Default How Much Is An NBA Championship Ring Worth?

I've always wondered, does anybody have an idea?

I Know Terrell Owens sold his NFC Championship ring a while back for a couple hundred thousand. I'm pretty sure the rings are worth a lot.

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.

3. Prizes: Each Official Winner (defined below), after appropriate verification, shall receive one (1) genuine San Antonio Spurs 2005 NBA Championship Ring (the "Prize") that will be the same size, make, and model as those awarded to the Spurs' players. The name of each Official Winner shall be engraved on their respective Prize within fourteen to twenty-one (14-21) business days after it is awarded. Each Prize awarded shall be a male version of the Spurs' Championship ring. The approximate appraised value of each Prize, based on its estimated retail value, is $15,000.00. No substitution of the Prize may be made, and Prizes are non-refundable, are not subject to exchange, and may not be exchanged for cash. Official Winners will be responsible for payment of all federal, state, and local taxes.

why would any athlete ever sell it?
the money they earn makes the $15,000 feel like scrub change.
unless that athlete probably blew all his money..

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.

I remember a Rick Reilly article in SI once that talked about how much a lot of athletes hated wearing them because they were so bulky and cumbersome. They just collect dust in a trophy case.
