    1974 Pittsburgh Steelers Super Bowl IX Championship Ring Presented to Safety Jimmy Allen.
    The Steelers' fourth-round selection in the 1974 NFL Draft played four seasons in Pittsburgh, enjoying two trips to the sport's biggest game. Today Allen is best remembered as the lead singer of the Detroit Lions 1980 recording of "Another One Bites the Dust."

    Presented is the sport's most coveted symbol of achievement, the Super Bowl ring issued to Allen for his contributions in bringing joy to the fertile football grounds of western Pennsylvania during his rookie campaign. A large genuine diamond is set into a black stone on the ring's face, encircled by text trumpeting, "1974 Pittsburgh Steelers World Champions." Left shank is engraved with the team's helmet logo and "Allen 45," while right shank pictures the fabled Lombardi Trophy with "Super Bowl IX" text as well as the results of the three playoff victories that narrowed the NFL field to one.

    There are no markings inside the ring, but it tests at fourteen karat gold (14K), weighing thirty-eight grams (38 g.) and measuring to a size eleven (11). Moderate wear evident.
