Value of the World Cup vs other professional trophies

In light of the FIFA World Cup wrapping up yesterday, after France defeated Croatia 4-2, we will briefly turn our attention towards soccer – particularly, the most famous trophy in the world which is awarded to the top soccer nation.  Weighing 6.1 kilograms, the 18 karat gold trophy was designed by Italian sculptor Silvio Gazzaniga in 1971.  At the time, the trophy was worth $50,000.  Today, the value of the World Cup is an estimated $20 million.
