Robert Kraft auctioned off his Super Bowl ring as part of the "All In Challenge."
Robert Kraft is one of the most noteworthy owners in professional sports and it is all thanks to his work with the New England Patriots who remain one of the greatest dynasties in the entire history of the NFL. Kraft has six Super Bowl rings with the team, however, as part of the All In Challenge to help support charities associated with COVID-19, Kraft decided to auction off one of his rings.
As it turns out, he decided to give up his fifth ring which was actually won in 2017 when the Patriots came back from a 28-3 deficit against the Atlanta Falcons. This is perhaps the most historic championship the Patriots have and as you can imagine, it auctioned for an insane amount of money. According to TMZ, one lucky fan was able to secure the ring for $1,025,000.
That's a lot of money to spend on a ring but when you realize that it has 300 diamonds, you can't help but feel like it was money well spent. Not to mention, this is all going towards a good cause which will help numerous people as we try to get through this pandemic together.
It will be interesting to see what other kinds of memorabilia get sold during this time.
