An NFL championship ring said to have once belonged to Hall of Fame running back Jim Brown is being auctioned online.
According to the item description on the auction website, the ring was “obtained directly from a Brown immediate family member and sold by Lelands.com in 1998.”
Lelands.com claims that “[during] that original auction preview, Jim Brown himself inspected the ring and acknowledged its authenticity.”
Bidding for the ring has reached $33,275 as of Monday, per the auction website. The auction ends on July 25.
Brown rushed for 1,446 yards and seven TDs in 1964 for Cleveland. It was the first and only title the Browns won in his illustrious nine-year career.
UPDATE 6:03 p.m. ET: Brown now contends that the ring was stolen from him in the late 1960s.
