In terms of calendar years, it has happened three times:

  • On January 12, 1969, the New York Jets won Super Bowl III with a 16-7 victory over the Baltimore Colts. On October 16, 1969, the New York Mets defeated the Baltimore Orioles in the 66th World Series.
  • On January 21, 1979, the Pittsburgh Steelers won Super Bowl XIII with a 35-31 victory over the Dallas Cowboys. On October 17, 1979, the Pittsburgh Pirates bested the Baltimore Orioles in seven games in the 76th World Series.
  • On February 1, 2004, the New England Patriots were victorious in Super Bowl XXXVIII with a 32-29 victory over the Carolina Panthers. On October 27, 2004, the Boston Red Sox won their first World Series championship in 86 years, sweeping the St. Louis Cardinals in four games.

In terms of overlapping seasons, it has happened four times:

  • The 1970 Baltimore Orioles won the World Series in five games over the Cincinnati Reds. The 1970 Baltimore Colts were crowned Super Bowl V champions, although the title game wasn't played until January 17, 1971.
  • The 1979 Pittsburgh Pirates' World Series title was followed by a repeat Super Bowl victory by the 1979 Pittsburgh Steelers, who defeated the Los Angeles Rams, 31-19, in Super Bowl XIV on January 20, 1980.
  • The 1986 New York Mets captured the 83rd World Series in seven games over the Boston Red Sox. The 1986 New York Giants won Super Bowl XXI on January 25, 1987 over the Denver Broncos, 39-20.
  • After the 2004 Boston Red Sox ended their decades-long World Series drought, the 2004 New England Patriots won their third Super Bowl title in four seasons. On February 6, 2005, the Patriots defeated the Philadelphia Eagles, 24-21, in Super Bowl XXXIX.
