Packers Super Bowl I championship ring sold at auction
Hall of Fame manager Earl Weaver, who had a colorful career with the Baltimore Orioles, is selling many prized pieces from his personal collection this weekend at auction.
Weaver is parting ways with championship rings and more. He’s not alone.
As Jeff Ash of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports, Steve Wright sold his Super Bowl I Green Bay Packers championship ring earlier this week. Wright’s ring fetched $73,409, more than any other football item in the auction.
Per the report, the ring is believed to be the first authentic one from Super Bowl I to be auctioned. Jerry Kramer solid a replica after recovering his original that had been stolen in 1981. Championship rings are some of the most sought-after collectibles there are.
