Who are you rooting for in this Super Bowl?

Show who you want to win, via coins.

49ers- several possibilities

-1849 dated coins
-California Gold Rush Issues
-If you don’t have those, anything minted in San Fran?


-Any design with an Indian on it, I guess?

  • feel free to improvise if you have another idea

I’ll go first:

However, I don’t know if the “script” will allow for a Swiftie SuperBowl loss, so my money will probably be on the chiefs 😂.

    Oh, you're talking about the cheap seats. Think of the coin or coins you could buy and watch the game on tv.

    No option for a coin featuring a fast runner, for those rooting for Taylor Swift (fast)? 😉

    I like both teams for the most part, but the KC thing is getting old, and being West Coast, and that I like a lot of the SF players including Brock and CMC, so ...

    No Taylor Swift, that's for sure.......and I'll pass on the half time show also. (grumpy old man here!!)

    Neither team but will take for SF tired of seen the same teams win Super Bowls. Brady kinda did that to me and now Mahomes.

    Sports: NHL & NFL

    Thank you Lord for another beautiful day!!!

    Having lived in the SF bay area and also having lived in the KC metro area, I will be searching ebay for auctions ending during the game....I will just put the game on mute, listen to music and search, search, search.

    With coins, who has time for the Super Bowl?

    Coins and smooth Hennessy, neat. Pay bills with what's left, fwiw (nothing)

    That is a fantastic guess but not correct. It's a pretty large buy-in so myself and a few friends pooled up. We are Quads in the squares.

    I don’t have any emotional attachment to either one. Baltimore, because of the many coin shows and youthful attraction to the one time Baltimore Colts, would have been a favorite. Detroit, because they have not won since 1957, would have been the other. I guess my choice will be San Francisco by default.

    My daughter and wife will be watching the Super Bowl for the very first time. Guess why?

    Since the Chiefs beat the Ravens, I have no preference for who wins the Usher performance, at which I understand Taylor Swift’s boyfriend will likely be playing. If arm twisting were employed, I’d have to go with…

    Don’t have a rooting interest but my household (two young girls) is pro-Taylor so go Chiefs!

    Of course there's someone in this thread that has to pee all over the floor.

    Maybe there are no other bookish types out there, like me, not interested much in professional sports.

    I’m rooting for a tie with it going to 13 overtime periods when I’ll be asleep.

    Q: When does a collector become a numismatist?

    A: The year they spend more on their library than their coin collection.

    A numismatist is judged more on the content of their library than the content of their cabinet.
