  • Giants Super Bowl XLII ring from Tiffany's on sale for $47,995 at Championship-Rings.net

    But
    this particular ring -- dubbed a "10-table ring" by Michael Strahan
    because he wanted people to be able to see it from ten tables away -- is one of
    the many victims of the slumping economy, Robbins points out, with no takers
    after being on the market for nearly three months. Normally, because of the
    rabid New York fan base, rings "don't have a tendency to last very long," he
    says.

    In 2008, when the ring was presented to the Giants, Tiffany &
    Co. said that it had a value of over $25,000. The face of the ring features
    three Super Bowl trophies, one for each of the team's championships. One side
    has the score of the game (Giants 17, Patriots 14) and the other says "Eleven
    Straight on the Road," a nod to the NFL record set by the Giants in 2007.
    Strahan, Eli Manning, Amani
    Toomer
    and Shaun O'Hara made up a
    four-player group who consulted on the design.

    Who did the ring
    originally belong to, you ask? Robbins won't disclose that sort of info
    publicly, saying only that the player was not a starter in the Super Bowl.
    "They’re all champions in my consideration," he says.

      Jeremy Shockey is such a punk. I think that ring gave him nightmares because he saw the giants get so much better when he wasn't playing. Then he saw Boss made that great play in the SB.

            Could have easily been a trainers ring. Aren't player rings engraved with their name or number? Would seem odd if they aren't.

                Yep, I just read the actual article, they're different. Also says in 2008 8 players, a majority of them still on the roster at the time, sold their rings.

                "For whatever reason, back in 2008, we received eight players selling their rings within six months after they received them," Tim Robbins of Championship-Rings.net said of the Super Bowl XLII champion Giants. "The majority of them were still playing for the team, which is rather unusual."
                That makes no damn sense to me. Even practice squad players are making 300k+ a year, why the hell would you need to sell it? Crazy...

                    I remember reading somewhere (probably during the Saints' Superbowl run) that Shockey gave his ring to his mother, so it probably wasn't him.

                      If we can get 365 of us to pony up $131 we can each have it for one day out of the year and pass it around like the Stanley Cup.

                      Seems like a bargain.

                        Don't think about superstars. I think the average career in the NFL is 2-3 years and then you're out of the sport unless you want to play in the Arena League or CFL.

                        Think of a guy like Jay Alford who never got a payday and is probably out of football and now has to fall back on another way of making a living. If you had a ring you could get $25-50k for, would you sell it?

                        Hell even a superstar like Tiki burned through his money with bad investments, divorce(s), etc. Strahan lost half his money in his divorce. How much money do you think LT has left?

                          Michael Johnson I bet sold one. He's out of the NFL now. Jay Alford as well.

                              Yes and no.

                              The exceptions are the guys who are smart and realize even the best football career is short and you have to prepare for life after football. And as a result take their education seriously while playing ball in high school and college.

                              For example, Bart Oates became a lawyer when his career was done. I think Dave Brown is also a lawyer (and he went to Duke, famous for scholar athletes). Guys who went to a school like Duke have a good shot at a 2nd career. Guys who went to schools like UNLV, not so much.

                              Let's admit it, talented athletes get pushed through school and the water gets parted for them, and teachers often look the other way to make sure they play. So if you make it all the way to the pros and then all of a sudden it's over, and you never really cared about your education along the way, well then what?

                              I'll have to go to Shaq -- if he didn't have the stellar career, he's very delusional and thinks he could be a brain surgeon, a police officer, an astronaut... He lucked out and became a great player, a media star, and now a broadcaster. If his career sucked, he'd probably be flipping burgers.

                              Most players probably fall in the middle -- not complete morons and have a chance at some B.S. (bullsh*t not Bachelor of Science) degree, but probably not going pre-med, law school, or engineering.
