Lawrence Taylor puts Super Bowl ring up for auction
Lawrence Taylor has put his 1991 Super Bowl ring up for auction. Clearly LT has fallen on some tough economic times. The ring is from Super Bowl XXV, a game the Giants won 20-19 over the Buffalo Bills. It’s also famously known for Scott Norwood’s last-second missed field goal (sorry for the reminder Bills fans).
Presented here is arguably the most significant Superbowl player ring ever offered publicly. Lawrence Taylor’s own 1991 Superbowl XXV ring feature two football shaped diamonds on the face surrounded by worn blue enameling framed by seventeen smaller diamonds. Design elements include the name “TAYLOR” on the left shank above a Giants helmet and his number “56”. Engraved on the interior band in the full name “LAWRENCE TAYLOR”. The ring shows considerable wear, that in some eyes, only enhances it aura. A phenomenally important memento from one of the greatest football players of all-time. Size: 12.
Yea, this is pretty damn sad, much like the post-career of Lawrence Taylor himself who’s currently on probation for sexual misconduct with an underage prostitute. The ring is expected to go for close to six figures, although it currently stands at 37,982. Is that enough to cover LT’s hefty legal fees? Who knows. It should at least cover an encounter with a prostitute, presumably one of legal age.
