Got a thing for bling? Or just a Ravens' memorabilia collector with a naked ring finger?
New Jersey-based Goldin Auctions announced Monday they're offering fans "the chance to slip their fingers into more than a dozen football championship and Super Bowl rings," including a ring from one of last year's Super Bowl-winning Ravens.
Damien Berry, a reserve running back for the Ravens from 2011-2013, has made his Super Bowl souvenir available.
A ring from the Ravens' Super Bowl XXXV win is up for grabs, too, courtesy of Jamie Sharper, as is a 1958 Baltimore Colts NFL Championship ring originally awarded to Colts' defensive back and kick returner Leonard Lyles.
According to the Baltimore Ravens' website, the team's ring last year was a 10-karat white and yellow gold ring, containing 243 round cut diamonds, and possibly, the flashiest Super Bowl ring ever. A recent New York Giants' Super Bowl ring sold for more than $50,000.
Also available at the right price (and we have no idea what that is): Jamal Lewis' 2000 Ravens' Super Bowl trophy.
"This is a rare opportunity for a fan or a collector to own a Super Bowl ring less than a year after it was earned and one from a landmark NFL game," said Ken Goldin, founder of Goldin Auctions on the company's website. "NFL Championship rings and Super Bowl player rings are coveted by collectors because it is rare for them to become available."
