Two Gorgeous Football Championship Rings Spotted In One Presentation Box

November 8, 2014

Two team doctors, and long time friends from different football leagues, recently caught up with each other and took this great picture of their championship rings:

NFL and CFL Championship Rings

Championship ring collectors who don’t live in Canada, know that the Canadian Football League produces some amazing Grey Cup Championship rings. Those championship rings rival NFL Super Bowl rings in size, style, and bling.

So when this photograph of player-size championship rings appeared recently on Twitter, I couldn’t resist to write about it.

The BC Lion ring from 2011 and the Seahawks ring from Super Bowl XLVIII look great together. Equal in size, diamonds and bling, I’m not sure which one is nicer. Football fans hate ties in football, but perhaps this is one tie we can all live with.

Congratulations to both team doctors, it’s great that they received player-sized championship rings!

If anyone reading this blog has a BC Lions championship ring for sale, I will buy that championship ring (and in fact, I will buy any championship ring).

Cal Murphy (March 12, 1932 – February 18, 2012) was a Canadian football coach, general manager and scout. He was best known for this time with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers of the Canadian Football League (CFL).

Cal Murphy played one season in the CFL, back in 1956 for the BC Lions.

He won the Annis Stukus Trophy (Coach of the year award) in 1983 and 1984 when he was with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.

In his career as a coach and general manager, he led various teams to nine Grey Cup championships. That accomplishment helped earn him a place in the Canadian Football Hall of Fame.

Of note to NFL fans, in his later years he spent time as a coach for the Frankfurt Galaxy and then time as a scout for the Indianapolis Colts of the National Football League.

Brandon London shows off his Championship Rings!

June 4, 2014

Brandon is sporting his Montreal Alouettes 2010 Grey Cup and New York Giants Super Bowl XLII rings.

Canadian Football League and New York Giants Super Bowl ring

Brandon is currently playing with the Montreal Alouettes in the Canadian Football League.

While super bowl rings are usually thought of as the biggest of the huge championship rings, it’s apparent, thanks to Brandon’s photo, that the Canadian Football League championship ring is bigger!

Here are some facts about each ring:

The 2010 Alouettes ring is a diamond-studded piece of jewelry, featuring two Grey Cups laid end to end to symbolize the team’s back to back championships of the past two seasons. It also has each player’s picture and name on one side, with the score and other details of their 21-18 victory over Saskatchewan last November on the other.

The only other team to ever offer a player’s picture on the side of the ring was the Los Angeles Lakers.

The ring has three large diamonds to represent the three Cups won under Robert Wetenhall’s ownership, and four smaller ones for Cups won by previous Alouettes teams. There are 14 diamonds in a team logo to signify the number of games they won in 2010.

The New York Giants 2007 Super Bowl ring was made by Tiffany and is 14K white gold. The ring has three large marquee diamonds, each representing the three super bowl championships the team had won.

One side of the ring contains the score of the game (Giants 17, Patriots 14) and the other says “Eleven Straight on the Road,” a nod to the NFL record set by the Giants in 2007.
