Ray Guy’s Raiders Super Bowl Rings Hit the Auction Block
Ray Guy used his powerful legs throughout his career in the NFL to boom kicks down the field. He was named to seven Pro Bowls and played in 207 consecutive games, a testament to both his abilities and his durability. His impact was such that he award presented to the best collegiate kicker each year even bears his name.
However, he was unable to escape his mounting debt and, at the age of 61, recently declared bankruptcy. Now, as part of his repayment plan, Guy must sell his three Super Bowl rings that he earned with the Los Angeles / Oakland Raiders. Guy spent his entire career with the team after being drafted by the Raiders in the first round of the 1973 NFL Draft.
The three rings will be included as one lot in a current Nate D. Sanders Auction and include rings from the following championships:
Super Bowl XI (1977) – Raiders v. Vikings
Super Bowl XV (1981) – Raiders v Eagles
Super Bowl XVIII (1984) – Raiders v Redskins
The rings are expected to bring in as much as $90,000 once the auction ends August 9th. Bidding has already reached $13,110, though the reserve has not yet been met. To place a bid or find out more about the items, visit the auction listing page on the Nate D. Sanders Auction website.
Visitors to the National Sports Collectors Convention in Chicago can catch a glimpse of the rings before they are shipped off to the highest bidder. The rings will be on display from August 3rd through 7th.
