Ten Hidden Details In Championship Rings And Their Special Meanings

April 14, 2017


See how many of these ten Championship Ring hidden meanings you knew existed:


Hidden Meanings in Championship Rings


1. Chicago Cubs 2016 – The Goat head shown in the Cubs new World Series ring above is there to symbolize and remind the team that the curse of the goat is finally over.

2. Cleveland Cavaliers, 2016 – The different colored stones found on the bottom of the championship ring represent the results of each game in the finals. This means the championship ring will always remind the Cavaliers of their tremendous comeback when they were down 3 games to one.

3. Golden State Warriors, 2015 – Visible only under a black light, the championship ring has four stones that are fluorescent to symbolize the four championships in Warriors history. Those years are 2015, 1975, 1956, and 1947.

4. Boston Red Sox, 2013 – The inside of their World Series ring pays tribute to their special season with a “Bearded Brothers” image and 10-30-13, the date on which the team won the World Series.

5. Seattle Seahawks, 2013 – It’s not easy to view, but there are three special phrases engraved inside the ring: “Leave no doubt,” “24/7,” and “What’s next.”

6. Miami Heat, 2013 – Below the iconic Larry O’Brien Trophy on the side of this championship ring, you can spot three Chinese characters. They mean “sacrifice.”

7. St. Louis Cardinals, 2011 – Look closely at the side of their World Series ring and you can see a little squiggle above the “50”. That actually is the iconic Rally Squirrel that ran across home plate during a game against the Philadelphia Phillies.

8. Los Angeles Lakers, 2010 – The championship ring manufacturer included a piece of the game used basketball from the final Game 7 against the Boston Celtics and included the piece on the top of their championship rings.

9. New Orleans Saints, 2009 – It’s not difficult to spot on the Super Bowl ring musical notes. It turns out those musical notes are the actual notes form ‘When the Saints Go Marching In’.

10. San Antonio Spurs, 2007 – Easily seen on the side of their championship ring is a hammer breaking through a rock with a few diamonds in it. Why is this on the side of their championship ring? Because a mantra of the team that season was – “Pound The Rock.” The idea is if you pound a rock with enough force, it turns into diamonds. And to the team it meant to work hard all season and the result would be diamonds as-in a diamond championship ring for their hard work.

Fans Fascination With Championship Rings Goes Back A Long Way

April 13, 2017


In the modern age of instant Internet information and photos, it’s no wonder championship ring admiration has exploded. But here’s proof that Championship ring enthusiasm is much older and not a recent fad:


baseball hall of fame world series rings exhibit


The photograph above shows a 1941 Baseball Hall of Fame exhibit of World Series rings. Back then, World Series rings and championship rings from other sports were more like traditional college rings and almost always contained one mid-size to small diamond, even if the team, such as the Yankees had already collected numerous championships and rings.

And back then, unlike today, High School teams, both male and female, weren’t receiving gigantic binged out championship rings, and college sports championship rings back then were also quite rare.

If you visit the Baseball Hall of Fame today, you’ll see a similar, but much larger thick-glass case with World Series rings. The Hall now has a sample of every single World Series ring made, and soon will be updated with the Chicago Cubs 2016 World Series ring.

Before yesterday’s baseball game, the Indians had a pregame ceremony to honor their 2016 team for reaching the 2016 World Series. Sadly for them, they fell short in the fall classic, but because they were in it, they were issued the gorgeous championship ring shown above.

As we cover in this championship ring blog all the time, every team that loses the World Series and Super Bowl, is awarded a league championship ring. So keep in mind, the Indians organization is not doing anything out of the ordinary.

The top of Cleveland’s new championship ring features the Indians ‘block C’ logo. It contains 94 white sparkling diamonds that represent their 94 regular season wins. One side of the championship ring features the American League logo with a diamond substituting the usually seen baseball, and five red garnets that help to symbolize the five additional American League championships in franchise history.

The other side of the championship ring features the three light towers and iconic scoreboard silhouette surrounding the player’s name with their uniform number.

Jostens had a terrific baseball season too, as they were awarded contracts to design and manufacture both the Indians and Cubs championship rings.

Please remember as always, I buy championship rings. If you would like to sell your championship ring, please get in touch with me.

Chicago Cubs 2016 World Series rings


No one can dispute that the Cubs new World Series rings are gorgeous and well done. I love the bold colors and use of red and blue stones to create a tremendous binged-out and well deserved championship ring.

The 2016 World Series rings, the team’s first ever World Series ring, will have a heavy dose of symbolism with the team’s history well choreographed in the championship ring design.

Few details have emerged about the championship ring, but it was learned that the Cubs, like so many other professional sports teams, designed different tiers of Championship Rings for players, staffers and employees.

The Cubs 2016 World Series rings will contain at least 108 diamonds to commemorate the gap between their 1908 World Series victory and last year’s title.

There will be a lot more details about the World Series ring to emerge once they are given out and press releases are issued to describe additional details on these gorgeous World Series rings.

Cool Chargers Championship Ring on eBay

April 10, 2017


Here’s another beautiful and historic championship ring on eBay that can be acquired for a good price:


Chargers AFL Championship ring


I am not affiliated with this championship ring or the seller. I’m just passing along good deals when I see them.

My gut feeling is this championship ring may not be original, however, it is a player championship ring and looks to be completely authentic.

Championship rings this old, are rarely in this pristine condition, so it could very well be that the original player had the ring repaired or redone by Jostens.

Awardees of championship rings are allowed, unlike collectors, dealers, or auction houses to have their championship rings repaired or remade by Balfour and Jostens.

AFL championship rings, before the NFL/AFL merger are rare, yet sell in the market place for relatively very little money compared to Super Bowl rings.

Some years, the teams winning the AFL championship would put “AFL Champions” on their championship rings, other teams would put “World Champions” as the Chargers did on this ring. Although no one thought at this time, that an AFL team could defeat the NFL Champions in a head-to-head match up.

Please remember, I buy championship rings, all the time. So if you have a championship ring you would like to sell, please contact me and we can do a deal in complete privacy.
