Rick Harrison and his team from the popular reality show "Pawn Stars" are seizing the opportunity presented by the Super Bowl taking place in their town. The Gold & Silver Pawn Shop, featured on the show, has recently put up for sale some championship rings from previous Super Bowls.
Among the items available is a Super Bowl ring from the 2007 New York Giants, priced at $77,500. This particular ring holds significance as it represents the Giants' victory against the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLII, which ended the Patriots' undefeated season. Made by Tiffany & Co., the ring was originally owned by a member of the Giants' staff.
In addition, the pawn shop also possesses a ring from the 2021 Los Angeles Rams, which is more affordable at $20,000. The Rams clinched victory in Super Bowl LVI against the Cincinnati Bengals with a touchdown pass from Matthew Stafford to Cooper Kupp in the final minutes. Similar to the Giants ring, this one also belonged to a team staffer.
Rick Harrison reveals that they often receive inquiries about sports championship rings, but interest in Super Bowl rings tends to soar around the time of the big game. With Super Bowl LVIII happening in Vegas, Harrison hopes that fans of the Giants and Rams will be inspired to win big at the casinos and then seek to own a ring from their favorite team.
Apart from the Super Bowl rings, Gold & Silver Pawn is selling AFC Championship rings previously owned by NFL players. These include one from the 2011 Patriots priced at $32,500, and another from the 1989 Denver Broncos priced at $40,000. It is important to note that player rings are usually more valuable compared to staff rings and thus come with higher price tags.
Rick Harrison emphasizes that his pawn shop only discloses player names to potential buyers who demonstrate genuine interest.
