Have you always wanted a Super Bowl ring of your own, but without the hassle of actually getting on an NFL roster? Well, you're in luck. Just a day after the Giants received their most recent Super Bowl rings, Lawrence Taylor's auctioning off his Super Bowl XXV ring and is apparently seeking between $75,000 and $100,000 for the diamond-studded piece of jewelry.
You can bid on the ring right here (or, like me, just stare at the diamonds), but you're gonna need some cash -- the current bid for the ring is $37,982. Of course, if the ring is, as the auction description claims, "arguably the most significant" Super Bowl ring ever, then it's totally worth it. Even with the "considerable wear."
"Presented here is arguably the most significant Superbowl player ring ever offered publicly. Lawrence Taylor’s own 1991 Superbowl XXV ring feature two football shaped diamonds on the face surrounded by worn blue enameling framed by seventeen smaller diamonds. Design elements include the name 'TAYLOR' on the left shank above a Giants helmet and his number '56.' Engraved on the interior band in the full name 'LAWRENCE TAYLOR,'" the auction description reads. "The ring shows considerable wear, that in some eyes, only enhances it aura. A phenomenally important memento from one of the greatest football players of all-time. Size: 12."
So significant is this ring, in fact, that the reserve hasn't been met yet: according to a press release, Taylor is seeking between $75,000 and $100,000 for the ring. That seems like a tough number to pull off, but if they're at nearly 40 grand with two days to go, it'll probably happen.
For the record, if I was filthy rich, I would absolutely buy this ring. And then I'd use it as the trophy for my fantasy football league moving forward.
