Authentic Patriots Super Bowl LI Ring For Sale on eBay

December 31, 2018


Before you grab your checkbook for this spectacular, authentic championship ring, there’s a couple of things you should know:


Patriots Super Bowl LI 2017 ring for sale


I’m not affiliated with this Super Bowl ring, and I not affiliated with the person selling this championship ring.

Here’s the good:

  • It is an authentic Patriots 2016 Super Bowl LI ring

  • Just like the player’s version, it appears to have the same mantras and engravings as the player’s version
  • It comes with the authentic wood presentation box (and even the cardboard box that houses the championship ring and wood presentation box)

    Here’s the bad:

      The seller doesn’t state it, but note that this Super Bowl ring, while huge, is smaller than the player’s version.

    • The Super Bowl ring is made of mostly non-gold materials, and those huge diamonds are man made imitation diamonds. The diamonds look great but are not worth any money.
    • This is the first staff championship ring to sell from the Patriots 2016 season. As more enter the market place, the selling prices almost always drops.
    • Collectors want real gold, real diamonds, and player size championship rings. If you purchase this Super bowl ring, don’t expect to get your money back when it’s time to sell.

      The Seller is accepting best offers, so who knows how much money this will actually sell for. A player’s authentic Super Bowl ring, could go for double the asking price of this item, however, I believe most collectors will not want to spend this kind of money for a non-gold, non-diamond, smaller-than-a-player’s version.

      If you’re wondering how much smaller this Super Bowl ring is than the player’s version, the player version is estimated to be about 110 grams, and this one weighs in at 82.4 grams (according to the seller).

      Last, anyone interested in purchasing this Super Bowl ring, should insist on concrete paperwork from the original owner. All the original owner has to do (or their family) is file a police report that the Super Bowl ring was stolen or lost, and you’re championship ring, no matter what you say, goes back to the original owner or family if you try to sell this item with a well-known auction company. I can’t stress enough how important an ironclad proof of title is.

  • Homeless Man Spent Months Searching For Owner of This Lost Championship Ring

    December 28, 2018


    This Georgetown College Final-Four championship ring was found five months ago by Robert Eads as he picked up trash in Lexington Kentucky:


    Georgetown final four championship ring


    Eads, who works out of the city’s Panhandling van, found the large championship football ring on a sidewalk in August. Who could blame Eads, who is homeless, if he kept the championship ring and tried to sell it.

    However, Eads spent three months trying to return the championship ring to it’s rightful owner. To find the ring’s owner, Eads called the Georgetown athletics department and searched the Internet without success.

    Finally, Eads got Panhandling van supervisor Jarrod Jones involved. Jones is a former Lexington police officer, who was able to track down the father of the championship ring’s owner.

    The father, Don Schmitz, said that his son lives in Denver. Don’s son, got his championship ring back when he came home for Christmas.

    Schmitz said, “It was a Christmas gift to all of us.”

    What a great story! Congratulations to the Schmitz family, and to Robert Eads who did the right thing!

    Alex Ovechkin Delivered Capitals Championship Rings to Five Shocked Fans

    December 26, 2018


    Earlier this month, five Capitals fans got quite a surprise, when they were asked to meet at the MedStar Capitals Iceplex facility:


    video of Alex Ovenchkin delivering five fans capitals championship rings


    The hard-core fans were told their Capitals Stanley Cup championship rings had arrived from Jostens. The limited edition rings cost $12,018 each and are the closest thing a fan can get, next to a full sized Capitals’ player championship ring.

    But instead of getting their championship rings from a Jostens employee, a hockey legend delivered the championship rings instead: future Hall of Famer Alex Ovechkin.

    “What’s up, guys!” Ovechkin said as he surprised the five fans. In the video below you can see how the fans were shocked, then overjoyed and one fan even raised his fist in celebration.

    “While we were waiting for Jostens, because that’s who we thought was coming, and then Ovi shows up, which is a great payoff,” Caps fan John Smallwood said. “He’s the reason we’re here.”

    But the moment was not without its imperfections. After Ovechkin gave one Stanley Cup championship ring to Nick Clemens, the Caps fan had to remind Ovechkin he bought another one.

    “There’s two of them,” Nick Clemens said to Ovechkin.

    “TWO?!” Ovechkin said. “Sorry!”

    Laughter filled the room.

    After every fan had received their own championship ring, with their name personalized on it, Ovechkin had them open the boxes at the same time – the exact process the players had done when they received their championship rings.

    “Seeing that man walk in with that box and give it to me personally is something I’ll never ever forget,” Clemens added.

    Might Smaller-Be-Better With Championship Rings?

    December 21, 2018


    While the championship ring shown below, will never replace the huge blinged out rings athletes and collectors crave, perhaps there’s room for something small, comfortable, and much less ostentatious than a huge championship ring:


    Alabama Crimson Tide College Football championship ring band


    Visiting twitter recently, I came across this football championship ring, made for Alabama Crimson Tide college football fans.

    It lists all 17 of the University’s football championships, and this sharp-looking, non-gold, no-diamond, championship ring would be perfect for the fan (or Crimson collector) who feels that they can pay homage to their team, while not wearing some huge, attention-gathering symbol of decadence.

    I’m not suggesting that the style shown above should replace what we have come to expect from new championship rings. I realize that no staff member or player will want to replace a huge, blinged championship ring with the style we’re discussing. However under the right circumstances, it makes sense to offer this “personal”, small championship ring.

    What are your thoughts on this? Please let me know.

    A Great Presentation Box, With a Subpar Super Bowl Ring

    December 17, 2018


    Here’s a chance for a Green Bay Packers fan to acquire a “Super Bowl” ring at a fair price, and it comes with an awesome, gigantic wood presentation box:


    Super Bowl rings on ebay


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

    The item shown above is currently available on eBay with an asking price of $13,000.00; and the seller is accepting lower offers.

    It looks like this Super Bowl ring belonged to a member of the Packer’s Board of Directors, but keep in mind, it’s substantially smaller and less ostentatious than a player-sized Packer Super Bowl XXXI ring.

    What I really like about this sale is that it comes with some paperwork and much more importantly, comes with the player-sized, Super Bowl ring presentation box.

    The presentation box, as I have blogged about many times, was only issued for a single season (1996) to both the winning Super Bowl team and the losing Super Bowl team (Packers and Patriots). It is much larger than any other championship ring box, I’ve ever seen.
