    1963 Chicago Bears NFL Championship Ring Presented to Halfback Charlie Bivins. Under owner and coach George Halas, this Windy City powerhouse twice defeated the mighty Green Bay Packers during the regular season to deny them a shot at a third consecutive NFL Championship, which the Bears themselves would claim with a fourteen to ten victory over the New York Giants at Wrigley Field. It would be the franchise's eighth league title, their first since 1946 (and first under coach Halas), and their last before the 1985 team shuffled to Super Bowl glory.

    Presented is an extraordinarily rare ring from that sole NFL championship in a four-decade span, issued to halfback Charlie Bivins, who played seven of his eight professional seasons for Chicago. The elegant showpiece survives in virtually pristine condition, suggesting Bivins was not one to brag about his achievements. A single real diamond rests at center of a figural Wrigley Field at ring face, encircled by raised text reporting, "Chicago Bears 1963 World Champions." Left shank provides the NFL logo and the final score of the championship game. Right shank identifies the owner by surname and jersey number, framing a team logo "C" and figural football.

    Interior band measures to size eleven and a half and is stamped "Josten 14K." Total weight is thirty-two grams (32 g.). The first example Heritage has ever offered.
