Five Super Bowl rings and the Atlanta Falcons’ pre-draft scouting report on a young Brett Favre are among more than 200 lots of football memorabilia in Goldin Auctions’ current catalog.
All five of the rings originated with players who were a part of winning teams from 1974-2012.
The scouting report on Favre, who was Southern Mississippi’s starting quarterback, is a hand-written and dated report from area scout Scott Campbell that was integral in the Falcons selecting Favre in round two of the 1991 NFL Draft. After a year with Jerry Glanville’s Falcons, Favre was famously traded to Green Bay. Packers’ General Manager Ron Wolf had coveted Favre when evaluating talent with the New York Jets and under the tutelage of coach Mike Holmgren, Favre became a Pro Football Hall of Famer.
Dozens of game jerseys from NFL greats including Joe Montana, Ben Roethlisberger, Jim Taylor, Steve Young, Reggie White, Drew Brees, Andrew Luck, Barry Sanders and others are also part of the auction.
1974 Pittsburgh Steelers-Charles Davis
1987 Washington Redskins-Mark Rypien
1999 St. Louis Rams – London Fletcher
1987 Denver Broncos-Byron Chamberlain
2012 Baltimore Ravens-LaQuan Williams
Two previous 2012 Ravens player rings each sold for more than $40,000.
Rypien’s ring comes with his LOA and is just the second player ring from that team to be offered at auction, as is the case with Davis’ ’74 Steelers ring. The ’97 Broncos ring is the first from that team to come to auction.
The autographed Montana jersey dates from his 1990 MVP season and has been authenticated by MEARS.
Roethlisberger’s jersey was worn in an October 2014 game vs. Cleveland.
Taylor is best known for his Hall of Fame career with the Packers but spent his final season with the expansion Saints in 1967.
The Young jersey dates to an October 1993 game against the Vikings while two Eli Manning shirts up for bid date to the 2005 and 2008 seasons.
If you’re looking for something completely different, Goldin is offering Tom Brady’s t-shirt and boxer shorts won in the movie Ted 2, complete with production tags and photos of Brady wearing them.
