Charles Haley is the only person who can say he was awarded five winning Super Bowl rings as a player. Here are those five amazing rings:

Charles Haley and his five Super Bowl Championship Rings

No one else in the history of pro football can make that claim.

Haley won two championship rings from Super Bowl XXIII and Super Bowl XXIV with the San Francisco 49ers following the 1988 and 1989 seasons, respectively.

After having a conflict with 49ers head coach George Seifert and a physical confrontation with quarterback Steve Young, Haley was traded to the Dallas Cowboys in the 1992 off-season. In Dallas, he won three more Super Bowl rings over the next four seasons: His three Cowboy Super Bowl rings are from 1992 (XXVII), 1993 (XXVIII), and 1995 (XXX).

Although injuries forced his retirement in 1996, he briefly came back for the 1998 playoffs to help the 49ers. He played with them in 1999. Finally out of playing football permanently, Haley turned to assistant coaching, and was a defensive assistant for the Detroit Lions.

In 12 NFL seasons, Haley recorded 100.5 quarterback sacks, two interceptions, and eight fumble recoveries, which he returned for nine yards and a touchdown.

Charles Haley was also selected to play in five Pro Bowls (1988, 1990, 1991, 1994, 1995) and was named NFL All-Pro in 1990 and 1994.

Although we have covered Charles Haley and his super bowl rings before, the photo above shows something very interesting that we have not covered: The top of the photo shows on the left, the 49ers, Super Bowl XXIV ring and the Cowboys Super Bowl XXVIII ring. It is remarkable how similar in design these rings are!

The 49ers Super Bowl XXIV ring is a 47 gram, 10K ring made by Jostens. The Cowboys XXVIII ring is 56 grams and is made of 10K gold and was made by Balfour. Both rings share the same pattern of having four large marquis diamonds in a football shaped pattern. The four large diamonds in both rings are symbolizing each team’s fourth World Championship.
