For a nice amount of money, you can buy a Super Bowl ring from a former Chiefs running back.
For anyone interested in having a ring of your own from the Kansas City Chiefs championship run last winter, one that culminated in Super Bowl LIV, you can go one of two routes. You can either find yourself a nice replica ring, made available by Jostens, or you can apparently get an authentic ring from one of the team’s former running backs. Although to do so, it’s gonna cost you a pretty penny.
Former Chiefs running back Mike Weber has apparently decided he’d rather have the money than the memorabilia when it comes to his short stint with the Chiefs. TMZ first pointed us to the news. The former Ohio State product has put his ring up on the auction block with Goldin Auctions, and those interested have from now until the end of the month to bid on it. You’ll also need at least $55K, since that’s where the bidding is currently at.
Weber’s ring comes with all the accoutrements you first heard about when the Chiefs announced the Super Bowl rings in the first place. The team just handed them out last month to players and coaches and staff members. Just know that the ring has literally hundreds of diamonds and rubies along with all kinds of other meaningful symbols and valuable elements.
Weber was quite a lucky man for his timing in joining the Chiefs in the first place. The team signed him on January 8. They won the championship just a few weeks later, and then the team re-signed him shortly after the Super Bowl. However, they decided to release him after the NFL draft brought Clyde Edwards-Helaire and other talent onto the team. He never appeared in a single game, nor was he ever on the active roster, but Weber was given a ring nonetheless.
Weber first entered the NFL as a rookie free agent with the Dallas Cowboys after his career with Ohio State ended after the 2018 season. As of press time, he remains available as a free agent.
