A detail of the Super Bowl 50 logo before the game between the Denver Broncos and Carolina Panthers on Sunday, Feb. 7, 2016 at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif. (Ric Tapia/NFL)The patches are made by a process called ChromaFlex by FiberLok, a manufacturer in Colorado. They were actually used last year as well, although they seemed more noticible to me this year with the gold.
These patches were also featured on the World Series jerseys and caps last year.
Sigh. That would have looked so good on us.
