Joe Robbie was the founder and original owner of the Miami Dolphins pro football franchise. It wasn't long into the team's existence that they began winning, and winning big. Robbie launched the franchise when the NFL expanded to Miami in 1966. Robbie was the owner during the Dolphins' perfect season of 1972, when the team went 17-0 and won Super Bowl VII, and also when the team won Super Bowl VIII, which is the memorable season for the ring we are presenting here.

The sparkling 10K gold ring made by Jostens features two round diamonds mounted at the top center surrounded by cushion-shaped blue glass. The words "Miami Dolphins World Champions 72-73" border the top of the ring in embossed lettering. The two diamonds on the top of the ring represent the Dolphins' back-to-back wins in the '72 and '73 Super Bowls.

One side of the shank reads in embossed lettering "Robbie/ Owner" surrounding an embossed Dolphins logo. The other side of the shank reads "Super Bowl/ VII/ VIII/ Back To Back," with the words surrounding an embossed image of the National Football League's (NFL) Lombardi championship trophy along with the team names and scores from each respective game. Stamped into the interior band of the ring is "Jostens ©10K." Engraved into the interior of the band is a signature that reads "Joseph Robbie." Mr. Robbie passed away in 1990.

The ring has been reviewed by PSA/DNA, which has stated, "It is our considered opinion that the ring is genuine." Size 8.5, 36.7 grams. The ring is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from PSA/DNA.
