Robert Parish, the Hall of Fame Boston Celtics player who won four titles over more than two decades in the NBA, auctioned his 1981 NBA championship ring on Wednesday. According to GreyFlannelAuctions.com, the site hosting the auction, there were 15 bids for the ring and the winning bid went for $45,578 but the identity of the buyer was not revealed.

The ring comes with a Letter of Authentication from Parish and, according to the site, is in "near-mint condition".

Parish and his Celtics teammates earned their rings after defeating the Houston Rockets in the 1981 NBA Finals. It was the first of three titles won by a Celtics team that included fellow Hall of Famers Larry Bird and Kevin McHale. Parish's fourth ring is from the 1997 Chicago Bulls title run.
