FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
CASH4GOLD ESTIMATES MELT VALUE OF SUPER BOWL TROPHY AT $1,450
World’s Leading Mail-In Gold Buyer Congratulates the New Orleans Saints
Pompano Beach, Fla. – February 12, 2010 – Cash4Gold (www.Cash4Gold.com), the trusted industry leader in mail-in gold buying, congratulates the New Orleans Saints, who captured the 2010 Super Bowl title. Following the game, the victors hoisted the Vince Lombardi Trophy on the field in Miami before the energetic crowd and hundreds of millions of other people around the world watching on television.
The highly coveted seven-pound trophy is made entirely of sterling silver and stands at 22 inches tall. It is crafted in the image of a regulation-sized football perched on a solid base. Appraisers at Cash4Gold’s state-of-the-art processing facility in Florida have estimated the melt value of the trophy at $1,450 based upon the current price of silver, while recognizing that the trophy is in reality truly priceless.
Melt value refers only to the quantity of actual precious metals included in an item and does not account for artistic, historic, or sentimental value. In the case of the Super Bowl trophy, its fine craftsmanship, as well as its historical value and the tremendous athletic achievement it represents clearly make it infinitely more valuable than its mere melt value.
“With the Super Bowl taking place here in South Florida, I was fortunate enough to be in the middle of all the excitement at the game joined by my good friend MC Hammer,” said Cash4Gold CEO Jeff Aronson. “We congratulate the Saints on their historic and memorable victory. As a lifelong football fan I would not dream of having the Vince Lombardi Trophy melted down at Cash4Gold’s high-security headquarters. However, we would be honored to subject the trophy to a detailed metallurgical analysis using our state-of-the-art assaying equipment if the Saints want to bring it by.”
