Counterfeit Super Bowl Rings Confiscated On Way To Illinois
Sorry, but there are no special deals when it comes to buying yourself a Super Bowl ring.
The Reward For Winning A Championship In Sports
When your team wins the title, of course, they get a trophy to proudly display in their case. Unfortunately, that's for everyone, so you don't get your own. Don't worry, the individuals get something even better. That is a one-of-a-kind championship ring. In my opinion, the ones for the Super Bowl are the best.
How Do You Get A Championship Ring?
Well, you have to earn. Either as a member of the team or staff. Sometimes, athletes will auction off their title jewelry to earn some extra cash. You could also buy a fake one on the internet. There's a chance of spending thousands of dollars and not even knowing it's counterfeit.
Counterfeit Super Bowl Rings Confiscated By Custom Agents
More than 400 fake Super Bowl championship rings bound for Illinois were recently seized in St. Louis, according to authorities.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers on Nov. 11 intercepted the shipment from China of 422 rings bearing an image of the Lombardi Trophy and confirmed with an import specialist that the rings were inauthentic and infringed on an NFL Properties trademark, authorities said.
The fake championship jewelry was heading to Jerseyville, which is a small town in Illinois. You would think they were going to Chicago. The estimated value of the rings if they were real is $300,000.
