    2009 Nelson Ward Virginia Tech Hokies Orange Bowl Championship Ring. Earning an automatic bid to the 2009 Orange bowl, courtesy of a 30-12 victory against Boston College in the 2008 ACC Championship Game, Virginia Tech defeated the No. 12 Cincinnati Bearcats in the popular bowl game at Dolphins Stadium by a score of 20-7. Offered here is a Hokies Orange Bowl Championship ring that was presented to star tight end Nelson Ward for his contributions during the game and a memorable 2008 season. Despite consisting of a non-gold metal and presenting faux diamonds throughout, this is unquestionably one of the most attractive rings in our April Signature Auction. Measuring at "[size] 12.5," it exhibits Mint condition, while "Nelson Ward" is engraved in the interior of the band. A perfect piece of jewelry for any VT alum or discerning championship ring collector.
