Default Real Boston Championship Rings or High-End Fakes? Help Needed.

As a collector of high end championship rings, I usually know my stuff – but this picture from Twitter has me baffled:





Can anyone help figure out what the heck is going on?

I will give full credit on my daily championship ring blog to anyone that can help determine if these are real championship rings. And if they are real, how in the world did they wind up together in someone’s authentic Patriots Super Bowl presentation box?

Here's the little I know: The wood and glass championship ring presentation box looks to be 100% authentic and is from the most recent Super Bowl ring.

It’s a Jostens box and it has the proper frost-engraved wording on the outside of the box (we can see the reverse lettering showing through the glass).

A neat design of the Jostens championship ring boxes is that they hold championship rings in place by using a magnet. A small wooden piece of wood, with a two magnetic ends, is covered in velvet and shaped like the letter “u”. These “u” shaped holders hold the championship ring to the bottom of the inside velvet (with the magnet hidden beneath the velvet).

The person who owns these three championship rings, has two extra ring holders and is using them to secure the Bruins Championship ring and the Redsox World Series ring in the presentation box.

The person, who made this tweet is Max Farrari. In searching the internet for information about him, I found he’s a talented and accomplished amateur golfer from Framingham Massachusetts. So it appears that Max, who made the tweet, was probably posing with someone else’s championship ring set.

That’s all I know; so please help if you can shed any light on how these championship rings from three different sports are housed in one presentation box.

One possible clue, is that Jostens did make all three championship rings, so could this be the ultimate “Salesman-Sample” ring set or “official Jostens display set”?

Thanks!

Maybe it's a Pats player who won three rings and has one custom box, whereby two were removed and other sports guys related to the golf club put their rings in for purposes of the pic. Only Max knows I guess

Occam's razor tells us that the simplest hypothesis is usually the correct one.

Seems like an awful lot would have to happen to wind up with that photo if it was three athletes at the same golf club.

I am learning towards a Jostens display or salesman sample set. I am hoping someone in the Boston area may know more about this.
