Look at All These Championship Rings on eBay, It must be Super Bowl Week!

January 31, 2016

Searching eBay this week, fans can easily find some authentic Super Bowl and Championship rings belonging to past players of the Broncos and Panthers:

Super Bowl and championship rings for sale

In seven days, the greatest yearly sporting event on Earth takes place and after it concludes, we’ll know which team is getting a new Super Bowl ring and which team is getting either an NFC or AFC championship ring.

It’s pretty rare to see the lone NFC championship ring that the Panthers have won available for sale. Yet, this week there are two of them on eBay.

Not to be left out, the Denver Broncos are feeling the love too, as some of their winning Super Bowl rings and AFC championship rings are on eBay as well.

The rings being offered are 100% genuine and please note I am not affiliated with any of the rings being offered, or the sellers of these championship rings.

And be careful, while the championship rings I’ve seen for sale are 100% real and genuine, a new or different unscrupulous seller, who has a different championship ring, could possibly appear at anytime with something that’s not genuine so be careful.

Please remember, I buy championship rings. So if you would like to sell your ring, and not have the whole world or the media find out about it, let’s talk!

Beautiful Patriots Salesman Sample Super Bowl Ring Shows Up on eBay

January 29, 2016

“Late Model” Salesman Sample Rings Have Become Quite Rare – Almost as Challenging to Get as a Real Championship Ring:

New England Patriots Super Bowl Ring

Want a killer championship ring for a fraction of the price of a real one? Here’s you chance….

Before I go any further, I need to mention that I am not affiliated with this Super Bowl ring or the seller of it.

I’m just here to blog about a great salesman Super Bowl ring.

The championship ring, shown above, was made by Jostens and it’s the New England Patriots and Tom Brady’s first Super Bowl ring.

Sadly, (please note the sarcasm), Tom, Bill, and the Pats couldn’t make it this year to the Super Bowl, and their quest for a fifth Super Bowl ring has been temporarily been put on hold.

The Super Bowl ring on eBay is made of solid 10k white gold and is the exact same version the players received (except their Super Bowl rings were made in 14K gold). The name on side of the ring is the owner, “Kraft”.

The salesman sample offered, as all samples do, contains imitation diamonds (called cubic zirconias) and that helps keep the cost of this ring lower.

The asking price of this Super Bowl ring is $14,500, which is substantially less than half of what a real Super Bowl ring would cost you. With a “make offer” option available, it looks like the championship ring can be had for less than the asking price.

Please remember, I buy championship rings, so if you would like to discuss selling your championship ring privately, please let me know.

Eli and Peyton Manning Don’t Compare Super Bowl Rings

January 28, 2016

You would think two brothers that play at such a high level in the NFL would engage in some sibling rivalry, and would attempt to one up each other. But apparently, that’s not the case with Eli and Peyton Manning.

Peyton Manning Super Bowl Rings

Eli Manning Super Bowl Rings

Pictured above are all the winning and losing Super Bowl rings the Manning brothers have won.

The top row, features Peyton’s one Winning Super Bowl ring (center) and his two losing Super Bowl rings (called AFC Championship rings).

The second photo, below the first, shows Eli Manning’s two winning Super Bowl rings, both designed and manufactured by Tiffany and Company.

Sure, the two brothers have won individual accolades, including MVPs, Pro Bowl nominations and now including Super Bowl 50, they have a combined six Super Bowl appearances.

But while Eli has two Super Bowl rings to Peyton’s one, Eli never rubs it in his older brother’s face.

According to Art Stapleton of The Record, Eli stated that he never compares his Super Bowl victories to Peyton’s, and they don’t compare the Super Bowl rings either.

Peyton, who has lost two Super Bowl games, has perhaps his final chance to tie Eli’s Super Bowl ring count at two; if his Denver Broncos can somehow beat the favored Carolina Panthers in Super Bowl 50.

The whole Manning clan will be in attendance and Eli will be honored at the Super Bowl MVP ceremony.

Please remember I buy championship rings. If you have a championship ring to sell and would like a private transaction, please contact me.

Bronco Super Bowl Rings Might Be Easier To Get Then Super Bowl Tickets

January 27, 2016

Have some extra money? You can get two former player’s Super Bowl rings on eBay right now:

Denver Bronco Super Bowl Rings

The two winning player Super Bowl rings shown above our from my collection and not the two rings for sale on eBay.

And, please note I am not affiliated with the two championship rings (or any championship rings) being offered on eBay.

And, the photo above does show the AFC championship ring from the Broncos most recent trip to the super bowl, and please note there is not one of these being offered on eBay.

The Super Bowl XXXIII ring being offered on eBay (easily found if you search the eBay site) has an asking price of $72,500. The seller has a “best offer” option so keep in mind the championship ring will probably sell for less.

The seller is stating that the player has played in numerous Super Bowls and that he has made the probowl a bunch of times. The seller does not want to mention who’s Super Bowl ring it belonged to, and that’s pretty common when selling championship rings on eBay (not a bad thing in the interest of keeping the original owner’s name out of the press).

Perhaps auction houses should do that too. Meanwhile, we can assume the ring does not belong to John Elway, the former QB Hall of Famer and current GM of the broncos. My guess (and it would not be fair to call out a name when I could be wrong) is that the original owner was a controversial player – you loved him if he played for your team and hated him if he didn’t, and had a little incident with spit.

Also on eBay is a player’s XXXII championship ring with an asking price of $32,500.00. This Super Bowl ring also has a best offer option so it could possibly sell for less money than the asking price.

Going to Super Bowl 50 and rooting for the Broncos? You can buy either of these championship rings (or both) and have them in time to wear to the game!

Please remember, I buy championship rings all the time. If you want to sell your championship ring privately, and avoid being “outed” in an auction or in the news, please contact me to do a private transaction.

Ickey Woods 1988 AFC Championship Ring For Sale on eBay

January 26, 2016

The Championship Ring from one of the most lovable players in Bengals history can be yours if your offer is accepted:

Ickey Woods 1988 AFC Championship ring

Please note, I do not know the seller of this ring and I am not affiliated with this championship ring offer at all. I’m just writing about the ring and the player for the enjoyment of other championship ring enthusiasts.

If you are too young to remember Ickey Woods and his famous “Shuffle” you really will want to see it on you-tube.

The championship ring offered on ebay appears to be authentic and while the asking price seems very high (normally a player’s championship ring from this era will sell for $7,000 – $10,000) the seller is accepting offers.

Here’s some background on Ickey.

Elbert Woods was given the nickname “Ickey” because of his younger brother’s pronunciation of his first name, which sounded like “E-E.” The nickname stuck from them on.

Woods played his short but entire NFL career (1988 to 1991) with the Cincinnati Bengals. Before that he played college football at UNLV. Woods is most remembered for his “Ickey Shuffle” end zone dance, performed each time he scored a touchdown.

Woods was drafted by the Bengals in the second round (31st overall) of the 1988 NFL Draft. He was a breakout star as a rookie, rushing for 1,066 yards and 15 touchdowns. He played very well in the playoffs that rookie season, having 228 yards and three touchdowns in the playoffs.

When the Bengals advanced to Super Bowl XXIII, he played well, but unfortunately, the Bengals lost the Super Bowl game 20-16 to the San Francisco 49ers. Woods finished as the game’s leading rusher with 79 yards.

In 1989, Woods tore his left anterior cruciate ligament in the second game of the season. He missed 13 months of playing time and when he returned, his starting role was filled by Harold Green.

In 1991, Woods injured his right knee in the preseason. He returned at midseason but he ran for just 97 yards on 36 carries. He was out of football by age 26.

Woods is the longtime owner and coach of the Cincinnati Sizzle of the full-contact Women’s Football Alliance.

He also runs the Ickey Woods Youth Foundation as well as the Jovante Woods Foundation, named for his son who died at age 16. Jovante was an honor student and a member of the Princeton High School football team who tragically suffered a fatal asthma attack.

Woods has six children. Since retiring from the NFL, he has been a sales representative for a meat company, sold security systems, and has owned a flooring store in Cincinnati.

Woods also has appeared in numerous television commercials. He appeared in a Cincinnati Bell commercial, doing the “Ickey Shuffle” with the company’s president and was in a national Oldsmobile commercial doing the “Ickey Shuffle” with his mother.

In 2014, Woods was featured in a classic GEICO Insurance commercial in which he reprised his “Ickey Shuffle” while purchasing cold cuts at a deli counter.

Please remember, I buy championship rings so if you have a championship ring to sell and want to have a private transaction, please let me know.
