    1989 and 1999 Gary Lane Game Worn Super Bowl Referee Jerseys and Super Bowl XXIII Ring. Some of the most knowledgeable sports memorabilia experts don't realize that even referees receive rings for working in the Super Bowl, and this auction listing is proof that these gorgeous pieces of jewelry do exist. From the family of former NFL player and referee Gary Lane, here we present his game-worn Super Bowl uniforms from the two "Big Games" he appeared in during his storied career in stripes. Also included is the ring he received for participation as side judge in Super Bowl XXIII. Showcasing a staggering 25 diamonds at the center, the 10 karat gold "[size] 11" stunner has "Super Bowl XXIII January 22 1989" on one shank and "Lane Side Judge NFL 120" on the other. His Super Bowl XXIII shirt has the proper "Bug" tag in the collar, with his No. 120 and "R (referee)" on the front and back. Even more desirable is his jersey from Super Bowl XXXIII, as it displays an attractive Super Bowl patch sewn-on the right breast. "Cosby [size] [XXL" tag is in the collar, while his No. 120 and "SJ (side judge)" is sewn on the front and back. A bit of an obscure football lot, but highly significant nonetheless. Letter of provenance from family member.
