The Championship Rings From Super Bowl XIX

April 28, 2015


Continuing the hit blog series on the pair of championship rings from every single Super Bowl, here’s the next exceptional pair: an in-depth look at the two championship rings from Super Bowl XIX.

Super Bowl XIX rings


I need to sincerely apologize that the championship ring picture contains my web-site address. The thinking behind this is that If I didn’t include it in the picture, other web sites would “borrow” my photos, especially those eBay sellers who come-and-go all the time and make the inexpensive replicas in China. (Why does Jostens and Tiffany allow this???) The fakes and replicas don’t look anywhere as realistic as authentic championship rings. These “sellers” show pictures of authentic championship rings and then have the nerve to claim that the pictures are of their replica championship rings!

Almost every picture I post in this blog superbowl ring series is photographed from my personal championship ring collection. These rings are extremely rare and very few land in the hobby-place. That means they are seldom (or perhaps never) photographed in pairs from the specific Super Bowl games. Please forgive my attempt to keep these photos from being misused. When I do post images that are found on the internet, I won’t place my web-site address in the image.

The ring on the left is the San Francisco Forty Niners winning Super Bowl Ring from their 1984 season. This ring contains some major bling – two very large marquise diamonds (football shaped) make up each Lombardi trophy and adorn the top of the ring. The two Lombardi trophies are surrounded by many smaller diamonds.

The 49ers Super Bowl XIX ring show above, was designed and manufactured by Jostens in 10K solid yellow gold. The ring weighs in at approximately 44 grams.

Like so many other winning Super Bowl rings, the Forty Niners Super Bowl XIX ring is extremely rare and in high demand by 49er fans and highly coveted by championship ring collectors. I only know of one player championship ring that has sold at auction – going for $34,190.00. I know of a couple that 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 Miami Dolphin AFC championship ring shown above weighed in at 43 grams and contains five small diamonds – representing the team’s five super bowl appearances.

I’m not sure why the Dolphins used the gold metal background on top of the ring, opting not to do their usual team-colored aqua onyx stone.

Also of interest is that the Dolphins 1984 AFC championship ring started the run of 13 consecutive years where NFC teams won the super bowl. This means that this blog will be showcasing 13 consecutive NFC Super Bowl champion rings and 13 consecutive AFC championship rings.

Two player 1984 AFC championship rings have sold at auction for $8,962 and $7,812.

The Dolphins rings were designed and produced by Jostens in 10K yellow gold.

Please know that I buy super bowl rings and buy championship rings too, so reach out and contact me if you have a championship ring you want to sell.

The Championship Rings From Super Bowl XVI

April 4, 2015


Continuing my long blog series on the two championship rings from every Super Bowl, here’s the next gorgeous pair – an inside look at the two championship rings from Super Bowl XVI.

super bowl XVI rings


As I’ve written again and again, I hope you can accept my apologies that the above championship ring picture shows my web url. If I didn’t place it in the picture, other notorious web sites would lift my photos, especially those eBay sellers who pop up all the time and make the incredibly cheap replicas in China. These replicas don’t look as realistic as authentic championship rings. These fly-by-nights, love to show photos of real championship rings and claim the pictures are of their replica championship rings!

Almost every picture I use on this blog series are from my personal championship ring collection. As you know, these rings are incredibly rare in the hobby place and are seldom (or perhaps never) photographed in pairs from the specific Super Bowls. So once again, please excuse my desire to keep these photos from being misused. When I do show a picture found on the internet, I promise, I won’t place my annoying website url on the picture.

The ring on the left is the San Francisco 49ers first winning Super Bowl Ring from their 1981 season. No team had more super bowl victories than the 49ers in the 1980s (4 titles) so get ready to see a lot of Forty Niner Super Bowl rings in the upcoming blog series.

The 49ers Super Bowl XVI ring show above, was designed and manufactured by Balfour in 10K solid yellow gold. The ring contains one large diamond and 16 smaller diamonds. The championship ring weighs in at approximately 46 grams.

Like so many other winning Super Bowl rings, the Forty Niners Super Bowl XVI ring is extremely rare and in high demand by 49er fans and highly coveted by championship ring collectors. Only four player ring has been sold publicly, a couple of other front office rings have sold too.

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 Cincinnati Bengals AFC championship ring shown above lacked the bling that was becoming more prevalent with championship rings, however, no one could argue the ring isn’t a beautiful and elegant design.

I don’t know of any Bengal 1981 championship rings that have sold publicly, however there have been at least two sold privately. If brought to auction, the ring would probably sell in the $5,000 – $6,000 range (a lot more money if it belonged to a well known and/or outstanding player).

The Bengals 1981 AFC ring was designed and produced by Jostens in 10K yellow gold and weighs 30 grams.

As always, please don’t forget, I buy super bowl rings and buy championship rings too, so definitely let me know if you have a championship ring you want to sell.

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.

San Francisco 49ers To Raffle An Authentic 2012 NFC Championship Ring


Here’s you chance to win authentic ring, just like Colin Kaepernick’s.

San Francisco 49ers Authentic NFC 2012 Championship Ring

An extremly lucky San Francisco 49ers fan will win the exact same NFC championship ring awarded to players from last year’s Super Bowl losing team.

The 49ers announced this week that they will hold a NFC championship ring raffle to benefit the 49ers Foundation Charity. Fans can buy five tickets for $10 to get a chance to win an authentic Tiffany and Co. ring that will come with the winner’s name and all the same features as the ones Colin Kaepernick and Aldon Smith were awarded.

The winner will be announced Oct. 1 and given the ring at a ceremony before an Oct. 13 home game against the Arizona Cardinals. Even better, the team will provide a cash prize to mitigate the winner’s tax liability resulting from winning the raffle and complete travel accommodations will be provided as well.

With the money going to charity, it’s a win-win situation for everyone.
