Goldin Auctions sold a player’s 1958 Colts NFL championship ring at the National Sports Convention for $22,095.00:


Colts 1958 championship ring at goldin acutions


I am not affiliated with this championship ring or Goldin Auctions, although I have purchased many items from the auction company in the past.

The championship ring was in good condition and came with a family Letter of Authenticity.

According to Goldin Auctions:

Offered here is a Balfour 14K gold 1958 Baltimore Colts NFL championship ring, reading “BALTIMORE COLTS WORLD CHAMPIONS” while boasting a sapphire on each side of the ring’s top, which is centered by a diamond. This ring was presented to team member Albert Rechichar. The right shank shows the championship game’s final score, as well as a Colts team logo and the year 1958. Another team logo, the words “WORLD CHAMPIONS” and the year 1958 all appear on the opposite shank. Two small horseshoes are below the year on each side of the ring. Inside the band is marked “14K LGB” and also includes an inscription of both Rechichar’s full name and his number 44. Please note that the band shows wear and the listing of Rechichar’s last name is partially worn off. This ring – which includes a family LOA – is an approximate size 12 ½ and weighs approximately 34.2 grams.

Not only did Goldin Auctions describe the championship ring accurately (some auction houses that can’t be bothered with detailed descriptions should take note), the writers at the auction company detailed the significance of the championship ring as well:

The 1958 National Football League Championship Game between the Baltimore Colts and New York Giants– played on December 28th in famed Yankee Stadium – is famously remembered as “The Greatest Game Ever Played”. The Colts came away with the title after a 23-17 overtime victory, the first NFL playoff game to ever go into sudden-death overtime. Legendary Colts quarterback Johnny Unitas threw for 349 yards, while his favorite target – receiver Raymond Berry – racked up big numbers: 12 receptions for 178 yards and a TD.
