College Bowl Rings

Shop online and you’ll find college bowl rings for sale virtually every day.  Given the number of bowl games played each year, it may not be surprising.  Just doing the math of 30+ games by 60 or more players and you’ll see how many could potentially be available.

That doesn’t mean they’re common.

The number of individuals who decide to sell their bowl game ring after they’ve left school is small.  Most keep them.  However, it does mean that the odds of finding at least one or two available are better than the odds of finding a World Series ring, NBA championship ring, Super Bowl ring or Stanley Cup ring.

Obviously, championship rings from major bowl games won by big time schools like Alabama, Auburn, Ohio State, USC or Wisconsin are going to sell for a higher premium than those from smaller Division I programs because of the number of the number of die-hard fans who may battle collectors in an auction.  While collectors may chase the widest variety of rings possible, fans of a particular school who may have elite collectors may set their sights on adding a specific bowl game ring.

For a variety of reasons, players are more apt to sell their college bowl rings once they leave school.  Some need money.  Some feel they didn't like their coaches and are glad to leave the memories behind.  Others just aren't into jewelry and would rather have cold, hard cash.

Because they're more readily available (to a degree at least) and usually less expensive than a pro sports championship ring because there's simply less 'bling', rings from college bowl games are an attractive target for fans who want something unique in their collection.  They're certainly great conversation pieces and make for excellent display pieces in a memorabilia room or office.

Like other championship rings, bowl rings are available as authentic, salesman sample and replica rings.  An authentic Mississippi State Peach Bowl ring was recently offered for $750 online.  A 2008 USC Rose Bowl replica ring could be had for $199.  Bowl game rings that once belonged to players participating in a major bowl game often sell for over $2,000.  The more popular the school, the more competition you'll have.

Collecting college bowl rings offers a challenge that allows the average collector an opportunity to own something that’s both rare and attractive.  They're more apt to wind up in the open market on sites like eBay, too, because of the sheer number of players who earn them each year.  Check the listings below and it's inevitable you'll find both authentic and replica championship rings for sale or aucton.
