It seems preposterous now that a telecast like the first Super Bowl -- aired by two major networks -- could have disappeared, but in a bizarre confluence of events, neither network preserved the tape, and copies of the event have long been sought as the "Holy Grail" of sports memorabilia.
All that survived of the broadcast is sideline footage shot by NFL Films and roughly 30 seconds of footage -- until now.
The long search is over, ending with a titilating discovery. A 94-minute tape recorded on bulky two-inch video was delivered to the Paley Center for Media in New York after being stored in a Pennsylvania attic for nearly 38 years.
