Default Here Come The Super Bowl XLIX Ring Knockoffs!

Knockoff championship rings from the Patriots recent Super Bowl victory, are showing up for sale on eBay.



How in the world does, eBay, the NFL, Jostens, and the New England Patriots allow the sale of knockoff championship rings?

I am not affiliated with anyone making or selling knockoff rings and I am not endorsing them.

As us collectors already know, buying from shady sellers, who sidestep the law, can be disastrous, and good luck trying to get your money back if you purchase one of these items and are disappointed with them, or worse, they don't show up in your mailbox.

The seller of this replica Super Bowl XLIX ring, can easily be found on ebay. The top of the ring looks pretty accurate, and I have to admit, they nailed the inside engraving too (you can see for yourself at eBay).

The maker of this replica championship ring did a poor job on the two sides of the ring, but for the $99.00 selling price, it's hard to argue or talk someone out of wanting to purchase this ring.

Another issue to consider before purchasing this Super bowl ring: Can we be sure the ring is sized correctly? The manufacturer had no idea as to what the real size of the authentic super bowl ring is so I'm sure it's an educated guess. It's probably not close to the correct size.

If the buyer wants to wear the ring, it will probably discolor and some of the replica diamonds may fall off, since they are glued in. However, if the buyer wishes to display this ring on a shelf or in a glass enclosure, the championship ring should hold up well.

If you decide to purchase this replica championship ring, keep in mind they always go down in price as other replica championship ring manufacturers jump in and make this ring too, so you're better off waiting to purchase the ring.

Any thoughts on the quality of this replica ring, and, if you are a fan of the team or of championship rings, would you buy one?

I think people buying a ring for $99 understand that it's a cheap replica, no? I might buy one knowing that I would just put it up on a shelf, certainly not with any intention as passing it off as the real thing.

Absolutely - they know it's a replica and no one would get fooled buying it and thinking it's real.

I just tried to explain as much as I could from all angles.

They really do look great on a shelf.

I am amazed that ebay, the nfl, the patriots, and Jostens allow these to be sold.

Jostens has done a "replica" ring paperweight that's available through the team store. Not really close at all, but it makes me wonder if the replicas were a souvenir of sorts that's now sold out.

Not too surprising, if there's a few bucks to be made most teams will go for it.
