Father’s Day is just around the corner.
Sweating what to get the old man, how to really surprise him?
Sure, you could get him a tie (or if you’re a dad, just re-gift the tie you got), or take him out to dinner.
But why not show dear old dad just how much he means to you. Give him the gift of football. You can never go wrong with the gift of football.
If your dad is a Cowboys fan – and a lot of dads are – here’s your chance to blow him away with the greatest gift a fatherly fan of America’s Team could ever dream of.
A Cowboys Super Bowl ring.
That’s right. Tell me your dad doesn’t secretly long for one. He’s been wanting another Cowboys championship since 1995, since before he was a dad, probably.
You could put your trust in Jerry Jones, Jason Garrett, Rob Ryan and company to bring home the Cowboys’ sixth Super Bowl title. But given their playoff success the past 15 years or so and the fact they play in the ultra-competitive NFC East, that option seems a little risky. Do you really want to take a chance on making the old man wait that long?
Didn’t think so.
Well, you don’t have to wait.
But you do have to have about $45,000 – the asking price of a Cowboys’ Super Bowl ring from Dallas’ 30-13 win over Buffalo in XXVIII that’s currently for sale on eBay.
Here’s a description: This players’ ring is made of 10k gold and all real diamonds weighing approx. 57.5 grams. This ring is a size 12 and contains all of the proper markings.
Here’s the mystery: Only the eventual owner of the ring will know which player it belonged to.
Here’s a link to the Cowboys’ roster and fun facts from that 1993 season, if you want to peruse the former players it might belong to.
Think $45,000 is a little high? I mean, what if it belonged to Dallas tight end Scott Galbraith? Well, you could pay a lot more.
Here’s a link to a slideshow of Super Bowl rings, including a Packers title ring from 1966 – before the game was even called the Super Bowl – valued at $100,000.
So don’t delay. Ante up for the old man today.
What’s that? You say you don’t have $45,000? Don’t have $45?
Aw, don’t sweat it. Get him a tie, and a big hug and tell him you love him. He’ll love it.
