If you’ve got about $10,000 laying around, you can have your own Green Bay Packers Super Bowl ring. Well, maybe not your own exactly, but someone else’s actual Super Bowl XLV ring.
Actually, it will be yours if you buy it, but it will have someone else’s name on it. You get the drift — the ring is real and for sale.
Anyway, there’s one sitting in a Grand Chute pawn shop right now. Unfortunately — or maybe fortunately, depending on your point of view — it isn’t a player ring.
“It’s not a player’s ring. It’s a staff ring and it fits a female hand,” said Dominic Volpe, one of the managers at the Pawn America pawn shop/retail store in Grand Chute, Wis.
The ring belonged to Sarah Pace, who runs operations for the atrium or something like that. In addition to players and coaches, the Packers gave Super Bowl rings to each of the organization’s full-time employees.
The ring wasn’t pawned, but was sold outright. We’re not exactly sure what that means, but it probably means Sarah isn’t strung out, turning tricks by the river and selling all of her belongings for cash, so that’s good.
The ring is being sold for $9,999 plus 5 percent tax. If anyone wants to buy it for us, maybe we’ll try to use it for an engagement ring someday.
