It’s a rare opportunity to acquire a player championship ring from a very special football team:


1959 Syracuse football championship ring


Lelands, a well known sports memorabilia company will be auctioning Gene Grabosky’s 1959 National championship ring in October.

Grabosky, was a defensive tackle for the Orangemen and a senior on that team. Having been born in upstate New York, Grabosky stayed local during his football career. After graduating near-by Syracuse, he played one season with the AFL’s Buffalo Bills (also located in upstate New York. He died in 2001.

The starting bid on his championship ring is only $750, and could very well wind up going for several thousand dollars.

The solid gold championship ring has the iconic “NATIONAL CHAMPIONS” notation, a Syracuse Orangemen inclusion, and some Cotton Bowl mentions too.

The 1959 Syracuse team was a very balanced and talented team. Sophomore (and future Heisman award winner) Ernie Davis was the star of the offense, compiling 686 yards, and averaging a very impressive 7 yards per carry). Three more players rushed for at least 500 yards,and seven more rushed for at least 115 yards while five finished with at least 100 receiving yards. No wonder the team ended up with a national title, and a championship ring (shown above).

As you know by now, I buy championship rings. If you would like to conduct a private deal and sell your championship ring, please let me know.
