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