Legendary punter Ray Guy’s Super Bowl XI, XV and XVIII rings are being sold at auction. According to Nate D Sanders Auctions, Guy recently filed for bankruptcy and was ordered by a judge to sell the rings to raise money to pay off his debts. Bidding is underway now and they will be sold next Tuesday to the high bidder.
All three rings are being offered in one lot.
Guy played for the Oakland/Los Angeles Raiders from 1973-1986. A seven-time Pro Bowler, he was an essential part of the Raiders dynasty that won three Super Bowls. In 1994, he was named to the NFL’s 75th anniversary team. In 2000, the Greater Augusta Sports Council began annually awarding the Ray Guy Award to the outstanding collegiate punter.
In 1981, Guy was awarded his second NFL championship ring featuring 35 diamonds after the Raiders defeated the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl XV.
Guy’s Super Bowl XVIII ring was issued in commemoration of the Los Angeles Raiders’ 38-9 victory over the Washington Redskins and displays 23 diamond-encrusted stones that are shaped into three footballs.
The Super Bowl rings had a current high bid of $6,727 as of Monday night but are expected to sell for between $75,000 and $90,000.
Sanders says the rings come with a letter of authenticity from Guy.
