Redskins 1982 Championship Ring (NFL)

"The money's nice when you win a Super Bowl," said Washington quarterback Joe Theismann after winning Super Bowl XVII, "but it'll soon be gone. If I don't spend it, my wife will. But, the Super Bowl ring is forever. That's what you're really playing for."

Following the Redskins' Super Bowl XVII victory, quarterback Theismann, a man of many words, said he wanted "the biggest, gaudiest, most conceitful ring ever made." While the Redskins spent more than double the NFL's then-allowance of $2,400 per ring, each of which includes 17 diamonds, theirs remains one of the sleeker designs in the history of Super Bowl rings.
