The U.S. Customs officials seized a shipment of over 100 fake Super Bowl rings entering our country from Hong Kong:


fakes super bowl rings seized by customs


The poorly crafted championship rings were discovered last week and represented many past champions, including the New England Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles latest Super Bowl rings.

In a press release statement, CBP said officers “noted the poor craftsmanship” of the Super Bowl rings and held them to check their authenticity with the National Football League.

The NFL is rightfully the trademark holder, and confirmed the rings were fake.

The NFL said an authorized replica Super Bowl ring can cost over $10,000 but counterfeits are sold online for as little as $25.

This blog has written about this problem for years and often wonders how the NFL, other sports leagues, Jostens, Balfour, Tiffany, the individual teams, and eBay allow these sales to continue.

The 100 – 200 championship rings seized by customs officials is just a tiny fraction of all the fake championship rings that are made in China and brought to the U.S.

Here’s a link to the video of this story:
