Head Coach Bill Belichick’s Amazing Super Bowl Ring Stash

April 3, 2015


Mike Loyko, tweeted this photo – and one mind boggling statistic about Super Bowl Rings:

NFL Head coaches super bowl rings


Pictured above is every current NFL head coach. This photo was recently taken in Arizona, when every head coach assembled for the NFL annual meetings.

They annual meetings, are an opportunity for team owners, general mangers and coaches to come together to go over important agenda items.

Best dressed by the way, or should I say worst dressed, or perhaps most casual, goes to Andy Reid. Reid is shown with his Hawaiian shirt and shorts on the far left.

Twitter, Mike Loyko, made an amazing and insightful comment about the 2015 coaching class: Bill Belichick has a staggering 36% of the winning Super Bowl rings. This statistic is derived by combining all the winning Super Bowl championship rings that were won while they were head coaches.

For us non-math majors, there are 11 Super Bowl titles among the head coaching class (not including super bowl rings acquired as players or assistant coaches) and Belichick has 4 of them.

Having more than a third of the winning championship rings is an amazing achievement, congratulations to the Patriots and to Bill Belichick.

Please remember, I buy championship rings. I’d like to hear from you if you wish to sell your championship ring.

That’s A Great Super Bowl Ring and Ticket Display!

April 2, 2015


This gem recently debuted on Ebay.   It demonstrates a terrific way to show off Championship Rings and the tickets associated with the title.

Championship Ring display


Hats off to the creator of this championship ring display – this is a great design!

I’m not selling the item and I don’t know the seller, but in my humble opinion, I believe it would look great on the wall!

At first I thought the championship ring display was rather expensive – the asking price is $2,849.00. However, there is the “make an offer” button which offers the opportunity to purchase the display for less money.

While close to $3,000 seems rather expensive, if you divide the cost by 48 super bowls, the cost is $59.35 each. That’s about the low end of the costs of purchasing those cheap replica championship rings made in China. While the seller promised to include the Super Bowl 49 and 50 rings later on, I wouldn’t hold your breath waiting for him to remember to send it to you down the road.

The issues I see with the display is that obviously the championship rings and tickets are not real. Additionally, the tickets are much smaller than authentic super bowl tickets.

Another issue is that there does not appear to be glass or plexiglass on unit to protect the rings from dust. Worse, the rings could fall to the floor and get damaged when dusting. And finally, with open access, there is no protection from someone easily swiping a championship ring.

Please remember, I buy championship rings! Contact me if you are ready to sell your championship ring.

Phillip Buchanon’s NFL Championship Ring Is Lost

April 1, 2015


The 2002 AFC Championship ring was left on car roof at a Delray Beach gas station:

Oakland Raiders 2002 AFC Championship Ring


Former University of Miami and NFL football star Phillip Buchanon admits he was “young and stupid” during the early part of his 10-year career in the NFL.

Part of that immaturity, he says, was giving away money and materialistic things to family and friends. That included his 2002 Oakland Raiders AFC Championship ring. He gave that ring to his sports agent, Boris Banks.

And now that ring was lost and could be gone for good.

Boris Banks lost it March 19, when he left the AFC championship ring in a small black bag on the top of his SUV at a Delray Beach gas station.

“I was in a hurry and I just forgot about it when I drove off,” said Banks. “I drove back and couldn’t find it. I was like ‘Oh my God. I just lost the ring.’”

Buchanon, now 34, said he wasn’t aware that Banks had lost the ring, but did remember giving it to him in 2003.

“Honestly, I had forgotten about it,” said Buchanon, who lives in Miami. “I knew he had it. I guess it will show up somewhere.”

Banks said he was planning to tell Buchanon he lost the diamond studded championship ring.

“He was mad because he lost the Super Bowl that year,” Banks recalled. “He said if he wasn’t going to have the Super Bowl ring, he wasn’t going to wear anything else.”

Many players feel that way about getting a championship ring after losing the Super Bowl. Very often it’s a reminder that they came up short and didn’t win the big game.

The championship ring, shown above is a very desirable ring – containing five prominent marquise diamonds, each shaped like a football. The five large diamonds represent the Raiders five appearances in the Super Bowl. The championship ring also contains 10 smaller diamonds and was made by Jostens in solid 14K white gold.

There is a reward for the lost championship ring. Anyone with information on the championship ring or Banks’ bag of personal belongings is urged to contact Detective Oscar Leon at (561) 243-7868.

Please remember, I buy championship rings. If you want to sell your championship ring, please let me know by text, email, or cell phone.

7 Super Bowl Rings, 3 Great QB’s, the World’s Best Golfer, and Augusta National

March 31, 2015


Recently, Rory McIlry, the #1 ranked golfer, arrived to the gym early.   Within minutes he was shocked to see Tom Brady, Peyton, and Eli Manning walk-in for a workout too.


(Click picture below for a larger picture)

Super Bowl Rings


Rory, was at Augusta National this month.   He arrived at the private golf facility’s gym to get in a quiet workout, before a round of golf.

Augusta National, home of the prestigious Masters   golf tournament, is considered by many to be the most beautiful and prestigious golf course in the world.

Unless you are a club member, or know a member, or are invited to play in the Masters   tournament, it is impossible to get on the course.

Rory, a past winner of the tournament is allowed to play the course so he can practice and prepare for the upcoming yearly tournament.

Tom Brady and the Manning brothers were guests of Augusta National members. Rory had no idea that the great quarterbacks were playing the golf course that day. And the three legendary qb’s, with seven super bowl rings and 11 total super bowl game appearances, had no idea they would meet the best golfer in the world.

Pictured above are six of the seven Super Bowl rings the three quarterbacks have won. Tom Brady has his fourth Super Bowl ring “or order” and he and the team should be receiving them sometime around June.

Please remember, I buy super bowl rings, so please let me know if you wish to sell a super bowl ring or championship ring.

The Championship Rings From Super Bowl XV

March 30, 2015


Continuing my blog on the two championship rings from every Super Bowl, here’s the next beautiful pair; an inside look at the two championship rings from Super Bowl XV.

Super Bowl XV Rings - Oakland Raiders


As I’ve written so many times, please accept my apologies that the above photo contains my website address. If I didn’t place this in the picture, other web sites would lift my photos and those eBay sellers who make the incredibly cheap replicas in China that don’t look as realistic as true authentic championship rings, will use the 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 very own personal championship ring collection. As you know, these rings are extremely rare in the hobby place and are rarely (or perhaps never) photographed in pairs from the specific Super Bowls. So once again, please excuse my effort to keep these photos from being misused. 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 second winning Super Bowl Ring from their 1980 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 for these blogs using the tools on the right to see additional 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 two large diamonds to celebrate their two super bowl victories. The ring also contains quite a few smaller diamonds, and weighs approximately 46 grams.

Like so many other winning Super Bowl rings, the Raiders Super Bowl XV ring is extremely rare and in high demand by Raider fans and highly coveted by championship ring collectors. Only one player ring has been sold publicly, HOF punter Ray Guy’s ring – it sold for $55,152.00. A few others have been sold privately.

In a tradition that continues to this day, the team that loses the Super Bowl is recognized as a champion of their respective conference. The Eagles NFC championship ring shown above lacked the dazzle that was becoming so prevalent with championship rings, however, no one could argue the ring is a beautiful and classic design.

There have been quite a few “salesman sample” rings that have hit the market. I am not sure if they are all real. A couple of real rings have sold publicly; a front office ring in the $5,000 range, and a player’s ring for $6,600.00.

The Eagles 1980 NFC ring was made by Jostens, in 10K yellow gold and weighs 44 grams.

As always, don’t forget, I buy super bowl rings and buy championship rings as well, so definitely let me know if you have a championship ring you want to sell.
