    Identical in every detail to player models!

    2001 New England Patriots Super Bowl XXXVI Championship Ring. The coronation was improbable in every regard. When quarterback Drew Bledsoe suffered internal bleeding after a brutal hit from New York Jets linebacker Mo Lewis in the second game of the 2001 NFL season, it was unheralded Tom Brady that was called to duty. He had been selected with the 199th selection of the 2000 draft, a sixth-round compensatory pick. In his first two starts, Brady posted passer ratings of 79.6 and 58.7. With just a single victory after four games, the long-suffering sports fans of New England resigned themselves to a lost season.

    But game five saw the young QB find his stride as he orchestrated two scoring drives to force overtime, and a third to set up a winning field goal to sink the San Diego Chargers. Brady would lose only twice more in 2001, in weeks seven and ten, stringing together an unbroken chain of nine victories to close out the season, inclusive of a dramatic twenty to seventeen defeat of the St. Louis Rams in Super Bowl XXXVI. It was the first taste of glory for the Patriots franchise, and for the man that would prove to be its greatest star.

    Presented is a ring issued to Patriots scout Jake Hallum but identical in all matters of design and components to those earned by the players themselves. After a half century of Championship drought, management spared no expense in the creation, the ring face smothered in real diamonds that cover every square centimeter not inhabited by the red and blue stones of the team logo, or by the raised text boldly proclaiming "World Champions."

    Left shank identifies the recipient by surname and "Staff" role along with a figural helmet, the season's impressive record, and the word "Team." Left shank supplies vintage, the Super Bowl's final score, a diamond-topped Lombardi Trophy in miniature, and the letters "U.S.A.," indicative of the swelling patriotism that the terror attacks of 9/11 months earlier had inspired. Interior band is stamped "Josten's 14K" and measures to a size ten and a half (10.5).

    Condition is virtually pristine, and ring remains housed in original wooden display case and even the original cardboard packaging. Appraisal paperwork.
