Now there’s a Championship Ring blog-heading I never thought I’d create, but check out this Tweet by TOM III:
Tom III is a huge Denver Broncos fan, a reader of my championship ring blog, and he follows my Twitter posts (definitely in that order too!).
Tom nailed the sentiment towards the 2012 Tiffany NFC Championship Ring made for the 49ers with his post shown above.
He’s 100% correct – his High School ring is a better design than what Tiffany created for a professional football team!
And when you compare this 49ers championship ring with their historic Super Bowl rings (please see my super bowl ring gallery to view their rings), you can see how poor their latest championship ring design is.
Notice Tom’s High School championship ring design shows his football position on both sides of the ring, and tells a better story than the Tiffany championship ring.
And while the 49ers managed to put the year on their championship ring, keep in mind Tom’s championship ring also has the year, however, his year is on the ring top, not on the side. And the Tiffany ring lacks the player’s position.
Tom’s team went undefeated and their record is on the ring and his last name and number are crafted so much nicer than the way the last name and uniform number were displayed on the 49ers championship ring.
I wish I could show you the name on the 49ers championship ring so you could see the inferior personalization but, I need to honor the seller’s privacy.
The black antique technique used on Tom’s rings, help the images pop-out, while the 49ers ring, with harsh reflections from room or outdoor lighting, add to the Tiffany design failure.
Thanks Tom for your tweet that points out the 49ers epic fail, and congratulations on your wonderful championship ring!
