Super Bowl Trophies Come To Sacramento

Monday, hundreds of Oakland Raiders and San Francisco 49ers fans took advantage of an opportunity to see all of the Super Bowl trophies their teams have won.

This is the first year the National Football League has taken any Vince Lombardi trophy on the road, much less eight of them.

Edith Lemus now has a picture of herself in front of the 49ers' five trophies, and a picture and an autograph from Willie Harper -a linebacker on the team that won its first Super Bowl in 1982.     

"I'm a Niners diehard since 1979," said Lemus. "I go to the games, I go to tailgates and I'm a Niners faithful for life."

On the other side of the traveling display, Marcos Rodriguez posed for pictures and looked at old films of the Raiders' three championships.

"Actually, it's chilling. I got a little bit of goose bumps just from seeing it. I've never seen anything like this. I'm pretty sure my dad hasn't seen any of this, not in person. It's kind of a big deal. It's an experience I'm always going to remember."

This was the last of 22 stops for the trophy tour. Super Bowl 50  will be held February 7 in Santa Clara.
