Super Bowl I: 50th Anniversary

On Jan. 15, 1967, the Green Bay Packers played the Kansas City Chiefs in the first AFL-NFL World Championship Game, known retroactively as Super Bowl I. Despite ticket prices of $6, $10, and $12, more than 30,000 seats at the Los Angeles Coliseum went empty for the “world championship.”  The Packers won 35-10, with Bart Starr's 250 yards passing and two touchdowns, both to Max McGee, earning him the MVP. In celebration of its 50th anniversary, here are SI's best photos from the first Super Bowl.
