    Description

    The greatest era in Miami gridiron history!

    1973 Miami Dolphins Super Bowl VIII Championship Ring Presented to Offensive Tackle Wayne Moore.
    It's the exception that proves the rule. The gridiron dogma that "on any given Sunday" any team in the NFL could beat any other has endured since the earliest days of the league, and only once in over a half century of the Super Bowl era has a team marched all the way from week one to the Lombardi Trophy without a single stumble. It's a distinction that elevates all artifacts related to the 1972 Miami Dolphins to the pinnacle of collecting desirability.

    That team would remain nearly entirely intact for the 1973 season, and though they'd fall in week two, and again in week thirteen, the 'fins would win all three postseason games by double-digit margins, including a twenty-four to seven Super Bowl VIII victory over the NFC Champion Minnesota Vikings. This is the ring awarded to their Pro Bowl offensive tackle Wayne Moore for his contributions to that successful title defense.

    The ring is very similar to the 1972 model in design, but it doubles up on the authentic diamonds set in the blue stone of the ring face to symbolize the team's back-to-back achievement. Raised text at perimeter reads, "Miami Dolphins World Champions 72-73." Left shank identifies recipient by surname and jersey number at top and bottom of an enameled team logo. Right shank reads, "Super Bowl VII, VIII, Back to Back," amidst Lombardi Trophy imagery and engraved details of the games' results.

    Interior band is engraved with Moore's facsimile signature and stamped, "Jostens 10K." The ring measures to a size thirteen (13) and weighs thirty-six grams (36 g.). Fine condition with only light signs of wear.
