1988 Jose Canseco Championship Ring Back on eBay

April 1, 2016


Six months ago you could have purchased this championship ring for $100,000. Now the seller is demanding $150,000:


1988 Jose Canseco A's Championship Ring


Talk about inflation, the asking price of a 1988 Jose Canseco A’s American League Championship ring has risen 50% in six months.

The seller is so firm in his asking price, that he’s not budging on the price by offering a “best offer” option, commonly seen for high-ticket items on ebay.

The championship ring is not even a World Series winning championship ring, it’s from the season the A’s, who were heavily favored in the series, lost to the Dodgers in five games. That World series is best remembered for the walk-off home run Kirk Gibson hit. Gibson, was barely able to walk due to an injury suffered during the NLCS.

The price for this championship ring is ludicrous, but hey, you never know, someone just might buy it and put it up on ebay down the road for $200,000.

Please remember I buy championship rings (just not at these prices). If you would like to sell your championship ring privately, please contact me.

The 2016 Stanford’s Rose Bowl Championship Ring

March 31, 2016


About two weeks ago, the Stanford University Football program received their 2016 Rose Bowl rings from their dominant victory against the Iowa Hawkeyes:

(Click picture below for a larger picture)Stanford 2016 Rose Bowl Championship Ring

Similar to their performance in the Rose Bowl, the championship ring tops are impressive.

The sides of the championship rings, commonly called shanks, are shown above. While I like the championship ring top and one of the shanks, the side showing three prestigious college football trophies is very lacking and not up to the standards of most other championship rings.

The “good” shank, shows the lopsided football score, a beautiful image of the Rose Bowl logo (painted in vivid color) and has room for the player’s jersey number.

With their dominate Rose Bowl victory back in January 2016, Stanford finished their season with an impressive 12-2 record and finished ranked third in the nation. In an unusual feature for a championship ring, the number three ranking is featured on the top of the championship ring.

No word on who made this championship ring, but it was probably Jostens.

Congratulations to the Stanford team and for their nice championship rings (even though I am not a fan of one of the three sides of the championship ring!)

Please remember as always, I buy championship rings so if you would like to sell your championship ring privately, please let me know.

Howie Long Claims His Son Took a Huge Pay Cut to Win a Super Bowl Ring

March 29, 2016


Sports fans know that players want to win championship rings very badly. Sometimes they even take a lot less money to help their chances of winning one of these:

Championship rings and super bowl rings


Being successful every year and being in the Super Bowl hunt annually, has provided the New England Patriots a huge advantage over the NFL’s other teams: Football players will sometimes sign with the Pats for less money than they could get with other teams.

Chris Long is a perfect example of this.

The former Rams defensive end left a significant amount lot of money on the table when he signed a contract with the Patriots two weeks ago, according to his father, football media star and football great, Howie Long.

Howie claims his son could’ve gotten a much larger salary elsewhere, but he signed with the Patriots because he wants to win a Super Bowl ring or two.

And realistically, who gives him a better chance for a Super Bowl ring than Tom Brady, Bill Belichick, and owner Robert Kraft.

Please remember, I buy championship rings all the time. If you would like to sell your championship ring privately, please contact me.

Tennessee Vols Awarded Championship Rings

March 28, 2016


The Tennessee Volunteers football players, coaches, and staff added another championship ring to their collection:

Tennesee Vols Outback Bowl Rings


The photo above shows the beautiful new championship ring from the Vol’s Outback Bowl victory over Northwestern. The championship rings were handed out over the weekend.

As is standard practice these days, photos of the gorgeous championship rings immediately started circulating on social media on Saturday.

The Vols demolished Northwestern 45 to 6 on New Years Day in Tampa, Florida. The victory, capped a 9-4 season that was the teams most successful year since 2007.

It was the Vols second dominant victory in a Florida bowl game against a Big Ten team in a row.

“Always love handing these out every year!!! #OutbackBowlChamps,” Tennessee coach Butch Jones tweeted Saturday, along with a few pictures of the championship rings.

There’s no word on which championship ring manufacturer created the rings, but it’s a safe bet it was probably Jostens.

No doubt, Tennessee will be looking for more championship rings for the upcoming 2016 season. The Vols will have many their starters returning on both sides of the ball from last season, and word is that the Vols are a popular pick to win the SEC East title. If they win, it would be their first SEC championship since 1998.

Congratulations to the Volunteers for their successful season and stunning championship rings.

Please remember, I buy championship rings, so if you have one that you would like to sell a championship ring, please contact me.

March 25, 2016


I don’t know any championship ring manufacturer that does better marketing than Jostens. Case in point:

The illustration above made it’s way over the internet this week and shows some terrific NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship Rings that Jostens has designed and manufactured in recent years.

The championship rings represent so many Colleges and Universities that have had success in the NCAA tournament.

Seeing 16 wonderful championship rings, all together really brings home how stunning these rings can be.

And how nice is it that we see a championship ring or two made of yellow-gold and notice how every single ring is stylish and not overly done in too much bling.

Congratulations to Jostens for making such enduring championship rings and for showing championship ring enthusiasts and NCAA college Basketball fans your marvelous products.

Special thanks to “Ridenlow71″, a frequent contributor on the sportslogos.net championship ring forum for bringing this illustration to my attention.
