Description:
2010 Green Bay Packers Super Bowl XLV Championship Player's Ring. This simply dazzling symbol of professional football's greatest achievement is the very first of its kind to reach the hobby's auction block since quarterback Aaron Rodgers posted an MVP performance in a thirty-one to twenty-five victory over a veteran Pittsburgh Steelers squad in Arlington, Texas to win Super Bowl XLV. The hefty jewel-encrusted platinum prize is far more than just a pretty face, however, each gemstone telling a story that dates back to the founding of the franchise by Curly Lambeau almost a century ago.

The ring's square crest is highlighted by the team "G" logo, incorporating the green and gold colors first introduced in 1935. In each corner is a marquis-cut diamond in appropriate football shape, representing the franchise's four Super Bowl victories (I, II, XXXI and XLV). The "G" shape is comprised of thirteen diamonds, one for each NFL title dating back to the first in 1929, with the ninety-two small diamonds blanketing the outskirts and continuing along each edge counting the years since the 1919 founding of American football's most decorated team. "World Champions" stands in raised lettering amidst the sea of shimmering gemstones.

The left shank reports the name and jersey number of recipient and consignor Jay Ross, whose letter of provenance will attend. A miniature Lambeau Field completes the design. Right shank simply announces "Packers" above the Super Bowl victor's trophy named for the team's iconic leader from 1959 through 1967. Interior band is stamped "Jostens [copyright] Plat" and engraved with the words "1 Mind/Goal/Purpose/Heart" and the results of each playoff game en route to glory. Included is the original hinged cherry wood display box with engraved glass window announcing "2010 World Champions, Jay Ross."

Certainly the most physically impressive specimen we've ever encountered from the World Championship treasure chest of the four major sports, the ring tips the scales at a thunderous four ounces--a quarter of a pound! But the Green Bay Packers have every right to go a bit overboard. As the last surviving relic of the "leatherheads" age when sleepy little towns like Dayton, Duluth and Pottsville represented the beating heart of the professional gridiron, the Green Bay Packers have maintained an underdog charm even in the light of their many successes. There is not a team in professional sports more revered by the populace of its home city, and we expect those folks will be out in force when this ring gets its turn on the Platinum Night auction block. Size fifteen. Letter of Provenance from Jay Ross.
