One of the more attractive and specialized fields of ring collecting has collectors searching long and hard for All-Star rings for sale.
These rings don’t come on the market very often because making an All-Star team is a special moment in a player’s career. Like World Series, Super Bowl or NBA Championship rings, they are treasured momentos, seldom given up for sale. However, for players who decide to liquidate their memorabilia collections or made multiple All-Star teams, rings are sometimes seen as expendable pieces.
All-Star Game rings are often less gaudy than championship rings. In fact, older rings often lead more toward a costume jewelry look. They’re not always expensive, either. Dominique Wilkins’ 1986 NBA All-Star Game ring once sold in a sports memorabilia auction for less than $3,000. Tommy John’s 1986 All Star team ring brought just over $1300.
All-Star Games typically showcase the city and the game’s official logo and are given to players on both the winning and losing teams as a commemorative keepsake.
Considering the rings are manufactured almost exclusively for well-known on field personnel, they represent a considerable bargain for collectors who appreciate the history of the All Star Game ring.
