Consigned directly by the family of the Hall of Fame coach1989 San Francisco 49ers Super Bowl XXIV NFL Championship Ring Presented to Bill Walsh. Those hoping for a competitive contest may have been disappointed in this edition of the biggest game in American sports, but for 49ers fans looking to stamp a bold exclamation point on the team's dominance of the 1980's, they couldn't have asked for more. The New Orleans Superdome played host to the most one-sided contest in the forty-seven (as of the time of this writing) year history of the game, with Hall of Fame legends Joe Montana and Jerry Rice hooking up for a record three touchdown receptions to lead the way to a fifty-five to ten obliteration of John Elway's Denver Broncos.
Though coach Bill Walsh had decided to go out on top following the previous season's Super Bowl victory over the Cincinnati Bengals, the team properly honored the Hall of Fame coach for his essential contributions to building one of the greatest NFL dynasties in the League's history. This ring symbolizes that acknowledgement.
Genuine diamonds stud the ring's face, with four larger football-shaped stones representing the four Lombardi Trophies earned in the 1980's. Raised text at the edges record those four glorious seasons along with the words "Forty Niners." Left shank finds four Lombardi Trophies in miniature framed between "Walsh" and "San Francisco 17-2." Right shank features the logo of Super Bowl XXIV with the text "88 Back to Back 89" and the game's lopsided score.
Interior band is stamped "10K Jostens" and measures to a size twelve. Fine condition. Letter of provenance from the Walsh family.
