NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – The Super Bowl trophy and other NFL exhibits are going on a road trip.

The NFL on Wednesday rolled out its Huddle Shuttle at the flagship Tiffany store in Midtown Manhattan to pick up the Vince Lombardi Super Bowl trophy. Tiffany & Co. makes the sterling silver trophy for the league.

As WCBS 880′s Peter Haskell reported, there are millions of people who are interested in the Super Bowl, but only 82,000 will have tickets to the game.

The Huddle Shuttle is bringing some of that Super Bowl experience to local football fans, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said.

“This is a way for people in this region to experience the Super Bowl and be part of the excitement that’s building already,” said Goodell. “We’re starting that path down to Super Bowl XLVIII and that’s going to be a great path for this community.”

The Huddle Shuttle is a rolling Super Bowl exhibit and will house the Vince Lombardi trophy, video features and a mock locker room, 1010 WINS’ Juliet Papa reported.

“We’ll open up the locker room, they can actually go in and take a picture in front of Eli Manning’s locker or Curtis Martin’s locker,” Super Bowl Host Committee CEO Al Kelly said.

“A truck that has a set of 12 different exhibits ranging from things that give you the opportunity to test your skills and agility to things that are more exhibition oriented,” Giants co-owner Jonathan Tisch. “The game will come to all five boroughs, it’ll come to New York and New Jersey.”

Super Bowl XLII champion David Tyree was on hand to carry the Vince Lombardi trophy onto the Huddle Shuttle.

MetLife Stadium will host Super Bowl XLVIII on Feb. 2, 2014.
