    The greatest Giants team ever?

    1986 New York Giants Super Bowl XXI Championship Ring Presented to Trainer John Dziegiel. Frank Sinatra had it right. New York City has not just been the ultimate proving grounds of our young nation, but a town that expects success, that won't settle for anything less. And so, as the New York Giants Championship drought marked its thirtieth birthday in 1986, the hopes that joy might finally return to the storied franchise had reached the point of desperation. But as the victory tally grew from a meager three in 1983, to nine in 1984, and to ten in 1985, it appeared that the team was finally on a collision course with a bright new destiny.

    The Giants would win fourteen regular season games during the 1986 regular season, the highest tally in franchise history, and outscore their opponents sixty-six to three in the Divisional and Conference playoff games to earn a Super Bowl XXI date with John Elway's Denver Broncos. Those Vegas gamblers betting Big on Blue were not disappointed, as the favored Giants beat the nine-point spread and the forty-one point over/under with a thirty-nine to twenty victory to set production of Championship rings into motion.

    This one, identical in format to the ones earned on the field by Phil Simms and Lawrence Taylor, was issued to veteran Giants trainer John Dziegiel, a thirty-year fixture in the Big Blue clubhouse at the time of its presentation. A figural Lombardi Trophy is spangled by real diamonds on the ring face, set into a large blue stone surrounded by raised text boasting, "1986 Giants World Champions." Left shank identifies the recipient above a figural helmet and the season record, inclusive of the three postseason victories. Right shank reports the final score of the Super Bowl along with the logos of the game and the NFC, with a second nod to Vince Lombardi's eponymous award.

    Interior band is stamped "10K Jostens" and engraved with Dziegiel's name and the date of the Super Bowl. Size twelve (12). Total weight forty-eight grams (48 g.). Original wooden display case is included. Fine condition.
