This is the Vince Lomturki Trophy
. You may recognize its resemblance to the Vince Lombardi Trophy,
which is awarded to the winners of the Super Bowl each year.
I work for a city recreation department, and one of the events I organize each year is a Thanksgiving flag football tournament, or "Turkey Bowl."
This year I decided we needed a trophy--a physical object teams could covet that would provide year-long bragging rights, and encourage cross-town trash talking between local rivalries. Plus, I wanted to start a tradition that would hopefully help perpetually grow the program.
A Lombardi-style trophy with turkey-ball on top seemed like the most logical mix between football and Thanksgiving I could come up with.
It is a traveling trophy of sorts, similar to hockey's Stanley Cup.
It is awarded to each year's tournament champions, and their team name is added by etching it onto an aluminum plate that is attached to the front of the base (not shown).
