    Three out of four makes it a dynasty!

    2004 New England Patriots Super Bowl XXXIX Championship Ring Presented to a Linebacker.

    UPDATE: Our consignor has contacted us to authorize Heritage to report his identity. He is Tully Banta-Cain. We will be updating our online images to "unblur" the name identifier.

    Is it finally over? With the New England Patriots bounced from the 2019 NFL playoffs in the Wild Card round, and the team's forty-two year old quarterback a free agent for the first time in his Hall of Fame career, the sun may very well be setting on the greatest era of dominance in professional football history. If that is indeed the case--if that glorious Brady/Belichick run ends at six Super Bowl Championships--then the market for the rings related to those seasons of glory will see a significant surge in appeal and value.

    This massive assembly of white gold and diamonds derives from the franchise's third trip to the mountain top in a four-season span, thus the official establishment of the team as a "dynasty." The Pats forced four turnovers by the NFC champion Philadelphia Eagles, who beat the seven-point spread but could not break its forty-four-year NFL championship drought in the twenty-four to twenty-one result.

    This ring was issued to a linebacker who appeared in every game of the regular and post-season, including the Super Bowl. He has requested anonymity so we will be blurring his name and jersey number in our lot photography, but we can assure that these details are present and undamaged.

    An enameled team logo emerges from a veritable sea of dazzling real diamonds on the ring face. Three figural Lombardi Trophies represent the running tally, and "World Champions" text sandwiches the figural football design. Left shank identifies the recipient by name and jersey number with text reading, "3 out of 4" and "21 straight." Right shank supplies the logo and final result of Super Bowl XXXIX with text reading "Back to Back World Champions" and "9-0 Playoffs." Interior band announces "Jostens 14K" and measures to a size thirteen and a half (13.5).

    The ring exhibits proud wear but still presents beautifully. Total weight is a hefty one hundred grams (100 g.). Letter of provenance from player.
