I’ve often said that the most expensive championship ring that could ever come to auction would be Joe Namath’s original Super Bowl III ring:
In Super Bowl III, quarterback Joe Namath led his N.Y. Jets to a stunning 16-7 victory over the Baltimore Colts after he guaranteed a win.
The Jets were 18-point underdogs entering the Super Bowl as the AFL champions. The Green Bay Packers of the NFL had badly beaten the first two AFL champions with 25 and 19 point victories in the first two Super Bowls.
Here’s what Namath said regarding the Super Bowl: “Winning the championship, especially in team sports, it takes more than one guy,” Namath said. “Being a part of a group that worked so hard for so long, going through the valleys, the tough times, staying together and then reaching that peak together — we did it, and that’s one of the things that I cherish.”
Namath’s Super Bowl ring, made by Balfour in 14K solid gold, is tiny by today’s standards, but there’s not a more valuable Super Bowl ring on the planet.
