Arguably, the three best championship rings offered in their auction, all fail to reach the reserve and don’t sell:

Few things are more frustrating to championship ring collectors and sports memorabilia collectors, than auction offerings that have hidden minimum reserves and then fail to sell. Especially, if you’re up all night trying to make sure you’re the winning bidder.

Imagine the frustration of being the highest bidder, only to find that you’ve won nothing for your efforts.

Please note, I didn’t bid in the Paragon auction and I’m not affiliated with any of the championship rings that were offered in this auction. I’m here, just to blog about the world of championship rings.

The three championship rings offered in the auction that are shown above, did well bidding-wise. I have no idea what the original consigners were thinking.

The Dolphins ring at $22,413.00 was a decent price and the rare 1955 American League championship ring was actually a strong price at $13,915. Incidentally, that exact player Yankee championship ring, was sold in one other auction (Mastro Auctions) back in 2006 for $5,956.00; so what was the consigner thinking?

Finally, the Chief’s Super Bowl IV ring, which belonged to a scout, not a player like the other two championship rings, did decent too, at $12,974.00.

Perhaps the auction would have seen more activity and could have reached higher bidding amounts had the event received better advertising and press, and also, if there were no reserves.

Please remember, I will always give a fair price for your championship rings. I’ll buy your championship ring if you’re looking to sell and don’t forget, you’ll maintain your privacy.
