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.

The Championship Rings From Super Bowl XI

February 24, 2015


Continuing the blogs on the two championship rings awarded from every Super Bowl, here’s the next pair; an inside look at the two championship rings from Super Bowl XI:

Super Bowl XI Championship Rings


As I’ve written tons of times, please accept my apologies that the above photo contains my website address. If I didn’t include this in the picture, other web sites would steal my pictures and eBay sellers who make those incredibly cheap replicas in China that don’t look as realistic as true authentic championship rings, will use my 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 personal championship ring collection (in this specific blog, I am using only one ring from my collection). As you know, these rings are extremely rare in the hobby place and are very seldom (or perhaps never) photographed in pairs from specific Super Bowls. So please excuse my effort to keep these photos from being misused and misrepresented. 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 first winning Super Bowl Ring from their 1976 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 using the tools on the right for 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 one large diamond and 24 smaller diamonds. The ring weighs approximately 46 grams.

Like so many other winning Super Bowl rings, the Oakland Raiders Super Bowl XI ring is extremely rare and in high demand by Raider fans and highly coveted by championship ring collectors. Very few of these rings have made it to the collecting community and the few that have, have sold for a lot of money.

In a tradition that continues to this day, the team that loses the Super Bowl is still recognized as a champion of their respective conference. I only know of one Minnesota Vikings 1976 championship ring that has hit the market place and unfortunately, the manufacturer and the weight of the ring was not provided. Boy, talk about a rare ring!

Please know that I buy super bowl rings and buy championship rings too, so do let me know if you have a championship ring you would like to sell.

The Championship Rings From Super Bowl II

December 20, 2014


Continuing the new blog series on the pair of rings issued from every Super Bowl, let’s take a look at the championship rings from Super Bowl II:

super bowl rings and championship rings


As already mentioned in the first blog, championship rings awarded by teams of the National Football League and American Football League started way before Super Bowl I.

I’m not sure when I will finish this series; because news stories about championship rings emerge frequently, and great pictures show up on Twitter all the time. And who knows what else will temporarily interrupt this theme, probably several times a week, but I promise, we will get to all 48 Super Bowl Championship rings sooner or later.

I need to apologize that this photograph contains my website address, but if I don’t do this, other web sites will steal my photos or worse, ebay sellers making cheap replicas that don’t look as realistic as the real rings will use the photos and claim these are their championship rings.

Almost all of these photographs are from my private championship ring collection and many of these rings are extremely rare and seldom (or perhaps never) photographed in pairs from a particular super bowl game. So please excuse my effort to keep the photos from being misused. When I use a common picture, I don’t put my website address on the photo.

The ring on the left is the Green Bay Packers Super Bowl II ring. Made by Jostens, it contained three large diamonds. Vince Lombardi and the team felt this was not their second NFL-AFL title championship, they felt it was their third world championship (the name Super Bowl would come in a few years).

The Super Bowl II ring is rare and highly coveted by championship ring collectors. Very few of these rings have been sold to the public.

The ring shown on the right is the Oakland Raiders 1967 AFL Championship ring. In a tradition that continues today, the team that loses the Super Bowl is still recognized as a champion of their respective conference. What’s amazing about the Oakland Raiders ring is that it’s style of white gold, a black Onyx stone, and white diamonds (representing their silver and black team colors) has changed very little in the five decades that the team has been earning championship rings.

Before the official merger in the late 1960s was completed, the losing ring would contain either “AFL” or “NFL” champions, while the winning super bowl team’s ring would have the words “World Champions”. Starting with Super Bowl V and continuing to modern times, the team that loses the Super Bowl earns an “AFC” or “NFC” champions ring.

The Oakland Raiders 1967 AFL Championship Ring was made by a company, named John Roberts. John Roberts made very few championship rings. This championship ring is extremely rare too, and very few have ever been sold. Because they are not as sought-after as the Packers ring, they would sell for substantially less than the Packers Super Bowl II ring.

Remember that I buy super bowl rings and I buy championship rings. Please contact me if you have a championship ring you would like to sell.
