Westhampton, N.Y-based Grey Flannel Auctions will offer a Super Bowl I player’s ring belonging to former Green Bay Packer Steve Wright.
“To our knowledge, the May sale will mark the first time an authentic player’s ring from Super Bowl I has ever come to auction,” said Grey Flannel Auctions president Richard E. Russek.
According to Grey Flannel, the ring to be auctioned in May comes directly from Wright and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from him. It will be offered at auction with a $10,000 reserve.
Under the guidance of legendary coach Vince Lombardi, the Packers defeated the Kansas City Chiefs on Jan. 15, 1967 to take home the first Super Bowl trophy. Wright played offensive tackle for the Packers in that landmark game.
