There’s a lesson to be learned here, so listen up:

Stolen New York Giants 2000 NFC championship ring

Recently a New York Giants NFC Championship ring arrived at SellYourGold.com’s secure facility. The company employee, who is responsible to check on incoming items, noticed the seller’s name did not match the last name of the championship ring.

Turns out the Giants 2000 NFC championship ring belonged to Dave Maltese, the long-time Video Director of the Giants.

Since the last name inscribed on the ring did not match the name of the customer who sent it in, SellYourGold.com attempted to verify ownership of the diamond championship ring. After finding Maltese and notifying local Florida law enforcement, the company learned that the championship ring had recently been stolen.

When the police told Maltese that SellYourGold.com had released the championship ring and it would be returned to him, the veteran Giants employee was thrilled to get his prized championship ring returned. “I couldn’t believe it when I got the call. SellYourGold.com tracked me down before I even realized the ring was missing. I can’t thank them enough for reaching out so quickly and making sure I got my ring back,” said Maltese.

The lesson to be learned here is that owner’s of championship rings almost never sell to a gold-buying service. If you have an opportunity to purchase a championship ring from such a company, you really need to do your homework. If the police find you with a championship ring that is stolen, they will force you to return the championship ring and you will probably be out all of your money, unless the person you purchased the championship ring will reimburse you.

Those reimbursements are as rare as the championship rings we collectors seek.
