Jamal Lewis' Super Bowl ring sells for $50,820 at auction
A Super Bowl ring given to former Baltimore Ravens running back Jamal Lewis sold for $50,820 at an auction on Sunday.
The ring, from the Ravens' Super Bowl XLVII victory over the San Francisco 49ers was given to Lewis by Baltimore owner Steve Bisciotti in 2012 when he was inducted into the team's ring of honor. Lewis did not play in the that Super Bowl; he was with the Ravens from 2000-06 before retiring in 2009 after three seasons with the Cleveland Browns.
The size-15 ring manufactured by Jostens is made of 10K white gold and contains 3.75 carats worth of diamonds. The ring is the same size and style as the rings given to the players, except Lewis' reads "ROH" on the side for "Ring of Honor."
Lewis filed for bankruptcy in 2012, listing $14.5 million in assets and $10.6 million in debts.
Among the other items sold at the auction was the 2009 AFC title ring the New England Patriots gave to Matt Estrella, the team's videographer who was implicated in the "Spygate" scandal in 2007. That size-9 ring was made of 10K gold with a total of 55 diamonds and sold for $16,940.
