IN HONOR OF SUPER BOWL LVI, A LOOK AT RELATED COLLECTIBLES FROM THE HERITAGE ARCHIVES
As a tribute to the 56th edition of America’s Greatest Game – to be played at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, Calif., on Feb. 13 – we rounded up some of the top-selling Super Bowl-related lots that have come across Heritage’s auction block, followed by a few special items you can bid on now.
Presented to William “Refrigerator” Perry, this 1985 Chicago Bears Super Bowl XX championship ring is the one and only original of the largest Super Bowl ring ever created. It sold for $203,150 on July 30, 2015.
When it was sold on Aug. 18, 2018, for $168,000, this set of full Super Bowl tickets spanning the years 1967 to 2018 was the all-time finest complete set of all 52 full tickets on the PSA Set Registry.
When the New York Giants defeated the New England Patriots 17-14 in 2008’s Super Bowl XLII, it was considered one of the biggest upsets in professional sports history. This battle-scarred helmet, worn during the game by MVP Eli Manning, sold for $54,000 on Aug. 17, 2019.
Another piece of Perry memorabilia, this signed Chicago Bears jersey saw game action over a four-year period, including in Super Bowl XX. The jersey, which was custom built for the Fridge’s massive frame, sold for $63,000 on Aug. 29, 2020.
THE JOY OF PAINTING
This 1972 Super Bowl VI original painting by LeRoy Neiman offers a panoramic field-level view of Tulane Stadium in New Orleans, where the Dallas Cowboys won their first NFL championship, beating the Miami Dolphins 24-3. The vibrant oil-on-board work sold for $72,000 on Aug. 21, 2021.
THE BLING RING
Sporting more than 80 diamonds weighing a total of 5 carats, this 1995 Dallas Cowboys Super Bowl XXX championship ring was presented to linebacker Godfrey Myles. The ring, which has an estimate of $60,000+, marks the third time in four seasons that the Cowboys claimed the Lombardi Trophy.
HAVE A BALL
Because each team uses its own footballs on offense, the New England Patriots symbol beneath the Super Bowl LI logo on this official NFL ball assures that it was once in the hands of MVP Tom Brady. The game-used ball, which carries an estimate of $30,000+, represents Brady’s fifth NFL championship victory, this time against the Atlanta Falcons in 2017.
This 2002 Super Bowl XXXVI full ticket signed by Tom Brady is the finest example of a ticket from Brady’s first championship with the New England Patriots that exists. Graded PSA Gem Mint 10 – PSA/DNA Auto 10, this rare find – which has an estimate of $80,000 or more – earned perfect ratings for both the condition of the ticket itself and that of Brady’s black-Sharpie signature.
