It might surprise some fans in Chicago to see Bulls championship rings for sale. As much as the individual players from the championships covet the rings, the real deal still appears on auction sites from time to time. In fact, one sports memorabilia auction house put up a complete run of 1990s Bulls rings consigned by a former team official. Complete with presentation boxes, they’re spiffy—and extremely valuable.
That’s rare. Few players, coaches or front office folks are going to cough up those rings. Collectors, especially those on a budget, have no chance of owning a real Bulls title ring, but the good news is you can find a really nice looking Bulls replica championship ring for sale via our links to eBay, which is bursting with cool replica, salesman’s sample and yes, even some authentic NBA Championship rings.
A few years ago, former guard Randy Brown, who played for Chicago in ’96, ’97 and ’98 put his rings up on the auction block when he filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy. The three championship rings went for over $58,000. That price is certainly indicative of the demand for the actual rings and how much money an individual investor might have to fork over to acquire one of the elusive actual rings.
Cost is the major difference between any replica and actual championship ring. Let’s suppose Michael Jordan decided to put one of his storied title rings on sale on a site like eBay. Can you imagine how much money that would cost the individual wanting to bid and buy it? Jordan, who is generally considered the greatest basketball player of all time, is worth his weight in gold to this day in sports memorabilia. It’s so unlikely that we’d ever see a Jordan championship ring for sale that the demand would skyrocket quickly if he did opt to put one up for auction. Such an item might bring a record amount of money and hype.
The word is that Michael Jordan is still so fond of his six championship rings that he sports images of the six rings on his golf bag. So don’t count on those particular pieces of history becoming available anytime soon. Obviously the crown jewel in the Bulls championship ring chase for investors is any ring with the initials M.J. and the number 23 on it. Still, that doesn’t mean other Bulls championship rings aren’t going to bring a ton of money.
A 1993 salesman’s sample Bulls championship ring sold for $9500. Perhaps a salesman’s sample would be a different route other than a replica for the serious investor. The fact that this particular Salesman’s sample sold for nearly 10k is indicative of the value placed on rings that aren’t even the actual thing.
So fans are left with the option of cutting costs and purchasing Bulls replica rings that are for sale. These replica rings are typically made of Cubic Zirconia and can be found on auction sites like eBay for a minimal cost. Typically fans and investors can purchase these realistic looking rings for $200 to $1000 depending on the composition of the ring. The cost of the rings is typically determined by the composition of the ring. Some Bulls replica rings for sale are found for less than $100, and many of those are commemorative rings–not an actual copy of the team’s original rings. Most are fairly sturdy and solid, but be sure to check it out thoroughly before bidding.
A Bulls championship ring replica is a pretty solid option if you’re looking to add something really unique and flashy to your collection—or to buy a die-hard Bulls fan a pretty nice gift. Check out the links below to see what’s available right now on eBay, easily the number one place to find them.
