Anderson's ring is embossed "World Champions Green Bay Packers 1965" around a Packer green synthetic stone, with one diamond, set in a white metal bezel, approximate total .68 carats, embossed on one side reads "Anderson" and "character" and on the other "Green Bay 23 Cleveland - 12, NFL, Dedication"; stamped "10K" inside. Former longtime Giants kicker Don Chandler joined the team in 1965, taking over field goal and extra point duties from Paul Hornung. He proved a valuable addition, as the Packers had to play a Western Conference tie-breaking play off game against the Baltimore Colts, winning 13-10 on Chandler's overtime field goal. Making their first appearance in the NFL title game in three years, the Packers held the home field advantage against the defending NFL champion Cleveland Browns (11-3), as the game was played at Lambeau Field. At halftime the Packers held a slim 13-12 lead, but scored all the points in the second half on a Hornung touchdown and Chandler's third field goal. With the victory the Packers won their ninth overall NFL title, sixth in the championship game era. The ring shows minor wear. Size 11 1/2.
