Lawrence Taylor auctions off Super Bowl ring

A little short on bling these days? A Super Bowl ring is just the thing.

The day after the New York Giants received their latest Super Bowl rings, former Giant Lawrence Taylor is selling his ring from Super Bowl XXV. It’s currently up for sale at SCPAuctions.com and is valued between $75,000 and $100,000, according to the auction house. Bidding will be open until Saturday and the top bid, among 14 Thursday afternoon, was $45,960.

The size-12 ring, which commemorates the Giants’ 20-19 victory over the Buffalo Bills in 1991, has two football-shaped diamonds surrounded by “worn blue enameling framed by 17 smaller diamonds,” according to the auction house’s description. The ring, SCP Auctions says, “shows considerable wear.”

In March 2011, Taylor was sentenced to six years’ probation after agreeing to plead guilty to sexual misconduct and patronizing an underage prostitute in a March 2010 incident.
