Robert Kraft’s Super Bowl LI ring goes for $1.025 million

And that’s that.

The bidding on Patriots owner Robert Kraft’s Super Bowl LI ring peaked more than a week ago at $1.025 million, and it remained there until bidding closed.

No new bids were entered, so the 35th bid was the winner, and $1.025 million more will go to COVID-19 relief efforts.

The bidding quickly rocketed from $75,000 to $1 million in just a few days, but then it leveled out and remained there. There had been speculation that Kraft himself would swoop in with the winning bid and keep the ring; if he did, he swooped in with plenty of time left in the auction, and he got lucky that no one pushed it to $1.05 million.

So someone will be getting a 283-diamond keepsake and donating a significant amount of money to a very good cause.

  1. “Someone paid $1.025 million dollars for a Super Bowl ring? Bwahahhahahhaha,” laughs Vladimir Putin while rubbing his XXXIX ring.

  2. My first thought was Kraft would rather pay the Million and keep the ring. Was it a shot at Brady or just trying to better his name? My first thought was it was a shot at Brady.

  3. Wow. Win-Win for everyone involved. Just wish I could afford to donate that kind of cash. Wow.

  4. I hope he kept that ring. That’s like $5 to him, and the ring is priceless. Also might be his last now that Brady is gone. Hang onto that Bobby, you already lost one to Putin, at least keep 5 for one full hand.

  6. Richard Pryor said “Cocaine is God’s way of telling you you have too much money.” Apparently, so is Kraft’s ring.

    How is this a shot a Brady?

  8. We may never know who the winning bidder really is, but I’m betting that it was Arthur Blank. It’s his only real shot at ever getting a ring.

    ==================
    Arthur Blank owns a team that had what should have been an insurmountable lead with a quarter to go in the Super Bowl. He is not the reason the Falcons lost that game, but for some reason his name comes in the comments for these stories about Kraft’s ring. Why? A quick scan of NFL owners show that 12 have never won a SB, and 7 of those have never been to a SB. Maybe one of them bought the ring because it is their “only real shot at ever getting a ring.”

  10. Arthur Blank is certainly not at blame for the loss. But you know what? I’m not a fan of either team but almost every time when I think back to that Falcon loss the one picture that sticks out in my mind more than any one single play, is of him dancing on the sidelines when thinking the game had been won. An epic moment that turned out horribly wrong.
