    1996 Green Bay Packers Super Bowl XXXI Championship Ring Presented to Running Backs Coach. They dominated the first two editions of the Super Bowl--a continuation of an era of NFL dynasty that had seen the Pack end nine seasons in the league's throne--but three decades had passed since the Lombardi Trophy had returned to its ancestral home. As NFL MVP Brett Favre led the green and gold onto the astroturf of New Orleans' Superdome, the Vegas line was Green Bay by fourteen.

    The prediction proved prophetic, as the fourth quarter concluded with a thirty-five to twenty-one victory over the New England Patriots, supplying gamblers with an unsatisfying push and the Gunslinger with his sole Championship ring.

    We couldn't imagine any scenario in which Favre would part with that elite hardware, but the offered lot will serve as a welcome fall-back plan for the Cheeseheads in our bidding clientele, a ring identical to those earned on the field by Favre and Reggie White but issued to Harry Sydney, who served as the Packers' running back coach from 1995-99 after his own playing career established him as the only man in NFL history to catch touchdown passes from both Joe Montana and Brett Favre. He won two Super Bowls as a 49ers running back as well.

    More than one hundred genuine diamonds weighing 2.35 carats spangle the face of this ring, sporting a logo "G" and the words, "World Champions." Left shank bears bold block lettering announcing, "Packers 1996 Tradition," while right shank features helmet and football imagery beneath the recipient's surname and the team's record inclusive of the postseason. Interior band is stamped "10K" beside a Josten's logo. Weight is fifty-two grams (52 g.). Size is a massive fourteen (14). Fine condition with very minimal signs of wear. LOA from MEARS, Authentic.
