If you're an NFL fan who's ever dreamt of owning a Super Bowl ring, now you can. All you'll need is a lot of money. A former employee of the Dallas Cowboys is putting his Super Bowl VI ring up for auction. The ring is a prized one in Dallas because it marks the team's first Super Bowl win -- January 1972 when the Cowboys beat the Dolphins 24-3 to cap an 11-3 season.
Former Cowboys public relations director Curt Mosher is putting the ring up for auction because he can't wear it anymore due to arthritis and other health conditions, according to the Dallas Morning News. "It's hard to part with it," Mosher said. "It's a gorgeous thing."
Mosher was personally hired by then-Cowboys general manager Tex Schramm as the team's "first" public relations director in 1967. First is in quotes because Schramm considered himself the team's first chief public relations executive; Mosher was the first outsider to hold the position. "I loved Tex Schramm," Mosher said of the deceased former Cowboys GM. Schramm is the answer to the Cowboys' trivia question: Who was the last Dallas general manager before Jerry Jones?

The ring will hit the auction block on Feb. 23 with Heritage Auctions, which expects the bidding to open at around $10,000. Heritage also says the ring is believed to be the first Super Bowl VI ring to come up at a public auction.
Mosher doesn't have a say in who's going to get the ring, but he can hope. "I'd like to see it in the hands of someone who loves it as much as I do," the 80-year-old said.
