    The 1980 NFL Defensive Player of the Year wins it all...

    1983 Los Angeles Raiders Super Bowl XVIII Championship Ring Presented to Cornerback Lester Hayes. Though he only recorded a single tackle in Super Bowl XVIII, the game is widely regarded as the greatest of Hayes' ten-year NFL career, so thoroughly blanketing Redskins receivers Charlie Brown and Hall of Fame legend Art Monk that half the field was effectively off-limits to quarterback Joe Theismann. The Raiders' suffocating defense limited the high-octane Washington offense to just nine points--the only game of the regular or post-season in which they were held to less than twenty.

    Hayes still owns a piece of the Raiders franchise record for interceptions with thirty-nine, sharing the distinction with Hall of Famer Willie Brown, so while any Super Bowl ring is highly significant in the collecting marketplace, the offered specimen is of particular note. A black onyx on the ring face holds 310 points of diamonds, primarily in three figural football shapes, signifying the Raiders' three Super Bowl Championships. Smaller diamonds form the left and right borders, with text reading "Los Angeles Raiders" and "World Champions" forming top and bottom respectively.

    Left shank reports the lopsided results of the AFC Championship and Super Bowl contests along with the year and the word, "Pride." Right shank identifies Hayes by name, position and jersey number along with a Raiders logo, the word "Poise," and "1983." Interior band is stamped "14K" and measures to a size eleven and a half (11.5). Total weight is forty-seven grams (47 g.). Fine condition. Original purchase LOA.
