Scott Norwood AFC Championship Rings to Hit Auction

February 10, 2015


Buffalo Bills fans and championship ring collectors can now own Scott Norwood’s actual Bills championship rings.

Buffalo Bills Scott Norwood AFC Championsip ring


SCP Auctions will be auctioning Scott Norwood’s 1990 and 1991 AFC championship rings that were awarded to him when he was the Bills kicker.

Had it not been for Norwood’s 47-yard field goal attempt, (his longest attempt on a grass), that sailed wide right, the Bills would have defeated the New York Giants in Super Bowl XXV.

Things only got worse the Buffalo Bills as they proceeded to lose the next three Super Bowls as well in the franchise’s only four super bowl appearances.

The 1990 AFC championship ring is expected to sell for much more money, said Dan Imler, SCP Auctions vice president, because had Norwood not missed the kick in the Super Bowl, the Bills would have owned winning Super Bowl rings. Imler said the company’s conservative estimate for the 1990 ring is $15,000.

Imler said the rings are not coming directly from Norwood, but it is the first time they are publicly for sale or auction.

“I think this would mean more to a Bills fan,” Imler said. “But the Buckner ball originally went to Charlie Sheen [a Mets fan], and the Bartman ball went to Cubs fans who blew it up.”

Norwood, who retired after the 1991 season, finally returned twenty years later, in 2011, to Ralph Wilson Stadium to be honored by the Bills. Norwood received a Distinguished Service Award for his work in the local community.

Please remember I buy championship rings and I buy super bowl rings. If you would like to sell your championship ring, please let me know.

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.

Roland Williams And His Championship Rings

September 12, 2014


If you ever bump into Roland Williams he will probably be wearing a few championship rings; and he’ll let you try them on:

Roland Williams and his Super Bowl and AFC Championship Rings


Roland Williams may be a retired NFL tight end, but he is keeping busy and doing great things.

Born in upstate New York in 1975, he played for Syracuse before joining the NFL. He played in the NFL for 8 seasons and enjoyed great success on the field and off.

Roland was selected in the 1998 NFL Draft by the St. Louis Rams. He was a multi-year starter, and was there when the team won XXXIV in the thrilling Rams victory over the Tennessee Titans. You can see his Jostens Super Bowl ring in the picture above.

Following that Super Bowl victory, Roland played three seasons with the Oakland Raiders. The Raiders won the American Football Conference Championship and was awarded the black ring you see in the picture.

In 2003, Roland played one season with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He then returned to play another season with the Oakland Raiders and then the subsequent season with the St. Louis Rams before a career ending knee injury sidelined him in 2006.

Roland was known throughout his career as a premier blocking tight end in the NFL, it’s Roland’s personality that has labeled him as one of the most positive and energetic athletes in all of professional sports.

In 1999, Roland founded Youth Lifeline America. It’s a charity that partners with athletes, entertainers and executives to harness the powerful influence of sports and entertainment to provide free educational training to at-risk youth across the nation.

With all the problems we hear about with the NFL and it’s player’s, it’s refreshing to know that Roland has received many awards for his charitable efforts including the prestigious NFL Unsung Hero Award, 2-time Oakland Raiders Man of the Year Award, the Press Radio Club Pro Athlete of the Year Award and he was a multi-year finalist for the Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year Award.

In July 2014, Williams started raising funds for a new program that would help support 500 boys in his hometown of Rochester, New York.

Since retiring from football, Roland has become a sports analyst and has appeared on media outlets including CBS Sports Network, ESPN, MTV, NBC, NBC Sports Network, Nickelodeon, NFL Network, CNBC, Fox, Fox Sports Net, CBS, ABC and many other television, radio, online and print publications.
