Players play their entire career for primarily two things, money to take care of their family, and to win a championship. When a team wins a championship they’ll usually give their employees a bonus, even better they’ll give them a championship ring too.
Well apparently one Green Bay Packer employee would’ve opted for the money, as team Employee Sarah Pace sold her Super Bowl XLV ring to a pawn shop in Grand Chute, Wisconsin according to ProFootballTalk.com. It was purchased by 71 year old Packer fan Dennis Brucks. As for how he feels about now having an authentic Super Bowl ring he had this to say;
“When you want something relating to the Packers, how can you get any better than this?”
Must be pretty cool to have that type of memorabilia, and couple that with witnessing the Ice Bowl in 1967 live he’s just about done everything there is for a Packer fan to do.
However, I know this has to make some all time greats that never won a ring salty that Pace would sell off their piece of history when they spent their entire career chasing the ultimate goal. Hopefully Pace isn’t going through grave financial troubles and that’s why she sold it. Perhaps she just isn’t a football and just didn’t see that value in keeping it.
