Grey Flannel Auctions May Auction To Feature Original Super Bowl I Player’s Ring

In May, Grey Flannel Auctions will offer to the highest bidder the Super Bowl I player’s ring belonging to former Green Bay Packer Steve Wright. Under the guidance of legendary coach Vince Lombardi, the Packers defeated the Kansas City Chiefs on Jan. 15, 1967 to take home the first Super Bowl trophy. Wright played offensive tackle for the Packers in that landmark game. The ring to be auctioned in May comes directly from Steve Wright and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Wright himself. It will be offered at auction with a $10,000 reserve. “To our knowledge, the May sale will mark the first time an authentic player’s ring from Super Bowl I has ever come to auction,” said Grey Flannel Auctions president Richard E. Russek. The auction will close for bidding on May 11, 2011. Watch for additional details soon at www.greyflannelauctions.com.
