Super Bowl Ring Twitter Mishaps

December 6, 2014


While this doesn’t qualify as a photo bomb or super bowl ring humor, consider this a reminder; If you’re lucky enough to post a picture of you and a championship ring, don’t do this:

Pittsburgh Steeler Super Bowl Rings


In my latest find on Twitter of a fan wearing a championship ring, I see Ryan posing with three winning Pittsburgh Steeler Super Bowl rings. The rings shown from left to right are the Steelers Super Bowl XLIII, XL, and XIV rings.

Some collectors refer to the rings (again from left to right) as Super Bowl rings from the 2008, 2005, and 1979. What makes the roman numeral system so much more accurate in identifying a super bowl ring is that the big game itself is played early in the following year and not during the same year as the actual season (ie, the Steelers played and won Super Bowl XLIII during the 2008 season, although the game was played in February of 2009).

So Ryan did pretty well with the photos; they are basically in focus, the championship rings are correctly placed and not upside down, and he is smiling. Things go wrong when he tries to post his message and tell the Twitter world about his shinning moment.

I hate to nitpick but the tweet would have been a much better post if his words made sense.

Oh well, better luck next time.

I know this championship ring blog has not had much news lately or shown rare photos of championship rings. I promise, I will be starting a series of new stories and brand new photos of super bowl and championship rings very soon.

Thank you for your emails and messages and for reading this blog!

Please spread the word, I am looking to buy championship rings, especially Super Bowl rings. If you or anyone you know is selling a championship ring, please contact me.

Dan Reeves Sure Has A Lot Of Championship Rings

September 29, 2014


Dan has been awarded a total of Nine Championship Rings. Two of them were Super Bowl Championship rings. Here they are in all their glory:


(Click picture below for a larger picture)

Dan Reeves Championship Rings


Dan Reeves played eight seasons with the Dallas Cowboys, and collected 1,990 rushing yards, 1,693 receiving yards and 42 scored touchdowns. Reeves threw a touchdown pass in the Cowboys’ losing effort in the historic Ice Bowl Championship game against the Green Bay Packers.

The Dallas Cowboys made the playoffs every year of Reeves’ playing days, reaching the Super Bowl twice.

In Super Bowl V with the Cowboys and Colts tied at 13 in the last 2 minutes, Dan Reeves let a pass go through his hands and it was intercepted, setting up the Colts in Dallas territory. The Colts would win the game on a 32-yard field goal from Jim O’Brien with 5 seconds left.

In his final game as a player, Reeves and the Cowboys had a 24-3 victory over the Miami Dolphins in Super Bowl VI.

Reeves holds the record of most Super Bowl appearances as a player and or coach with 9.

Here’s a little about each ring:

From the lower left: The first ring is the NFC championship ring from 1970. The ring is around 36 grams and made of 10K solid white gold. The ring was made by Balfour.

The next rings is the 1975 NFC championship ring. The Cowboys went on to lose to the Steelers in Super Bowl X (Reeves was a coach on the team). The ring is also made by Balfour in 10K white solid gold and weighs in at 34 grams.

The third ring (middle, bottom) is the only Super Bowl ring Reeves won as a player. The Super Bowl VI ring was made by balfour in 14K white gold. The ring is 36 grams.

The next ring, (bottom, second from right) was won by Reeves as a coach. The Cowboys Super Bowl XII ring when in was designed and manufactured in early 1978, had the most bling of any championship ring made up to that time. The ring was made by Jostens in 10K white gold and was 43 grams in weight.

The ring on the lower right is his last Cowboys ring, earned as a coach, it’s the 1978 NFC championship ring. Perhaps the least attractive AFC/NFC championship ring every made, it was designed and manufactured by Jostens, in 10K yellow gold and weighed in at 35 ounces.

The three rings shown on the top, from left to right were from Reeves head coaching years with the Denver Broncos. They are the 1986, 1987, and 1989 AFC Championship Rings (earned when a team loses in the Super Bowl). Each of the three Bronco rings were made by Jostens in 10K solid yellow gold and were in the weight range of 40-44 grams each.

The final ring, shown on the upper right was from Reeves final super bowl appearance, as the head coach of the Atlanta Falcons. This beautiful NFC championship ring was from 1998. The ring was made by Jostens in 10K solid yellow gold as is 45 grams in weight.

Championship Ring Humor – Obama and Putin

Sometimes collectors take this stuff to seriously. I know I do. It’s a good idea to have fun and poke some occasional fun at the world of collecting and collectors who make this hobby so interesting.

So I hope you don’t mind if I occasionally interrupt this Championship Ring Blog for some fun. As most of you know, Patriot owner, Robert Kraft recently was in the news regarding his accusation that Putin stole his Super Bowl ring.
