A Beautiful Girl and Her Five Super Bowl Rings

November 13, 2014


Recently this photo was seen on twitter, a lucky gal showing off the five San Francisco 49er Super Bowl rings.

5 San Francisco 49er Super Bowl rings


How would you like to wrap your hands around those babies? Sorry, I’m a married man, so obviously I am talking about the five super bowl rings.

Looks like your typical corporate trade-show, and with some boxes seen in the background, perhaps it was time to set up the booth (the tag around her neck lead to my assumptions).

These championship rings probably belong to Dwight Clark (another assumption on my part). Dwight makes the rounds at a lot of corporate events and is famous for allowing fans and championship ring admirers the opportunity to try on his five super bowl rings! Besides, he is one of the very few people who have been awarded five San Francisco Forty Niners Super Bowl rings.

For more information on Dwight Clark and some close ups of his five championship rings, use the search button on the right to bring up previous blogs about him and his Super Bowl rings.

You can also visit the Super Bowl ring gallery, a link can be found from the home page of this site.

Please remember, I’m always buying championship rings and I especially love to buy Super Bowl rings (winning and losing rings). Please remember I don’t sell championship rings and I don’t trade championship rings.

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.

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.

Two Gorgeous Football Championship Rings Spotted In One Presentation Box

November 8, 2014


Two team doctors, and long time friends from different football leagues, recently caught up with each other and took this great picture of their championship rings:


(Click picture below for a larger picture)

NFL and CFL Championship Rings


Championship ring collectors who don’t live in Canada, know that the Canadian Football League produces some amazing Grey Cup Championship rings. Those championship rings rival NFL Super Bowl rings in size, style, and bling.

So when this photograph of player-size championship rings appeared recently on Twitter, I couldn’t resist to write about it.

The BC Lion ring from 2011 and the Seahawks ring from Super Bowl XLVIII look great together. Equal in size, diamonds and bling, I’m not sure which one is nicer. Football fans hate ties in football, but perhaps this is one tie we can all live with.

Congratulations to both team doctors, it’s great that they received player-sized championship rings!

If anyone reading this blog has a BC Lions championship ring for sale, I will buy that championship ring (and in fact, I will buy any championship ring).
