A picture is worth a 1000 words Sonny Liston did'nt need a trophy to remind him of his big loss  .

You get your conference championship ring.

Yes, kind of - both teams receive trophies for winning their conference (and rings, as pointed out above).

Just done a little research: They're called the Lamar Hunt AFC Championship Trophy, and the George Halas NFC Championship Trophy. They were redesigned in 2010-11 to look more modern, see below:

On a side note. Can anyone find the 1959 and the 1968 Championship rings?

No, but the QB gets to go to Disneyland - Paris.

No.   Nobody would want to stand on a podium and receive such a trophy after losing a SB, anyway.

No...although some teams do choose to hang runner-up or 'AFC Finalist' banners in their stadium ;)

In World cup Rugby & Soccer losers of the semi's play each other to see who gets 3rd & 4th place...

That is sort of a bittersweet test/match...

 

Thatd be weird if AFC & NFC championship game losers played in a runner's up bowl...

Thank God they redesigned those Conference Championship trophies. Those old ones were horrendous.
