I'm not sure. I think they are bought from a company called Jostens which has a website. You could look up how much Mercury Mars sold his NFL championship ring for back in the day, which might give you a price range.
the estimated value is $15,000. but the sentemental value is alot more. if you have a legend like tim duncan, shaq, magic johnson, larry bird or michael jordan the value goes up substantially.

how could an athlete just sell away his championship ring? i mean i understand if you're going through some rough times, you're broke and everything so you're trying to get some $$$. but other than that, i don't see how. it's basically a symbol of the work you've put into trying to win that championship.
but to someone like darko it probably wouldn't mean shat to him.
a ring means a lot more if you are at least the top 5 contributer of a team..
if you just sat at the bench, it'd be kinda awkward to recieve that ring.
