Jimmy Farris Gets His Super Bowl Ring Back

December 31, 2015

Good News and a Great Way To End The Year on a High Note:

Patriots 2001 Super Bowl Ring

Former Pats Player, Jimmy Farris, informed me that his stolen Super Bowl ring was found and recovered.

The thief tried to consign it to a Championship Ring Dealer, who is now sending the ring back directly to Jimmy.

The Jostens made 2001 Super Bowl ring was the Patriots first winning Super Bowl ring and Jimmy’s only one.

Looks like things worked out great for Jimmy and it’s thrilling (and unfortunately rare) that championship rings are returned to their rightful owners so quickly.

Great job to the ring dealer for doing his homework and then returning the ring to Jimmy.

Please remember, I buy championship rings so if you have a championship ring to sell, let’s talk!

Happy New Year everyone, enjoy New Years eve and stay safe.

Are You Wondering Who’ll Get The Next Super Bowl Ring?

December 30, 2015

I couldn’t resist using this photo of Putin and a photoshopped Super Bowl ring:

Super Bowl 50 Ring

Yes, unbelievably, Putin has a Super Bowl ring….

And early Sunday evening, we’ll finally know who could be next to get a Super Bowl ring, as all the teams in this year’s NFL playoffs will be determined. Just about every team in the playoffs will have a legitimate chance to win a Super Bowl 50 ring.

This championship ring blog will cover the big games and show off some new pictures of Super Bowl rings in the coming weeks.

Meanwhile, until we know who’s in and what the seeding and matchups look like, please stay safe, enjoy New Years eve and have a healthy and happy new year!

Please remember, I buy championship rings all the time, so if you have a Super Bowl ring or championship ring, or World Series ring, please get in touch with me!

Are The Championships Over For the Manning Brothers?

December 29, 2015

It’s been a bad season for Peyton and Eli Manning, and this week things got worse.

Manning Brother Championship rings

Just a couple of seasons ago, Eli and Payton were on top of the world. Eli, a two-time Super Bowl winner and two-time Super Bowl MVP, seemed to have Tom Brady’s number.

And while Peyton, seemed to be more often on the losing side of his matches with Brady, Peyton was considered one of the top three quarterbacks in the history of pro football.

Together they have three Super Bowl rings (see them below). Things started to head south during Super Bowl 48, when Peyton had a bad game and the Broncos were handedly beaten by the Seahawks.

As a result of that game, it looks like Payton will wind up with one Super Bowl ring for his career (unless by some miracle, the Broncos win another championship).

If the Broncos do win a Super Bowl, and Peyton is the backup, will his last Super Bowl ring mean anything to him? He has already stated that his two AFC championship rings, from his two Super Bowl losing appearances, aren’t worn by him because he didn’t win those games (see them below).

And as I said earlier, this was a very tough week for the Manning brothers – Eli’s team was eliminated from the Playoff picture on Sunday afternoon, and then played very poorly against the Vikings. Worse, on the same day, allegations of HGH use was thrown at Peyton. Peyton has denied the allegation and is considering bringing a lawsuit against the news organization and author that broke the story.

If we have seen the end of the Manning championship rings, then here are all the rings they have won:

Eli Manning Super Bowl rings

There will definitely be one more championship ring for Peyton and possibly for Eli too: The Pro Football Hall of Fame ring.

Please remember, I buy championship rings so if you have one to sell, please contact me.

Ohio State National Championship Rings

December 28, 2015

This great photo recently showed up on Twitter:

Ohio State Buckeyes Championship Rings

The two Ohio State 2014 championship rings shown above are real beauties.

Championship rings that show a team’s won/loss record so prominently on the top of the ring are extremely rare – I can’t think of another instance where a championship ring was designed to show off a team’s record in this manner.

I must say, I like it, and why not display their undefeated record?

What I don’t understand is that although the team went undefeated against the other teams in their Conference (they were 8-0), they finished with an overall record of 14-1 (their only loss was to Virginia Tech).

Keep in mind, both championship rings shown above are made of non gold, and with imitation diamonds. That means that the precious metal and gem stone value of the rings are quite low, perhaps in the $200 range, yet the rings are gorgeous and most importantly, are priceless to the players and staff that earned these championship rings.

I buy championship rings, so if it’s time to sell your championship ring, please get in touch with me.

Who Wants s Cheap Super Bowl Ring From China?

December 26, 2015

I’m often asked what I think the of the cheap knock off Super Bowl and Championship rings found on eBay. Here’s why the old adage, “A Pictures is Worth a Thousand Words” is so true:

replica 2014 Patriots Super Bowl Ring

The championship ring shown at the above left is a real Patriots 2014 Super Bowl ring. The Super Bowl on the right, is well…… a piece of crap.

Please note, I photoshopped the two Super Bowl rings together, so while I did not purposely enhance the rings or make them appear worse, I did size them identically. So please keep in mind that I have no idea if the two rings are this close in size. One of these Super Bowl rings could be a little or a lot larger or smaller than the other.

Looking on ebay at championship rings, I believe I may have stumbled upon some cheap replica 2014 Super Bowl rings that look closer to the original, but I am not sure if they are actually the ring you receive when you buy it.

You could wind up with the beauty on the right, and I would be embarrassed to wear it, or display it.

How the NFL, Jostens, and eBay allows this to happen boggles my mind.

But they do.

I am not condoning or recomending these fake championship rings, and I have no affiliation whatsoever, with any of these manufactures or sellers.

Let me know what you think, and if any of you have purchased a cheap replica 2014 Super Bowl ring, email me. I’ll try to publish your thoughts on this matter.

Please remember, I buy super bowl rings (real, not replicas or salesman samples) so if you have a championship ring to sell, please let me know.
