Ouch! Championship ring collectors may have to rethink what they’re willing to pay for championship rings, as certain player rings are bringing very low prices:

Giants NFC 2000 Championship ring

First off this blog is not a criticism or poor reflection on Goldin Auctions. I don’t know a sports auction company that does a better job at marketing their consignments than Goldin. It’s just a reflection on current market pricing of certain championship rings.

I’m not affiliated with Goldin auctions or any of the championship rings that sold recently in their auction.

The Giants 2000 NFC championship ring, shown above is a player ring with real diamonds and a presentation box. This player championship ring used to sell all day long in the $7,500 – $10,000 range a few years back. The one shown above, sold for $4,500.00 with the juice in a recent Goldin auction.

There’s a strong chance that the consigner of this championship ring walked away will less than $4,000.00.

The trend has been that when a player championship ring hits the market place, and that particular team and year have never sold before, bidding and the price realized will be very strong. As time goes on and more championship ring collectors acquire that team and year, demand and pricing tends to go down (but now always).

Of course this model is useless if a well-known, or dare I say, iconic player’s ring comes up for auction. We’ve seen that plenty of times as championship rings belonging to Babe Ruth, Lawrence Taylor, William Perry (remember, I said iconic, not great) have all sold for fortunes.

Please remember I buy championship rings all the time. If you would like to sell your championship ring in complete privacy, please contact me.
