The Million Dollar Championship Ring?
January 12, 2018
Maybe Joe Namath is pointing to his Super Bowl ring and pondering, “this could be the world’s first and only million dollar championship ring”.
As I said earlier than on this weblog, I’ve typically thought and puzzled what’s probably the most worthwhile championship ring of all time?
While championship ring fanatics and sports activities followers might debate this matter till the tip of time, I maintain coming again to Namath’s Super Bowl III ring.
Am I loopy for pondering this championship ring might fetch one million or extra at public sale? Keep in thoughts that Babe Ruth’s 1923 non-working 1923 strong gold World-Series watch bought for $717,000 in 2014. Note that World Series rings weren’t awarded in 1923, solely gold watches.
Babe Ruth’s first Yankees World Series ring, from 1927, could have bought for greater than $717,000 privately. However some within the sports activities memorabilia group have puzzled if that championship ring is authentic, and a few have even puzzled if that ring is genuine. I do not know about it’s authenticity. Bad-boy Charlie . Sheen bought the ring privately, so the worth he paid isn’t publicly identified.
If New York Giant legend, Lawrence Taylor’s beat-up Super Bowl XXV championship ring can promote for $230,401 (in 2012) and the Bear’s William Perry’s (The Fridge) Super Bowl XX ring can fetch $203,150 (in 2015), think about what Joe Namath’s Jets Super Bowl ring would deliver at public sale.
And take into accout Perry’s Super Bowl XX ring additionally had championship ring collectors questioning if that ring began out life as a Jostens salesman pattern and refitted with actual diamonds.
Why is Joe Namath’s Super Bowl III ring (nonetheless owned and worn by Joe as pictured above) a potential $1,000,000 ring? What makes this championship ring so particular is that Joe and the Jets have been big underdogs in Super Bowl III and their victory over the closely favored Colts helped to make the annual Super Bowl contest the most important sporting occasion of the yr. Up till not too long ago, the Super Bowl continued to develop and develop in reputation, and maybe it’ll nonetheless carry on rising.
Please keep in mind as all the time, I purchase championship rings. If you want to promote your championship ring privately, please contact me.
