don't know if they care.  Just something to chew for the regular season.

You make a good point. I was also wondering what they'd do, since we haven't seen the NFL 100 logo at midfield for any team this year, and, it looks like the regular NFL logo will be at midfield for the game in London this weekend.

 

So I think you're on the right track. I can see the normal NFL logo at midfield, Super Bowl Logo at the 25s, and then I would think each teams wordmark centered in the endzeon, with their team logo on the left, and the NFL 100 logo on the right. Unless of course the team that makes it to the Super Bowl typically displays their team logo right of their wordmark (Seahawks, Jets), then I could see the NFL 100 logo on the other side. 

 

It'll be interesting to see. I believe the teams get some say in their endzone. Last year the Rams used their helmet logo and gold endzones to match their uniforms, but their endzeon did not include the NFC logo, like they have at their home field. The Patriots since Super Bowl LI have shifted from their home field endzones (like in Super Bowl XLIX) to having thier logo on the left.

 

I'm hoping for the best. Maybe two teams who have taller wormarks as opposed to wider ones. I am excited that the game will be played on grass this year, for only the 3rd time since the switch to templated Super Bowl logos. Super Bowl fields just look so much better on grass.

Not a Super Bowl, but I figured this would be the best place to put NFL Championship Game Fields.

@SFCOM1 has also re-created a couple of NFL championship games, which can be seen here:

Seeing the 1958 NFL Championship made me try my hand at the 1966 NFL Championship

Could you try hosting the image on a different site? Photobucket isn't an actual image hosting site anymore, just a blurry advertisement for itself.

 

From what I can kind of see, looks pretty good. Kind of a precursor to the Super Bowl I field, with the alternating colors on the number markers, and block letter endzones. Distinctly a 1960's era field.

Done.  Re-added from another photo site.  I'll try to add others I've done later.
