Bidding on Robert Kraft’s Super Bowl LI ring already hits $1 million

Two days ago, the bidding opened at $75,000. Thirty-four bids later, the current bidding has made it to seven figures.

With more than nine days left in the auction that benefits COVID-19 relief, the leading bid for Patriots owner Robert Kraft’s Super Bowl LI ring already has hit the $1 million mark.

The ring contains 283 rings, a nod to the steep 28-3 hole from which the Patriots climbed before beating the Falcons, 38-35, in overtime. Falcons owner Arthur Blank didn’t appreciate Kraft’s decision to rub ice in the wound.

“I said to Robert, ‘You didn’t have to do the 28-3 in the ring,'” Blank told the New York Times in 2018. “It kind of pissed me off.”

We’re still hoping that Blank eventually will enter a $2.83 million bid on the ring. However, there’s an increasing chance that the final price will soar past that threshold.

Wherever it ends, it’s a great gesture from Kraft, a great cause, and so far a great result.

So let’s keep it going. One million homina homina homina $1.1 million homina homina homina $1.2 million, and so on.

  1. 38-35??? 34-28. The Falcons were never able to muster even a single point after the Pats woke up and got to work.

  2. Kudos to Kraft. Kudos to the bidders. Great cause. i know there are plenty of Patriot and Kraft haters but combine this with his giving use of the Pats plane to get masks in China…as Troy Brown would say BINGO we win again!

  3. The ring contains 283 rings,

    The deal isn’t as bad as it sounds when you read the ring must come with another 283 rings.

  5. And it comes with the one ring to control them all.

  7. I’m sure the Falcons don’t like the 28-3 reference, but from the Pats’ point of view, it’s a remarkable achievement. To them, it’s the huge hole they made it out of. So, eye of the beholder – a sore memory for one team, a reminder of overcoming adversity to another.

  8. Well Mr.Blank, you could outbid everyone and own the ring ….then smash it with a hammer since your so mad about that Super Bowl loss. It might be very thereputic for you.

  9. Never liked Kraft because over and over he has proven to be a misogynist, but respect him for this. Forgive him, for now. Hope West Palm Beach DA will, as well.

  10. I told you people that Tony Romo will be the high bidder he’s always wanted a ring, and this is his only chance at getting one that’s authentic

  11. I’ve said this before, and I want to make it clear that this is not a statement against Robert Kraft or anyone else selling their rings for charity, but I still just cannot understand the allure of purchasing championship trophies or rings by collectors or fans. I mean, it’s cool that you have a Superbowl ring, but it doesn’t mean anything if you didn’t play a part in winning the championship. It’s like purchasing a citation medal or ribbon from a war veteran. If you didn’t earn it then it looks kind of…well, pathetic.

    I hope it sells for a billion, and hope Kraft is the guy who buys it. When you become a multi-billionaire allures is all there is. It’s all about status.

  13. Why would anyone want to buy a ring they never earned. If you wanna donate , just donate.

  14. “The ring contains 283 rings”

    $1M for 283 super bowl rings sounds like a decent deal. Keep one and sell the other 282.

  15. Wait until you have to kiss the ring. You might be surprised on which one you are actually bidding on.
