LT auctioning off his Super Bowl ring
Speaking of Super Bowl rings ...
Lawrence Taylor is auctioning off his Super Bowl XXV ring this spring, according to a release from SCPAuctions.com. So far the ring has received 12 bids with the current bid at $37,982 but the estimated value of the ring is between $75,000 and $100,000 according to the release. The austion ends on Saturday and you can bid online.
Here's how the release describes the item:
"Arguably the most significant Super Bowl player ring ever offered publicly, it features two football shaped diamonds on the face surrounded by worn blue enameling framed by seventeen smaller diamonds. Design elements include the name “TAYLOR” on the left shank above a Giants helmet and his number “56”. Engraved on the interior band in the full name “LAWRENCE TAYLOR”. The ring shows considerable wear, that in some eyes, only enhances its aura. The ring includes a notarized letter of authenticity from Taylor."
Here's the full lot description ... in case you're in the market.
