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.

New England Patriots Super Bowl Rings


During halftime of the Patriots vs. the Broncos game, Robert Kraft and the organization honored the 22 members who were there to win three Super Bowl Championships with the Patriots.

Among the 17 who were in attendance for the event were Joe Andruzzi, Tom Ashworth, Troy Brown, Tedy Bruschi, Matt Chatham, Je’Rod Cherry, Kevin Faulk, Ted Johnson, Ty Law, Matt Light, Willie McGinest, Stephen Neal, Patrick Pass, David Patten, Lonie Paxton, Roman Phifer and Richard Seymour.

In keeping with a tradition they started during their first super bowl run, the players chose to be announced as a team.

Of the remaining five players, Larry Izzo (New York Giants), Mike Vrabel (Houston Texans) and Adrian Klemm (UCLA) are currently on other active staffs and were not able to attend the event.

Two players from the team are still playing so obviously could not make it: Tom Brady and Adam Vinatieri.

“Every year, 2,000 people try to win a Super Bowl and only 53 succeed,” said Patriots owner Bob Kraft. “Since my family bought the team, more than 19,000 have competed in the NFL hoping to win and only 930 have won one. Only 22 of them of have won three Super Bowl titles in four years.”

All three gigantic championship rings were made by Jostens and are some of the largest Super Bowl rings ever made. There must have been a ton of championship rings on display prior to the event. I’m sure you can find tons of championship ring pictures on Twitter.

Congratulations to the players, coaches and staff for a remarkable run.

More Super Bowl Ring Photobombs!

October 27, 2014


When I saw this tweet, I couldn’t resist to blog about it:

New England Patriots Super Bowl XXXIX ring


We’ve seen people post pictures with rings upside down, or out of focus, or hilarious poses, and of course the huge championship ring hats, but here’s a new one: This Super Bowl ring fan snapped the photograph and posted a view of half the ring!

The half championship ring shown is the New England Patriots Super Bowl XXXIX ring back from the 2004 season. It was the Patriots third championship ring in four seasons and the last one the team has won.

To add insult to injury, the Twitter poster took a second photo, this time wearing the championship ring, however, the ring is so small, it’s difficult to see and appreciate the beauty of the super bowl ring.

To learn more about this ring, possibly the largest super bowl ring ever made, please use the search tool on the right

There is no doubt that someday, Bill Belichick will be in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

He started out in 1975 with the Baltimore Colts as a special assistant and than spent the next two seasons with the Detroit Lions. Next, it was on to the Broncos in 1978 as an assistant special teams coach. In 1979 he went to the Giants as a special teams coach and worked his way up to defensive coordinator from 1985 – 1990.

With his success as the defensive coordinator and two super bowl championships, he became a hot and sought after head coach prospect. He became the Cleveland Browns head coach in 1991 and lasted until the 1995 season and was then fired.

Next he spent one season in New England under Bill Parcells and then followed Parcells to the Jets from 1997-1999.

In 2000 he became the New England Patriots head coach and the rest is history.

Here are some of his amazing accomplishments:

He has won three super bowls with the Pats and two with the New York Giants. He as named NFL coach of the year 3 times. He has a 202-107 regular season record as a head coach and a 19-9 record in the post season.

Pictured are his many super bowl rings and AFC championship rings. For further information on each ring, search our blog site (tools on the right) using words such as “Patriots” and “Giants”. Information about each superbowl ring and championship ring will come up.

Tom Brady and Eli Manning’s 5 Super Bowl Championship Rings

September 26, 2014


The only other active quarterback that has at least two winning Super Bowl rings is Ben Roethlisberger.

Tom Brady and Eli Manning and their 5 super bowl championship Rings


Here’s a picture of Tom Brady and Eli Mannings 5 spectacular Super Bowl Championship rings:

Tom Brady and Eli Manning's Super Bowl championship rings


Brady’s were all made by Jostens and his last two winning rings are huge! Manning’s two were made by Tiffany and Company”

The ring on the left is from the Patriot’s first Super Bowl Victory – Super Bowl XXXVI. This ring sets the reoccurring theme on all the following rings. All three of Brady’s rings are made of solid white gold, covered with gorgeous white diamonds, and their colorful logo prominently displayed. This ring was considered quite large when it was made, possibly the largest super bowl ring ever made at that time.

The super bowl XXXVI ring is loaded with 144 diamonds and 2.63 carats. The 14K white gold ring weighed in at 72 grams. The wood presentation box was a magnificent ring holder with the super bowl XXXVI logo on top. You can see all of the presentation boxes in the Super Bowl Ring Gallery, a link is provided on this website’s home page.

The next ring shown, unquestionably was the largest super bowl ring every produced at the time it was awarded. This super bowl XXXVIII hit the 100 gram mark. It has 104 diamonds and two huge marquise diamonds, symbolizing the team’s second World Championship. The 14 carat white gold ring contained 5.05 carats of white diamonds and baguettes.

The wood presentation box is even larger than the Super Bowl XXXVI box. It contained two Lombardi trophies on the top and a football shaped window to allow the ring to be seen when the box was closed. You can see all of the presentation boxes in the Super Bowl Ring Gallery, a link is provided on this website’s home page.

The ring in the middle is the Patriots crowning achievement and the most stunning super bowl ring I have ever seen. This super bowl XXXIX ring is also made of 14K solid white gold and contains 111 diamonds. There are three Lombardi trophies to symbolize the team’s third world championship in four seasons. The ring is larger than the Super Bowl XXXVIII ring and is the largest ring ever produced (only the Ravens Super Bowl XLVII comes close.

A player once told me that this ring was too large and too heavy to wear everyday and he was a 300 pound, huge defensive lineman! Keep in mind that the Packers super bowl XLV ring is heavier, but not larger. This is because that ring is made of Platinum which is more costly and heavier than 14K gold.

The fourth ring from the left is the Giants Super Bowl XLII ring. The heavily favored, undefeated New England Patriots were upset by the Giants 17-14 in a thrilling game. In the picture above it looks like Brady has gotten over this huge loss.

The Giants chose Tiffany and Company to make this ring. It’s a large ring, weighing in at 72 grams and is made of solid 14K white gold. The ring contains three marquise diamonds inside of three Lombardi trophies to celebrate the teams third Super Bowl Championship. In a tribute to their sensational string of road victories that season, the team placed the phrase “Eleven Straight on The Road” on the side of the ring.

The last ring shown on the right is the Eli’s most current ring – the Giants fourth and final championship ring. The Super Bowl XLVI ring weighs in at a whopping 92 grams and is also produced by Tiffany & Company. The numerous blue rubies and blue stone on top is a visual improvement over Eli’s first Tiffany Super Bowl ring. The ring is made of 14K white solid gold.
