Talk about trying to strike while the oven is hot; this front office Super Bowl ring can be yours for $100,000:

Patriot Super Bowl rings on eBay

The seller of this eBay listing is offering a front-office Patriots Super Bowl XXXVI ring for sale with a $100,000 price tag.

In fairness to the seller, here’s the good stuff you should know about the championship ring shown above:

1) It contains real diamonds and is made of 14K white solid gold, just like the player’s version.

2) Except for a missing uniform number on the side of the Super Bowl ring, it is the exact size and version Jostens made for the players.

3) The championship ring comes with the impressive wood personalization box, the exact ones the player received.

4) This is a stunning Super Bowl ring, and the first winning one the team was awarded.

Now the bad, and in this case the bad far outweighs the good:

1) The Super Bowl ring has an asking price of $100,000; however the seller is willing to negotiate.

2) If the seller is asking $100,000 is he really going to take $20,000 to $25,000; which is the going rate for Patriots front office rings from this year?

3) The listing mentions Tom Brady. I have no idea other than to attract attention to the auction why it has Brady’s name in the auction heading.

One thing I’ve learned about writing this championship blog over the years is that occasionally people do silly or uneducated purchases of championship rings. But those instances are few and far between.

I have a feeling this Super Bowl ring will be on the market place for quite a while. It reminds me of another front office Patriots Super Bowl 2001 ring that was on the market place for years, although that seller was asking a little more than half the price of this one.

Please remember as always, I buy championship rings. Just at realistic prices. Unlike this auction where the original recipient’s name was shown, no one will know you sold me your championship ring.
