Actress Teri Hatcher Reveals “I have a real Super Bowl Ring”

November 27, 2014

Although she was a cheerleader for the 49ers, and may have received a cheerleaders version, Teri was later given a player’s version ring. Here’s How she got it…

San Francisco 49ers Super Bowl XXIX Ring

Steve Young … Jerry Rice … a few Super Bowl ring collectors I know….. and Teri Hatcher — they ALL have Super Bowl XXIX championship rings — even though a few of them, (including Teri) wasn’t actually on the team.

The former “Lois & Clark” star was actually a cheerleader for the 49ers during their 1984 championship run, but in the video you can watch below, she explains why she was allowed to enjoy the spoils of victory when the team beat the Chargers 10 seasons later.

There’s a reference in the video about wearing orange (it’s not about loyalty to a team), Teri just returned from New York where she gave a speech to the U.N. about eliminating domestic violence — and encouraged people to wear orange … the official color to unite women against Domestic Violence.

Here’s the video:

Please remember, I buy Super Bowl rings, I’d even buy Teri’s. You wish to sell any championship rings, please contact me.

Displaying Championship Rings – Part 2

November 26, 2014

A reader wrote to me after last week’s story on championship ring displays. He asked for some suggestions to showcase championship rings. Here’s more of what I do:

championship ring display case

The photo above shows championship rings housed and protected in a high quality Acrylic Display Case. Acrylic cases are great ways for a sports memorabilia collectors to display many types of items. They are as clear as glass and come in all types of styles and sizes.

Some companies will even build displays to your exact specifications. Unlike cheap plastic displays from many years ago, these promise not to yellow over time (although they are easily scratched so try to keep them away from young children).

The home-plate design was originally made to display baseballs. The numerous ball holders are well designed, and will hold championship rings. As your collection grows, and you have too many championship rings, you can put them in-between the holders and create a multi-level effect that’s pleasing to the eye.

While my case locks, it would not offer any real protection from a thief. So the first thing I recommend is that your valuable championship rings should be kept in the large vault found at commercial banks. I take a lot of photos of the rings so I don’t feel the need to keep them around the house where they could get destroyed by fire or lost by theft. I recommend this to anyone buying championship rings.

I do keep minor league, some college football, and replica championship rings around and because of their low value, I don’t mind displaying them. I also like to display replica super bowl rings. As long as these rings stay locked in their display, they continue to look great, even after years of ownership.

While Acrylic is great for displaying championship rings, the thin shelving may sag in the middle over time due to too much weight. I would recommend staying away from acrylic shelves with long, unsupported spans. The home-plate shape is great because there are no long spans and after a few years use, the shelves have not sagged. I would also recommend a mirror behind the shelves to really show off the rings and last, a locking device.

These cases can be found at memorabilia shows or on the internet.

Please do share your display pictures, and if you give permission, I will show it on this blog.

Please know that if decide you want to sell a Championship ring (especially if you want to sell Super Bowl rings or the conference championship rings) I buy championship rings.

Another Super Bowl Ring Photobomb

November 21, 2014

Gee, if you are lucky enough to take a picture wearing a super bowl ring, could you conjure up a normal simile?

Baltimore Ravens Super Bowl Ring

The last couple of years, pictures of lucky individuals getting a rare chance to wear a championship ring have been popping up all over on Twitter.

Most of the photos are really cool, showing the recipient as happy as can be and sometimes even the famous ring owner appears in the photo.

These pictures help my sanity since it reminds me I’m not crazy to want to buy championship rings.

The photograph above, shows a girl wearing a Baltimore Ravens Super Bowl XLVII ring. She posted this photo on Twitter, and I am wondering if she and her friends regret their facial expressions.

Oh well, perhaps they will get another chance someday to be photographed with a championship ring.

Please remember, I don’t pose for Twitter with my championship rings, but I love to buy super bowl rings. If you have any championship ring to sell, please contact me.

Rochester Nighthawks Championship Ring Breaks the Mold

November 17, 2014

Many championship rings look the same as ring manufacturers sometimes fall into a creative rut. That’s not the case with this championship ring:

lacrosse championship ring

Never heard of the Rochester Nighthawks? Neither did I until I saw this championship ring on twitter.

The Nighthawks are a professional lacrosse team, playing in the National Lacrosse League. The team plays in Rochester, up-state New York and plays at the Blue Cross Arena at the War Memorial.

This team was previously a member of the Major Indoor Lacrosse League from 1995 to 1997. They have been members of the NLL since the leagues inception back in 1998 season.

The Nighthawks reached the playoffs in each of their first 13 seasons, from 1995 to 2007.

Congratulations to the Nighthawks on being presented with such a beautiful championship ring.

Please remember that I buy championship rings so if you are looking to sell your ring, please contact me.

Look at the Championship Ring Box I Found

November 16, 2014

Recently I Purchased a Few Championship Ring presentation boxes. The New England Patriots Super Bowl Ring Box shown below is the cream of the crop from the purchase:

super bowl ring box

Championship ring collectors will attest to how frustrating it can be when buying a championship ring that does not include the proper presentation box.

Perhaps no championship ring needs it’s ring box more than the Super Bowl rings of the last two decades.

Presentation boxes for many championship rings have grown a lot over the last two decades since they need to house the ever-growing championship rings.

Recently I came across someone who had collected ring boxes and he sold me a few championship ring boxes. The picture above is the proper ring box for the New England Patriots Super Bowl XXXIX ring.

The Super Bowl XXXIX ring is perhaps the biggest super bowl ring ever, so the box design and construction needed to match the ring in terms of size and style.

This super bowl ring box pays tribute to the three Super Bowl victories and, has the three official super bowl logos on the box along with three Vince Lombardi trophies.

The Super Bowl ring seen in the photos above did not come with the ring (If they did, I would have bought that super bowl ring in a heart-beat!)

So what am I going to do with these championship ring boxes that do not include the rings?

I will hold onto them in case someday I buy a super bowl ring or buy a championship ring that needs the proper box. Or, perhaps a collector will contact me and want to buy them.

I know at least two New England Patriots Super Bowl XXXIX rings were sold without the original boxes, so while I don’t sell super bowl rings, I might sell the super bowl ring box.

Please remember that I buy championship rings. My favorites (meaning I pay the most money) is buying Super Bowl rings. Please contact me if you would like to discuss selling your championship ring.
