Hank Stram’s son claims he has the real ring, and a championship ring expert alerted me that the ring in the auction was a common salesman sample.

Kansas City Chief Super Bowl Ring


Salesman sample rings these days sell for around $2,500 – $4,000. If this Hank Stram ring contained real diamonds, you could add about $1,500 – 2,500 to the value of this ring.

Worthridge auctions last month claimed they had legendary Kansas City Chiefs coach, Hank Stam’s Super Bowl IV ring in their auction. Although the ring generated some buzz, Stram’s son said there was absolutely no truth to the reports that his father’s ring was in that auction.

The son was given the real championship ring when Hank passed away in 2005. The son still has the original ring in his possession and no desire to sell it.

Adding proof that the ring in the auction is a common salesman sample, the ring contains a serial number. Real super bowl rings do not have serial numbers inside of them.

The ring at Worthtidge Auctions sold for $37,782 over the weekend. When the new owner learns what he has and what he doesn’t have, he or she will probably be quite upset.
