Tom Brady Super Bowl LI family ring hits auction block via Goldin

A Super Bowl LI ring issued to a member of Tom Brady‘s family is up for grabs right now via Goldin Auctions.

The size 10.5 world champions ring weighs 77.3 grams and is identical to the one issued to the quarterback who led his New England Patriots to a shocking come-from-behind overtime victory against the Atlanta Falcons a year ago. It’s a 10 karat white-gold ring with 260 diamonds worked into the design.

It’s believed to be the first ring or award tied to Brady to be hit the open market, and bidding opened at $20,000 — and there’s already action with the bidding.

The ring will arrive in a wooden presentation box and has the “BRADY” on its left side with all of the details of other rings, including owner Bob Kraft’s signature inside the ring.

How much might it go for? One potential estimate comes from the auction house: “When looking at the value and significance of family rings, one needs to go no further than the 2000 [Los Angeles] Lakers’ championship ring belonging to Kobe Bryant‘s father Joe Bryant that sold for $173,102 in July of 2013.”

After four bids, this ring sits at $28,000 with more than 26 days remaining before the final gavel. You can see several images of the ring in the gallery below and see more on the auction by clicking here.
