Mid-Summer Classic Auction 2013
This lot is closed for bidding. Bidding ended on:
Travis Jervey was a backup running back who transformed himself into a Pro Bowl special teams player, the very first Green Bay Packer player honored in that fashion. He never played special teams in college, but excelled when the Packers asked him to cover kickoffs and punts, which helped salvage his career. His size and speed made him an ideal fit. In the 1997 Super Bowl, Jervey laid one of the first blocks that sprung Desmond Howard’s 99-yard kickoff return touchdown, as the Packers beat the Patriots. Presented here is his 1996 Packers Super Bowl XXXI ring, an imposing 10K gold beauty that boasts approximately five dozen real diamonds used in creating the famed Packer logo on the face, and another ring of more than three dozen diamonds encircling another outside ring. The words "World Champions" are on top and bottom of the face; one shank has Packers 1996 and the word "Tradition" engraved, while the other has Jervey's name and No. 32, along with a Packers helmet and the team's record of 16-3. The ring is in nothing less than spectacular condition, as-issued with light evidence of wear. Ring Size 10.
Comes with a Letter of Authenticity from Travis Jervey.
