Continuing my blog series on showcasing the two championship rings awarded from every single Super Bowl, here’s the next installment. A look at the two rings from Super Bowl VIII:

Super Bowl VIII Rings, Championship rings from Super Bowl VIII


As I have mentioned before, please accept my apologies that the photo contains my website address. If I didn’t put this in the picture, other web sites would steal my pictures and eBay sellers who make cheap replicas that don’t look anywhere near as realistic as the legitimate championship rings, will use the photos to claim the pictures are of their replica championship rings!

Almost all the pictures that I show on this blog series are from my own personal championship ring collection. As you know, these rings are extremely rare and seldom (or perhaps never) photographed in pairs from specific Super Bowl games. So again, please excuse the on-going effort to keep the photos from being misused and misrepresented. When I use a picture found on the internet, I don’t put my website address on the picture.

The ring on the left is the Miami Dolphins second winning Super Bowl Ring from their 1973 season. Notice the championship ring also pays tribute to the 1972 undefeated season (17-0 when you count their playoff wins), with a second diamond and the “72″ on the top left of the ring.

Designed and manufactured by Jostens in 10K solid yellow gold, it contained two large diamonds and weighted in at 40 grams. One of the coolest things about the Dolphin championship rings from the 1970s is that the player’s signature facsimile can be found inside the ring.

Like so many other winning Super Bowl rings, the Miami Dolphins Super Bowl VIII ring is extremely rare and highly coveted by championship ring collectors. Very few of these rings have made it to the collecting community.

In a tradition that continues to this day, the team that loses the Super Bowl is still recognized as a champion of their respective conference. The Minnesota Vikings championship ring from this game was made by Jostens in 10K yellow solid gold. The ring is also around 40 grams.

Please excuse the broken horn on my Vikings mascot. Surprisingly, this is a common problem with these rings as other Viking rings have suffered the same fate.

Please remember I want to buy super bowl rings and I buy championship rings too, so please let me know if you have a championship ring you would like to sell.
