Wisconsin man purchases a Super Bowl XLV championship ring

It certainly did not cost as much as the Super Bowl XXV ring that Lawrence Taylor is hawking in an auction.

But a Green Bay Packers Super Bowl XLV championship ring sold on Wednesday at a pawn shop in Grand Chute, Wis.

No, it did not belong to a star player – or even anyone on the roster. But just the same, 71-year-old Dennis Brucks is now the owner of a Super Bowl XLV ring. Pawn America manager LeRon Wilder would not confirm the selling the price, according to the Green Bay Press-Gazette, citing client confidentiality.

But the ring previously belonged to Sarah Pace, who works in the Packers front office with a role in the Lambeau Field Atrium.

The ring has a lifetime service guarantee through Jostens, according to the report, so Brucks has sent it off to have it re-sized and cleaned. Soon enough, he’ll be wearing it although it will still read “PACE” on the ring.
