July 30, 2018


It’s quite rare to find so many high-end championship rings in one auction; but thanks to Heritage, it’s happening:

The photo above is not a smart-phone or computer wallpaper, or the background of the latest championship ring dealer’s website. It’s a partial listing of some of the championship rings Heritage has in an upcoming auction.

Before we go any further, please note I am not affiliated with Heritage auctions or any of their championship rings in their upcoming sale. I’m just here to blog about the world of championship rings.

The event takes place during their Summer Platinum Night Sports Collectibles Auction and ends August 18-19.

I find their website and auction calendar a little confusing, so please check out their website for clarification. The link to their site is listed near the bottom of this blog story.

Many of their offerings are player championship rings, some are front office ones and some are salesman samples. Don’t be discouraged if you’re looking for player championship rings, this auction is loaded with them. And they have a lot of my favorite championship rings: Super Bowl rings!

Good luck bidding.

Buffalo Bills 1965 AFL Championship Ring Selling at Paragon Auctions

July 27, 2018


Two days ago I blogged about the very cool MLB 2017 All Star ring in a Paragon auction. Today let’s turn our attention to the other championship ring in the auction worth noting:


Buffalo Bills 1965 AFL Championship ring


Both the Buffalo Bills 1965 AFL championship ring (shown above) and the All Star ring (see the blog entry, dated July 25, 2018) should be good values for championship ring collectors. However, keep in mind when dealing with auctions, anything can happen; such as a “Tom Brady” family Super Bowl ring that was not player size, that sold for over $344,000 earlier this year at auction.

Paragon did a very good job describing this near mint, player size championship ring. However no mention or information was provided as to who “E.J. Hand” was. I’m pretty sure he was not a player on the team and probably worked in the team’s office as I could not find any information about this person on the internet.

This solid 10k gold ring (with a real diamond) is the same ring given to players and is in remarkable condition. The championship ring was made by John Roberts Jr., a company that crafted some championship rings and school rings decades ago. The company was possibly acquired by Balfour according to some research and internet speculation.

This championship ring, since it is not a player ring will probably sell in the $3,000 price range, but could go higher or lower depending upon bidding. In that price range, the championship ring is a very good value for a Bills fan, or championship ring collector.

I am not affiliated with the auction company or this championship ring, however, I have purchased championship rings and other items from Paragon and they are a solid, honest company.

Unworn Brooklyn Dodger World Series Back at Auction

July 26, 2018


This incredible, mint condition 1955 World Series Ring was sold 14 years ago at a Lelands auction for $44,620.61. It could sell for a lot more this time around:


**photo description here**


I am not affiliated with this championship ring, or the auction house; I’m just here to blog about the world of championship rings.

The Brooklyn Dodgers won only one World Series when they played in Brooklyn, The year was 1955 and player World Series rings from this year are rare and special. And they sell for a lot of money.

The 1955 World Series rings were made by Dieges & Clust. Dieges & Clust is no longer around, they were acquired by the company Herff Jones.

Not only is Don Zimmer’s World Series ring in mint condition, it also comes with the championship ring box that’s in mint condition too. Unlike today’s huge championship rings that often come with heavy wood and glass presentation boxes, the Dodgers original championship ring box was made of leather (or leather-like materials) and was not designed to stand up to decades of use.

Don Zimmer was a young player on the team, and later became a major league coach and manager. Zimmer is considered a baseball icon.

The company handling the auction is Love of the game Auctions. Here’s a link to their website: http://loveofthegameauctions.com/default.aspx

Baseball All Star Championship Rings Have Come a Long Way

July 25, 2018


Most Baseball All Star rings have boring designs, however this 2017 version really stands out:


2017 Baseball All Star rng


Paragon Auctions is offering two championship rings in their current auction that are worth checking out.

I’m not affiliated with Paragon auctions or these two championship rings, although I have purchased championship rings from Paragon in the past and have had great experiences with this auction company.

I’ll blog about both championship rings this week, as I believe they represent good values for championship ring collectors.

Whether you’re looking for one or two championship rings to further your collection, or wish to get started on acquiring your first championship ring, both items will sell for reasonable prices; not tens of thousands of dollars as a hotly desired, blinged out championship rings sometimes fetch.

These two authentic mid-level priced championship rings are a good solid value.

One reason the All Star championship ring (shown above) will not sell for a lot of money is that these rings (even the player issued rings that are identical) are made of non-gold and inexpensive imitation diamonds (just like the NCAA college championship rings).

That means that the selling price will probably be under $2,000.00 for this great looking ring. Perhaps way under $2,000. Keep in mind that this is an auction, so anything can happen when multiple bidders really want something, so don’t blame me if this ring sells above $2,000.00.

If it sells for what other all star championship rings have sold for in past auctions, then someone will get a very good looking championship ring for a terrific price.

The Nicest Super Bowl Ring Pendant I’ve Ever Seen

July 24, 2018


Championship pendants, made similarly to championship ring tops, are collectible and can go for a lot of money. The Patriots Super Bowl XXXVIII pendant is truly spectacular:


Patriots championship ring pendant


I didn’t know this championship pendant even existed, until I recently came upon it for sale on eBay.

Honestly, I’m not a big fan of pendant championship jewelry, but even I would admit, this specimen is incredible.

I’m not affiliated with this item or involved with the seller for the purpose of promoting this item or others, however he’s a friend of mine and I’ve purchased many championship rings from him over the years.

According to the seller, Scott Welkowsky:

This once-in-a-lifetime Sale / Best Offer is for an Truly Amazing, and Extremely RARE Pendant ….produced for the Patriots Players & Coaches and was a “Special Order” only through JOSTENS for either themselves, or their wives, girlfriend, mom, etc.!!

This 2004 New England Patriots Super Bowl XXXVIII World Champions 14K White Gold Pendant & Chain contains all Genuine Diamonds.

It was purchased by a Patriots Player (to remain anonymous) directly from Jostens after receiving his Super Bowl XXXVIII ring!

From the season New England finished with a stellar 14-2 record and went-on to crush the Carolina Panthers dreams, once again …in exciting fashion, 32-29, in Super Bowl XXXVIII, and finishing an impressive 17-2!

  • A truly stunning, extremely RARE pendant never seen before!

  • Made by World-Renown JOSTENS (All Proper Markings ….See pics)
  • Appears to be the exact Vince Lombardi insert that’s in their MASSIVE Super Bowl Ring!!!
  • In Nr. Mint Condition weighing 23.2-GRAMS of 14K White Gold ….
  • with (31) Genuine Diamonds!!
  • Guaranteed 100% Authentic for Life -
  • 14K White Gold Chain Included!

    If you’re interested in this pendant, you can easily find it on eBay. Perhaps if it’s still available, you can even see it or purchase it at the upcoming National Sports show.
