This Cubs World Series Ring Won’t Give Up

November 7, 2017

Like the mantra says on the bottom of this championship ring, “We Never Quit”, and neither does the owner of this gorgeous championship ring:

Cubs 2016 World Series ring for sale

The Photos above (and plenty more) were recently sent to me by a very excited jewelry store, looking to sell this scout’s 2016 World Series ring.

This is the second time in as many weeks that I was contacted by a seller (or middle-man if you will) about buying this player-sized championship ring with real diamonds.

In both cases the person peddling the championship ring had no idea what Lelands went through, having to pull the championship ring from their auction as the Cubs demanded that the World Series ring could not be sold on the open market.

In both instances, I told the seller to google the words Lelands, and Chicago Cubs ring and see for themselves all the trouble this championship ring has caused in it’s short history.

The scout selling the ring is still asking in the $80,000 price rage which in my opinion is ludicrous. Good luck buying this World Series ring, and then deciding you want to sell it using an auction or public method of getting the word out.

At least the players and coaches are allowed to sell their Cubs 2016 World Series rings, so if you want to buy this championship ring version, save your money and wait for a player or coaches ring.

I’ll stay away from this one, and hopefully won’t hear from any other sellers looking to unload this championship ring with so many strings attached to it. Search my blog button on the right or google selling of this ring for additional information why this championship ring can not be sold.

Meanwhile, please remember, I buy championship rings as long as there are no restrictions attached. If you would like to sell your championship ring in complete privacy, please contact me.

Super Bowl Ring Traveling Road Show Continues

November 6, 2017

The latest Super Bowl championship ring display has been set up at St. Cloud State University:

Jostens Super Bowl Ring road show

As we get closer to Super Bowl 52, and Minnesota gets ready to host the huge event, some NFL history has landed at St. Cloud State University.

Jostens, who’s made more Super Bowl rings than any other championship ring manufacturer, has put up their traveling display with replicas (also known as Salesman samples) of the 33 Super Bowl rings they’ve made for various championship teams.

Most of the Super Bowl ring designs have features that are unique and related to each winning team. For example, the Patriots Super Bowl 51 ring contains five large diamonds, and a total of 238 diamonds, that cover the championship ring.

Jostens, a local Minnesota company, and their CEO Chuck Mooty, boasts that the company is very proud to share what they’ve done for the NFL and this was the idea for the traveling championship ring display.

“We are thrilled to partner with the Minnesota Super Bowl Host Committee in a way that only Jostens can: by sharing the iconic rings we’ve created for these championship teams with fans across our great state.”

The Super Bowl rings over the decades have also grown in size and are now much more elaborate and contain a lot more bling than the earlier versions.

The Super Bowl rings will be on display until Sunday in the Atwood Memorial Center. From 7:00 a.m. until Midnight Friday, and 8:00 a.m. – Midnight Saturday and Sunday. SCSU is the last stop on Jostens “championship tour”.

What a great idea Jostens had to have their Super Bowl ring traveling road show throughout the Minneapolis and St. Paul areas this fall.

Police Recover 1930s Stolen Stanley Cup Championship Ring

November 2, 2017

An extremely valuable and special sports memorabilia item has been recovered by local police in Nanaimo, after a group of men accused of breaking into vehicles were arrested.

vintage Stanley cup championship rings

Nanaimo is a city on the east coast of Vancouver Island, and located in British Columbia, Canada.

Shown above is a Toronto Maple Leafs Stanley Cup ring from a file photo, and may not be the same year and team ring as the stolen Stanley Cup Championship ring. That’s because, in a wise move, the Nanaimo police department is not providing a description of the championship ring recovered, explaining that the owner will be able to describe it to help prove it’s their championship ring.

So if you’ve had your 1930s Stanley Cup championship ring stolen in the Nanaimo area, let the police know.

The police seized the championship ring after thieves broke into at least a dozen cars last week along Summerhill Place near Dufferin Crescent.

Three men, between the ages of 23 and 29, were arrested in conjunction with the robberies.

Anyone who had their vehicle broken into in the area of Summerhill Place is asked to contact the Nanaimo police at 250-754-2345 and reference the case number 2017-32361.

Please remember as always, I buy championship rings. And if you do too, this story is a great reminder to get proof that the original owner sold their ring or is selling their championship ring. Please contact me if you would like to sell your championship ring in complete privacy.

Championship Ring Hunting on eBay

November 1, 2017

Searching by high-to-low pricing on eBay occasionally can yield some great championship ring finds:

championship rings for sale on ebay

Not sure if every championship ring collector does this, but I’m sure some do. I often search for championship rings on ebay, sorting from highest to lowest asking prices.

These eBay searches are always interesting. The insanely overpriced championship rings – like the Bart Starr Super Bowl II ring that was finally proven not to be Starr’s actual ring, floats towards the top, with it’s asking price of $100,000. Hell will freeze over before someone plops down five figures for that championship ring.

Once you’re past the insanely expensive championship rings you can find some reasonably priced offerings. If you keep going lower, and you dip below $3,000, you can find some interesting championship rings priced reasonably (as the photo above shows).

Please note I’m not affiliated with any championship rings being offered on eBay and I’m not affiliated with the sellers and I’m not endorsing any particular rings. Although just for clarity, I am selling a New England Patriots, extraordinarily rare Super Bowl XXXIX championship ring box on the site currently.

The auction and eBay championship ring hunt can often be exciting and rarely dull.

You still need to be careful about rings with no title or proof the original owner sold the ring. And make sure the championship ring is not damaged, or not authentic and that the seller will actually send you the item! Many of the sellers on eBay stand behind their items and offer authentic offerings.

Good Hunting!

Still Time To Win A Patriots Player Size Super Bowl LI Ring

October 30, 2017

Imagine winning this massive Super Bowl ring, and if you don’t, at least you’ve helped a charity do some good:

Patriots Super Bowl Ring LI raffle

The New England Patriots announced a while back that the organization is raffling off a championship ring as a fundraiser to benefit the Patriots Charity Foundation. The team charity is a nonprofit organization, started by Robert Kraft. The foundation’s website details that they donate money to charitable and philanthropic causes in the New England area. The organization has a focus on programs that help children and struggling families.

Pats fans, and championship ring enthusiasts like myself, who want to participate in the drawing for the Super Bowl ring and give to a very worthwhile cause have some budgetary options: They can purchase a single ticket for $10, or three tickets for $25, 15 tickets for $100 or even go all-out and get 100 tickets for $500. Just saying, ever notice the winner is usually the person who buys a single ticket?

The Super Bowl LI ring (shown above), commemorates the greatest comeback in Super Bowl history. The player-size winning championship ring will feature a team logo and the shape of five Lombardi trophies.

The winning raffle Super bowl ring will contain real white gold with more than 280 real diamonds and an amazing carat weight of 5.1.

According to Jostens, the ring designer and manufacturer, it’s the undisputed biggest Super Bowl ring ever made — even larger than the Patriots’ 2015 rings that were valued at $36,500 each.

The drawing for the Super Bowl ring raffle will be held on December 11th, 2017.

To donate and/or participate in the championship ring raffle, here’s the link:
