"AFC vs. NFC for the NFL Championship - Sunday, January 27, 2002"
Yes, that's right - January 27, 2002, the original date of Super Bowl XXXVI, is printed on this poster. This first-printing of the Official Super Bowl Theme Art poster was completed just days before September 11, when the terrorist attacks caused the NFL to push back the big game to February 3, 2002. The publisher, Action Images, had already shipped several hundred copies of this printing before the date change was made, but suspended shipments immediately as they prepared a reprinting. Therefore, this original-date version is in EXTREMELY limited supply. Super Bowl poster collectors will want to grab up a copy before they're gone. Note: the New Orleans-themed design used in this poster has been scrapped by the NFL; the official theme art for Super Bowl XXXVI has been changed to the simple, patriotic design found here.
