The Championship Rings From Super Bowl XI

February 24, 2015


Continuing the blogs on the two championship rings awarded from every Super Bowl, here’s the next pair; an inside look at the two championship rings from Super Bowl XI:

Super Bowl XI Championship Rings


As I’ve written tons of times, please accept my apologies that the above photo contains my website address. If I didn’t include this in the picture, other web sites would steal my pictures and eBay sellers who make those incredibly cheap replicas in China that don’t look as realistic as true authentic championship rings, will use my photos to claim the pictures are of their replica championship rings!

Almost every picture I use on this blog series of the two championship rings are from my personal championship ring collection (in this specific blog, I am using only one ring from my collection). As you know, these rings are extremely rare in the hobby place and are very seldom (or perhaps never) photographed in pairs from specific Super Bowls. So please excuse my effort to keep these photos from being misused and misrepresented. When I do use a picture found on the internet, I promise, I won’t place my website over the picture.

The ring on the left is the Oakland Raiders first winning Super Bowl Ring from their 1976 season. No team has made the effort the Raiders have to keep their championship ring theme the same over the decades since the Super Bowl started. I’ve detailed in past blogs how the Raiders championship rings remain the same style – you can search using the tools on the right for stories and examples of Raider championship rings.

Designed and manufactured by Lenox (who eventually was sold to Jostens) in 14K solid white gold, the ring contains one large diamond and 24 smaller diamonds. The ring weighs approximately 46 grams.

Like so many other winning Super Bowl rings, the Oakland Raiders Super Bowl XI ring is extremely rare and in high demand by Raider fans and highly coveted by championship ring collectors. Very few of these rings have made it to the collecting community and the few that have, have sold for a lot of money.

In a tradition that continues to this day, the team that loses the Super Bowl is still recognized as a champion of their respective conference. I only know of one Minnesota Vikings 1976 championship ring that has hit the market place and unfortunately, the manufacturer and the weight of the ring was not provided. Boy, talk about a rare ring!

Please know that I buy super bowl rings and buy championship rings too, so do let me know if you have a championship ring you would like to sell.

The Seattle Seahawks Super Bowl Ring Will Be Here Soon

June 2, 2014


If the rings are anywhere near as good as the invitations that went out, this is going to be some ring.

Seattle Seahawks Super Bowl Ring Ceremony


On twitter, Team Doctor, Dr. Ed Khalfayan showed off his invitation to the upcoming Seattle Seahawks Super Bowl Ring Ceremony. The invitation came with his name and ribbon tied to a customized bottle of Dom Perignon champagne.

The bottle, shown above, contains the Super Bowl XLVIII logo and the Seattle Seahawks logo and the score from the game.

Also included is the game location and date.

It won’t be long before these bottles wind up on ebay and go for a pretty penny.

The Ring Ceremony is scheduled for Thursday June 19th, so unless there is leak on the internet, we will all have to wait for that day to learn more about the ring and see pictures.
