Continuing the blogs on the two championship rings awarded from every Super Bowl, here’s the next pair; an inside look at the two championship rings from Super Bowl XI:

Super Bowl XI Championship Rings


As I’ve written tons of times, please accept my apologies that the above photo contains my website address. If I didn’t include this in the picture, other web sites would steal my pictures and eBay sellers who make those incredibly cheap replicas in China that don’t look as realistic as true authentic championship rings, will use my photos to claim the pictures are of their replica championship rings!

Almost every picture I use on this blog series of the two championship rings are from my personal championship ring collection (in this specific blog, I am using only one ring from my collection). As you know, these rings are extremely rare in the hobby place and are very seldom (or perhaps never) photographed in pairs from specific Super Bowls. So please excuse my effort to keep these photos from being misused and misrepresented. When I do use a picture found on the internet, I promise, I won’t place my website over the picture.

The ring on the left is the Oakland Raiders first winning Super Bowl Ring from their 1976 season. No team has made the effort the Raiders have to keep their championship ring theme the same over the decades since the Super Bowl started. I’ve detailed in past blogs how the Raiders championship rings remain the same style – you can search using the tools on the right for stories and examples of Raider championship rings.

Designed and manufactured by Lenox (who eventually was sold to Jostens) in 14K solid white gold, the ring contains one large diamond and 24 smaller diamonds. The ring weighs approximately 46 grams.

Like so many other winning Super Bowl rings, the Oakland Raiders Super Bowl XI ring is extremely rare and in high demand by Raider fans and highly coveted by championship ring collectors. Very few of these rings have made it to the collecting community and the few that have, have sold for a lot of money.

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. I only know of one Minnesota Vikings 1976 championship ring that has hit the market place and unfortunately, the manufacturer and the weight of the ring was not provided. Boy, talk about a rare ring!

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