Lawrence Taylor Super Bowl Ring Sells For High Bucks
Former New York Giants linebacker Lawrence Taylor’s Super Bowl XXV ring has sold and Osi Umenyiora isn’t the new owner of the jewelry.
Taylor’s ring sold Sunday night at auction by the firm SCP Auctions. Umenyiora had said if he got 1 million Twitter followers he would step up and purchase the ring to return to the former Giants star. When Umenyiora, who started the day with less than 30,000 followers realized that was impossible, he lowered his aim to 500,000. Needless to say, he finished more than 400,000 short of his goal.
Taylor’s ring sold for $230,401 at the auction as there were 30 total bids. Taylor’s son is the one who sold the ring via the auction house.
