I’m often asked what I think the of the cheap knock off Super Bowl and Championship rings found on eBay. Here’s why the old adage, “A Pictures is Worth a Thousand Words” is so true:
The championship ring shown at the above left is a real Patriots 2014 Super Bowl ring. The Super Bowl on the right, is well…… a piece of crap.
Please note, I photoshopped the two Super Bowl rings together, so while I did not purposely enhance the rings or make them appear worse, I did size them identically. So please keep in mind that I have no idea if the two rings are this close in size. One of these Super Bowl rings could be a little or a lot larger or smaller than the other.
Looking on ebay at championship rings, I believe I may have stumbled upon some cheap replica 2014 Super Bowl rings that look closer to the original, but I am not sure if they are actually the ring you receive when you buy it.
You could wind up with the beauty on the right, and I would be embarrassed to wear it, or display it.
How the NFL, Jostens, and eBay allows this to happen boggles my mind.
But they do.
I am not condoning or recomending these fake championship rings, and I have no affiliation whatsoever, with any of these manufactures or sellers.
Let me know what you think, and if any of you have purchased a cheap replica 2014 Super Bowl ring, email me. I’ll try to publish your thoughts on this matter.
Please remember, I buy super bowl rings (real, not replicas or salesman samples) so if you have a championship ring to sell, please let me know.
