A look at the Packers Super Bowl ring

Packersring

The Packers are in the middle of receiving their Super Bowl rings on Thursday night.

It’s a private event, although a few players and Packers personnel will be speaking after the ceremony. We’ll get some quotes passed along from them, but in the meantime we know some Cheeseheads out there would probably like to see the Super Bowl ring.

So there it is, courtesy of Packers.com.  Mike Spofford of the team’s website explains the symbolism of the ring in a column.

We could tell you more, but this isn’t Packers.com.  The fans of the other 31 teams in the league could revolt.

    See that Urlacher? Proof the Bears ARE NOT and WERE NOT better than the Packers.

    How are they doing this? Doesn’t this violate the lockout rules about management/player contact?

  3. momobait says: Jun 16, 2011 10:41 PM

    Awesome!! I wonder what the Packers super bowl ring will look like next year? Go Pack Go

    Yes, unless a special exemption is given for things like charity work, and, *ahem*, Super Bowl ring celebrations.

    I need to think about getting a job as a valet, then I could have my very own Superbowl Ring!

    That is an awesome ring. The best part might be that they’ve immortalized Charles Woodson’s NFCC post-game speech on the inside of every ring:

    “Also engraved inside are the numeral “1” along with the words “Mind, Goal, Purpose and Heart” – the very number and terms veteran cornerback Charles Woodson employed with such fervor in his memorable postgame locker-room speech following the NFC Championship in Chicago.”

    Ha ha yeah. Feel it.

    That’s quite lovely. They’ve done a very nice job, especially when you read about the symbolism. They managed to include a lot of history without making it gaudy. Hope they’re all enjoying a night together free of any thoughts about the lockout.

    If you rub it, it teleports you to the civilized world. Unfortunately it is a limited edition and not widely available in Wisconsin.

    Thank goodness, this just in…..there is no picture of Favre that goes with the presentation of each ring. Meanwhile, Favre was last seen texting the Wiener man.

    Beautiful rings, I love the symbolism.

  11. vikescry1 says: Jun 16, 2011 11:14 PM

    SWEEEEEEEEEEEEETTTTTTTT!!!!! I smell jealous statements coming!!! (seanx40)?????

    oh and urlacher i think you’ve takin too many hits to the head( the bears are better than the packers) he’s upset he let his boyfriend favre down.

  13. qoojo says: Jun 16, 2011 11:26 PM

    The ring looks very nice. A lot of nice touches too like 13 diamonds in the G, one for each championship won, and 92 diamonds surrounding the crown, one for each year of the packers’ existence.

    “How are they doing this? Doesn’t this violate the lockout rules about management/player contact?”

    Have you been hiding under a rock lately? The NFL granted them special exemption weeks ago.

    It’s……..it’s…….BEaUtiFUL!!! *sobs in joy into beer*

    GO PACK!!!!

    Where’s Pervy?

  18. footballhistorian says: Jun 17, 2011 12:12 AM

    It’s beautiful in it’s simple design. I haven’t read about the design…but it’s impressive. Been a long time since 1995…with skelator at the helm…I don’t think my Cowboys will be seeing one for a while.

    And green for the Packer fans teeth.

    Those are some beautiful rings, and clearly a lot of work went into designing them. Congrats Packers, you earned ‘em.

    Sincerely,
    An Eagles fan

  22. bellivi says: Jun 17, 2011 1:02 AM

    Classic, nicely done.

  23. mikeb4u says: Jun 17, 2011 1:45 AM

    Mmmm, the Packers still SUCK…

  24. saintcasey says: Jun 17, 2011 4:06 AM

    Damn! That is one ugly ring!

  25. joetoronto says: Jun 17, 2011 7:28 AM

    Get we get a pic of the Chargers Super Bowl Rings?

    Oh wait….

  26. 4ever19 says: Jun 17, 2011 7:31 AM

    Just like all championship rings – excessively bloated overdone design. I said the same thing about my beloved Colts when they won the SB in ’06. Why not just something simple and tasteful. You know, sports championship rings are a microcosm of what is wrong with American society.

    But they forgot the box of fudge

    Horrible looking rings! No pawn shop would take them!

  29. vikefan says: Jun 17, 2011 8:15 AM

    Many congrats packers, a great season & well deserved.

  30. luckylosers says: Jun 17, 2011 8:28 AM

    Beautiful bling. Glad they beat the Stealers. Why “world champs”? — just put NFL champs. Yemen or Uganda might give us a game.

  31. 3octaveFart says: Jun 17, 2011 8:37 AM

    Funny that they spelled out “Packers” on the side using the Steelers logo font.

    @3octaveFart

    “Funny that they spelled out “Packers” on the side using the Steelers logo font.”

    If you’re referring to the side view on the right, that is actually their text logo and endzone font. Not to burst your Steeler-centric universe’s bubble.

  33. steelerlady43 says: Jun 17, 2011 9:57 AM

    I like their ring, very nice..I think it’s very symbolic of GB with the G emblem and the green backing with diamonds on the letters. Congrats again to the Packers…just hoping we actually have a season and a chance for the Steelers to shoot for #7!!!

    Go Steelers!!!

  34. schmitty2 says: Jun 17, 2011 10:07 AM

    Nice rings! I’m sure we will still see one show up on “Pawn Stars” at some point. Rick Harrison will offer a hundred bucks for it

  35. CKL says: Jun 17, 2011 10:26 AM

    Those are gorgeous. I love reading about all the symbolism cleverly depicted in each part too. I’ve been to the HOF and seen the display of all the rings. It’s really cool to see how they have evolved over the years.
    Congrats to GB.

    ______________________________

    Packers officially founded: 1921, but had been competing in professional football in America since the late 1800′s.

    Steelers officially founded: 1933.

    Steelers adopt a military stencil typeface font: 1963 (at that point, the Packers had already won 8 World Championships), I believe that’s right around the time that Hines Ward was born.

    I know it’s crazy to hear, Pittsburgh, but you are not even second fiddle. At this point, the Bears (vomits) are second to the Packers’ 13 Championships, with 9 of their own.

    And yes, those count. Just because they didn’t have some magical name for it, a World Championship is still a World Championship.

  37. Deb says: Jun 17, 2011 11:22 AM

    @3octave …

    Come on now. I love my Steelers, but the Packers are one team that doesn’t need to look at our rings for ideas on how to design theirs.

  38. thephantomstranger says: Jun 17, 2011 11:35 AM

    Who pays for these things? They must cost quite a bit, and a lot of people get one. Assuming the NFL provides the bling, maybe they wouldn’t need to have a lockout if they cut the budget down to something like $10,000 a ring.

    ==================================
    I think it was Tom Silverstein last night who reported the NFL gives $5,000 per ring for up to 150 rings. Everything else comes out of the teams pocket.

    From what I’ve read, the NFL does but the team has to pay for the ones that are over the 150 ring limit.

    So what do you find so offensive about it, that in America we exalt achievement???

  42. Deb says: Jun 17, 2011 1:00 PM

    @goawayeverybody …

    Gone for good.

  43. cusoman says: Jun 17, 2011 1:38 PM

    Ironic that these rings were designed by a MN based company. I’m sure Jostens kept a version for show as well, which means MN has Super Bowl rings here!

    … yeah, I know I’m reaching and it’s sad, but the sad state of pro sports affairs here means you’ve got to take what you can get!

    Grats Pack.

    those are nice, hopefully the 49ers can get another one of those some day.
