Washington Redskins Scabs Finally Will Get 1987 Super Bowl Rings
March 7, 2018
Thanks to public strain and the ESPN Documentary on the topic, the substitute gamers for the 1987 Washington Redskins will lastly obtain Super Bowl rings.
It’s been a bit of greater than 30 years after they propelled the Redskins to a Three-Zero file in the course of the common season whereas the workforce’s “real” gamers have been on strike.
Most of the substitute gamers, A.Okay.A. scabs – have been rapidly minimize after the strike ended, whereas a choose few have been stored on the roster. Those not on the roster have been by no means awarded Super Bowl rings after the skins demolished the Broncos 42-10 in Super Bowl XXII.
On Tuesday, Tony Robinson and fellow substitute participant Anthony Sagnella have been on the Virginia General Assembly the place a decision was handed to honor the Washington substitute gamers for his or her contributions in the course of the 1987 season.
The ESPN documentary laid out the case that with out the substitute participant’s assist, it was possible the Redskins wouldn’t win a Super Bowl later that yr, for the reason that Three-Zero begin helped the workforce earn residence subject benefit by way of the playoffs.
After the decision, at a reception in Richmond, Redskins workforce president Bruce Allen introduced that the substitute gamers would obtain Super Bowl rings later this yr.
If you haven’t watched the ESPN documentary, I strongly recommend you do, it was fairly shifting.
You can see the brand new Super Bowl rings within the picture above. For causes unknown, the Redskins are having Barons, a small championship ring firm, make the brand new Super Bowl rings. Tiffany had made the unique Super Bowl rings (proven beneath).
Barons is finest identified for making the Cavaliers final championship ring and it appears to me, that they are going to drastically enhance the highest of the Redskins Super Bowl ring. When Tiffany produced the unique Super Bowl ring, the 2 Lombardi trophies have been made with small diamonds and was not well-defined. The two trophies seemed clumsy to me.
Compare the 2 variations and you will note the brand new Super Bowl rings will look nicer.
Congratulations to the substitute gamers for lastly getting what they deserved – their very personal Super Bowl rings.
Please keep in mind as at all times, I purchase championship rings. If you wish to promote your championship ring in full privateness, please contact me.
