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.

Pawn Shop Says Selling Three Super Bowl Rings Won’t Be Simple For Thieves

November 12, 2014

The three stolen Super Bowl rings, belonging to Houston Texans linebacker coach Mike Vrabel – which looks just like these in the photo, were stolen from his Houston residence recently.

selling super bowl ring

Mike Vrabel reported that his home was burglarized and the robber or robbers got away with the three Super Bowl rings he was awarded while playing for the New England Patriots’ during the championship seasons 2001-02, 2003-04 and 2004-05.

No arrests have been made in the case. The theft and some other robberies in the area during the same time period, are under investigation.

Vrabel, tweeted on Saturday: “To all the Houston area pawn shops: 3 super bowl rings are headed your way. Courtesy of the (expletive) who smashed our back door in.”

“You work so dang hard for something like that, especially three of them. It’s terribly sad, and I sure hope he gets those back,” said J.J. Watt, one of Vrabel’s players.

Now how in the world can the thieves think they can unload the championship rings at a pawn shop or other market?

If they call me, looking to sell the ring, (and running this blog I get calls all the time to buy and sell championship rings) I would let the authorities know immediately!

Alex Rodriguez, (yes, this is his name, and unlike his name-sake, this guy is a law abiding citizen) is a 30-year pawn broker. He says the thieves have a very difficult road ahead of them if they believe they can unload three super bowl rings at any reputable, licensed pawn shop in the state of Texas (or anywhere else in the country).

“If a piece of jewelry has anyone’s initials or name engraved on it and those letters don’t match the driver’s license information we won’t take it,” says Rodriguez. The thieves also would be ill-advised to think it could be melted down or scrapped and retaining the rings’ original value. Some estimates put the rings worth up to $50,000 apiece. The best the thieves could expect would be scrap prices, and that’s if they find someone underhanded enough to do the work.

“It’s totally possible to own a Super Bowl ring and pawn it,” says Rodriguez. If a player fell on tough times he could pawn his Super Bowl ring but he would have to produce proper documentation.

Some smart thieves know better than to take stolen items to pawn shops, but it’s likely that these super bowl rings, and Yogi Berra’s world series rings will turn up sooner rather than later.

Please remember, I will buy championship rings, especially Super Bowl rings. I don’t buy stolen merchandise and I don’t sell championship rings.

Patriots Player, Mike Vrabel Robbed of His Three Super Bowl Rings

November 10, 2014

Somewhere, someone has Mike Vrabel’s three Superbowl rings. If you have any information on the whereabouts, please contact your local law enforcement.

Patriots Super Bowl Rings Stolen

Vrabel, now a linebackers coach for the Texans, exemplified the versatility sought by the New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick.

Besides his impressive play as a linebacker, Vrabel occasionally played as an eligible receiver on offense.

Belichick took advantage of this in Super Bowl XXXVIII, when in the fourth quarter of the tight game, Tom Brady threw a touchdown pass to Vrabel. This made Vrabel the first defensive player to score a Super Bowl touchdown on offense since Super Bowl XX when William “Refrigerator” Perry did so for the Bears.

Vrabel was one of the defensive stars in that super bowl game as well; having two sacks (one forcing a fumble) of Carolina Panthers quarterback Jake Delhomme.

A few days ago, while Vrabel and his wife were out watching their kids play basketball, someone broke into their home and stole his superbowl rings.

If anyone is wondering, while I buy championship rings all the time, I, and almost all collectors won’t buy any lost or stolen championship rings.

Hopefully the scum that stole these championship rings will slip-up and get caught trying to sell these super bowl rings.

Patriots Honor Three-Time Super Bowl Champions

November 3, 2014

Pictured below: The New England Patriots Stunning and Gorgeous Three Super Bowl Championship Rings.

(Click picture below for a larger picture)

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
