The World’s Most Famous Trophies, and EDCO’s Equivalents

Created in a variety of shapes and sizes, many sporting events and leagues have unique trophies for the winning team or players. Certain awards are produced each year, while others use the same trophy perpetually. Most of these trophies are instantaneously recognizable even to people outside of the sport. Depending on the material, design, and production costs, each trophy has a different value as well.

If you are looking for an award that communicates the same level of excellence as one of the famous trophies below—such as the Stanley Cup or the Lombardi Trophy—then you have come to the right place. EDCO offers the widest range of quality employee recognition and athletic achievement awards in the United States.

Let’s look at some of the most famous trophies in the world, what makes them special, and how EDCO can get your business or team something similar:
