The 1967 NFL Super Bowl was the first ever NFL championship game, and it was a classic. The Green Bay Packers, led by legendary quarterback Bart Starr, took on the Kansas City Chiefs, led by quarterback Len Dawson. The Packers were the heavy favorites, but the Chiefs put up a good fight and managed to keep the score close. In the end, the Packers pulled away with a 35-10 victory, becoming the first ever Super Bowl champions. Starr was named the MVP of the game, throwing for 250 yards and two touchdowns. It was a historic game, and one that set the tone for many years of NFL championships to come.
The 1967 NBA Championship Final Series between the Philadelphia 76ers and the San Francisco Warriors was a four-game series that ended with the 76ers winning the championship. The 76ers, led by Wilt Chamberlain, Hal Greer, and Chet Walker, were the heavy favorites going into the series and proved why, winning the first three games of the series. The Warriors, led by Rick Barry, Nate Thurmond, and Jeff Mullins, put up a fight in the fourth game, but ultimately fell to the 76ers in a close game, giving the 76ers their second NBA championship in franchise history.
The 1967 World Series featured the St. Louis Cardinals and the Boston Red Sox. The Cardinals won the series in seven games, with Bob Gibson winning two games and earning the MVP award. The Red Sox had a 3-1 lead in the series, but the Cardinals rallied back to win the final three games. The Cardinals scored the winning run in the seventh game on a single by Mike Shannon. The series was notable for its tight pitching match-ups between Bob Gibson and Jim Lonborg, with Gibson allowing just three earned runs in three complete game victories. The series was also the first to be televised in color.
