Louisiana State University has claimed three NCAA football national titles (1958, 2003 and 2007), 14 conference titles, eight division titles, an all-time winning record of 721-389-47 (.643) and has housed one Heisman Trophy winner. The Tigers have won two national titles in the last decade. They’ve also enjoyed success–and won title rings–in other sports, too. LSU championship rings have been selling very well on eBay, for very low prices.
In 1958, the Tigers under coach Paul Dietzel went 11-0 for the regular season. The team was led on the field by Billy Cannon, who would win the Heisman Trophy the following year. During this period, there were disputes over who was crowned the national champion. Iowa was awarded a national championship trophy by the Football Writers Association of America after winning the Rose Bowl 38-12 over California. But LSU was named the national champion by both the AP Poll and the Coaches Poll before their Sugar Bowl victory over Clemson, 7-0.
LSU went 13-1 in 2003 (8-1 in the SEC) coached by Nick Saban. The Tigers beat Georgia for the SEC Championship and went on to face the Oklahoma Sooners in the Sugar Bowl for the BCS Championship. This was a controversial decision because Oklahoma, LSU and USC all had only one loss, but LSU and Oklahoma were selected for the championship game. There were many protests at USC over this decision. Although LSU defeated Oklahoma 21-14, USC defeated Michigan 21-14. LSU remained #1 in the Coaches Poll but USC was #1 in the final AP Poll. It wasn’t until 2007 that LSU would take home an untainted Tigers championship ring, although they lost two regular season games that year.
While we’ve talked a lot about LSU football championship rings, don’t forget the Tigers’ success in basketball during several eras as well as a terrific baseball program that has produced numerous titles.
LSU championship rings have actually been selling quite well on eBay. They have sold for as little as $1.29 (I couldn’t even make this up) and as high as $72. The business done on eBay has not been quite about the prices, but more about the volume. You can expect to see these made of alloy and weighing about 135 grams. Some are covered with crystal and others have CZ’s that are either hand set or glued. Most are from the 2007 championship but it’s wise to check back here on a regular basis as we provide direct links to rings on eBay.
