The Super Bowl is aptly named, as winning it is one of sport’s most difficult goals. Watched around the world, a stage as big as it comes in professional sports, the Super Bowl winner is a champion. Amongst the rewards for capturing this elusive prize is a ring to commemorate the moment. They are cherished for the memories they produce, and mark a victory that few achieve. The Miami Dolphins Super Bowl ring represents something a little more.
Made for players and coaches, these rings are carefully crafted symbols of greatness, and are therefore cherished amongst the collectors. There is obviously a high demand for all Super Bowl championship rings, but in particular a season of perfection that has not been matched since. That it is so difficult to go undefeated throughout the regular season and the playoffs is a mark of why the National Football League is America’s most popular sport. Being perfect through an NFL season is unimaginably tough. Yet the 1972 Miami Dolphins were the last team to accomplish this feat, with several teams making a run at joining them in perfection but falling. That great team had several unforgettable performances. Legendary quarterback Bob Griese and capable backup Earl Morrall combined to lead the team to a 17-0 record on their way to the title. Larry Csonka and Jim Kiick led a ground attack that was a brutal and beautiful way to defeat an opponent. The path was paved for them by Hall of Fame offensive linemen Larry Little and Jim Langer. It is no wonder that the Dolphins Super Bowl VII ring is amongst the most desired in the memorabilia world.
The collector looking for an original 1972 Dolphins Super Bowl ring probably better look for the replicas that are available on eBay. This ring belongs to one of the most legendary teams to ever play the game of football and with only a few originals reaching the market today, the next best thing is a copy. It may not date to the time period, but it’s still a great way to commemorate the NFL’s only perfect season.
