    1970 Dallas Cowboys NFC Championship Ring Presented to Ralph Neely. Despite dealing with obstacles such as a key injury to fullback Calvin Hill, the benching of Bob Hayes for poor game performances, and a quarterback controversy between Craig Morton and Roger Staubach, the 1970 Dallas Cowboys still managed to make it to their first Super Bowl in franchise history. Even though they experienced a tough loss at the hands of the Baltimore Colts in Super Bowl V, America's Team still solidified its place among the NFL's elite, and it will forever be remembered as one of the most significant seasons in Cowboys history.

    Offered here is Ralph Neely's ring that he received for his contributions to the 1970 NFC Champion Dallas Cowboys squad, and it has remained in his possession until now. Presenting a faux diamond at the center (the real diamond was removed by Neely and replaced with the CZ years ago), the "[size] 12" ring displays five genuine diamonds at the points of the star. Exhibiting EX quality overall, it is stamped "BALFOUR 10K" in the interior band. An absolutely gorgeous presentation piece representing the first Cowboys Super Bowl, and one of the most impressive seasons during the Tom Landry era. Letter of provenance from Ralph Neely.

    The Ralph Neely Collection

    A disciple of legendary head coach Bud Wilkinson at the University of Oklahoma during his collegiate years, and the iconic Tom Landry while serving the Dallas Cowboys for the entirety of his professional career, Ralph Neely will go down in history as one of the most prolific offensive tackles in football history. An All-Pro four times, and a two-time Pro Bowler during his thirteen-season NFL career, the Little Rock, Arkansas native was an instrumental force in earning four Super Bowl trips for the Cowboys, claiming two Lombardi Trophies for America's Team. The following lots were consigned directly by Mr. Neely, and each will be accompanied by a signed letter of provenance from the 1964 All-American.
