The first New England Patriots Super Bowl ring to be offered at public sale brought some bling to a Lelands auction.
A Super Bowl XXXVI ring commemorating the New England Patriots’ win over the St. Louis Rams has sold at auction for $37,511. The listing was part of an internet auction conducted by an east coast auction firm and generated 13 bids.
The 14-karat white gold diamond ring made by Jostens came with the original presentation box. It belonged to a member of the club’s front office staff.
To date, no other Patriots’ Super Bowl rings are believed to have been sold in the marketplace.
The auction also included the sale of a group of over 25,000 photographer’s slides from the archives of the now-defunct Pacific Trading Cards. The group sold for $2988 including the buyer’s premium. Another group of 2300 professional photographer’s slides from various sports which included numerous Hall of Famers, realized $5385.
