The Return of Super Bowl Ring Humor

January 16, 2018


This Year’s Eagle Playoff Run Made Me Think of This Gem:


Superbowl Ring Humor Philadelphia Eagles


With backup quarterback Nick Foles playing well for injured Carson Wentz, could this still be the year the Eagles get their first Super Bowl ring?

Meanwhile this cartoon pokes fun of those poor frustrated Eagles fans.

I can’t wait for the AFC and NFC championship games this weekend!

Remember, the winners of these two upcoming games on Sunday not only meet in the Super Bowl, but are assured of at least an AFC and NFC championship ring.

Can anyone stop the Patriots From Winning Another Championship Ring?

January 15, 2018


If the Patriots win their AFC Championship game next Sunday, Tom Brady will be awarded his eighth NFL Championship ring:

I did not have a brain-freeze in what I said – my statement is 100% accurate. Because the NFL awards a championship ring to the Super Bowl winning and losing teams, all the Patriots have to do is beat the Jaguars on Sunday to assure themselves of another championship ring.

If the Pats defeat the Jaguars, it would be their second championship ring in a two year span, and if they win their next two games, they win their second set of back-to-back Super Bowl rings, which has only been done once before by the Pittsburgh Steelers.

If you’re not a Patriots fan, the common theme these days is rooting for anyone but the Patriots. Many NFL fans feel that seeing this team win year-in and year-out is getting old.

For those keeping count, if the Patriots win on Sunday, it would be the team’s ninth NFL championship ring, and because Bill Belichick won two Super Bowl rings as the defensive coordinator with the Giants and one with the Patriots as a defensive coordinator, it would be his 11th NFL championship ring.

Pictured above is every single Patriot championship ring, with the exception of their Super Bowl 51 ring from 2016.

The Million Dollar Championship Ring?

January 12, 2018


Maybe Joe Namath is pointing to his Super Bowl ring and thinking, “this could be the world’s first and only million dollar championship ring”.


Joe Namath Super Bowl III ring


As I stated before in this blog, I’ve often thought and wondered what’s the most valuable championship ring of all time?

While championship ring enthusiasts and sports fans could debate this matter until the end of time, I keep coming back to Namath’s Super Bowl III ring.

Am I crazy for thinking this championship ring could fetch a million dollars or more at auction? Keep in mind that Babe Ruth’s 1923 non-working 1923 solid gold World-Series watch sold for $717,000 in 2014. Note that World Series rings were not awarded in 1923, only gold watches.

Babe Ruth’s first Yankees World Series ring, from 1927, may have sold for more than $717,000 privately. However some in the sports memorabilia community have wondered if that championship ring is original, and some have even wondered if that ring is authentic. I have no idea about it’s authenticity. Bad-boy Charlie . Sheen purchased the ring privately, so the price he paid is not publicly known.

If New York Giant legend, Lawrence Taylor’s beat-up Super Bowl XXV championship ring can sell for $230,401 (in 2012) and the Bear’s William Perry’s (The Fridge) Super Bowl XX ring can fetch $203,150 (in 2015), imagine what Joe Namath’s Jets Super Bowl ring would bring at auction.

And keep in mind Perry’s Super Bowl XX ring also had championship ring collectors wondering if that ring started out life as a Jostens salesman sample and refitted with real diamonds.

Why is Joe Namath’s Super Bowl III ring (still owned and worn by Joe as pictured above) a possible $1,000,000 ring? What makes this championship ring so special is that Joe and the Jets were huge underdogs in Super Bowl III and their victory over the heavily favored Colts helped to make the annual Super Bowl contest the largest sporting event of the year. Up until recently, the Super Bowl continued to grow and grow in popularity, and perhaps it will still keep on growing.

Leland’s Shows Why They Are a Class Act

January 11, 2018


A reader alerted me to Leland’s misclassifying the championship ring shown below:


Championship rings in auction houses


A reader of this blog, who’s a huge Packer fan and always is on the lookout for Packer championship rings, sent the photo I created below to Leland’s. They fixed their listing right-away.

Great job to Leland’s – unlike some huge auction houses down South who are slow or worse, are very reluctant to make changes to their listings, Leland’s quickly relabeled the Packer Super Bowl ring as a replica.

The championship ring shown below (top row) was consigned as an authentic salesman sample. As you can clearly see by the photos of a player ring on the bottom row, there’s no-way the consigned item was authentic.


Packers Super Bowl rings


The Packer Super Bowl ring in the auction is no different from the $25.00 replicas we see made in China that sell all day long on eBay.

Thanks again Leland’s for showing the right way to do things.

Is This Really a Packer Salesman Sample Super Bowl Ring?

January 10, 2018


Leland’s is selling the championship ring shown below, claiming it’s a Jostens salesman sample. What do you think?


fake salesman sample ring?


The photograph above shows the Leland’s offering on the top, and a 100% authentic player Super Bowl ring is pictures directly below it.

According to the Leland’s auction listing:

“Recently discovered in Green Bay this a truly rare salesman’s sample by Jostens. Appears to be celestrium or a similar alloy and is unengraved and unmarked inside by Jostens. Most importantly this is NOT a replica and has the beauty, detail and definition of the player originals as it is made straight from the original mold only available through Jostens. Clear use is shown on the face of the ring with the top right and bottom left stones missing. In standard Jostens box (missing magnet) to hold shut. A perfect representation of the championship of the two title heaviest franchises of all time. And the Packers keep Titletown what it is.”


The true definition of a championship ring salesman sample is that it is a promotional item, sometimes made of non precious metals and almost always made with imitation diamonds. They are supposed to look exactly like the real championship ring versions and are made in the same molds and manner as the real ones.

Now I think the world of Leland’s. They are an excellent auction house, known for their integrity. I have a feeling this championship item will be pulled before the conclusion of the auction.

Clearly, the supposed Salesman sample offering, is not made from the same mold as the authentic Super Bowl ring shown below it.
