Less than a year removed from the Baltimore Ravens Super Bowl XLVII win over the San Francisco 49ers, one of the Championship rings is going up for sale. With a ring going up this quickly you’d think it’d have to be a staff member’s. While unfortunately players sometimes sell their rings, less than a year removed from winning one seems extreme.
This one does indeed belong to a player though, Ravens running back Damien Berry. He never played a down for the Ravens in the 2012 season spending it entirely on injured reserve. He was an undrafted free agent who spent the 2011 season on the practice squad and was cut in August of 2013 so there might not be the sentimental attachment.
“This is a rare opportunity for a fan or a collector to own a Super Bowl ring less than a year after it was earned and one from a landmark NFL game,” said Founder of Goldin Auctions Ken Goldin, via the Ravens website. “NFL Championship rings and Super Bowl player rings are coveted by collectors because it is rare for them to become available. That is why we are so excited to offer these unique finds in our 2014 Winter Auction.”
The ring is 3.75 carats, featuring 243 round cut diamonds
