The San Antonio Spurs have developed a legacy over the past 13 years as a team of ravenous championship skill. What started off as the Twin Towers combination of David Robinson and Tim Duncan in 1997 quickly turned into Spurs NBA Championship Rings. Four rings to be exact.
The Spurs’ legacy, of course, dates back to the 1970s ABA when George Gervin was a perennial scoring leader and the team was one of the lucky survivors to transition to the NBA during the 1976 merger.
San Antonio’s first NBA title was to come in 1999. Following a shortened season following a lock-out due to collective bargaining issues, the Spurs ended the season with a 37-13 record. They were equally as dominant in the playoffs with a record of 11-1, beating the Knicks for their first NBA title. Four years later, the Spurs edged of the Suns, Mavericks, and the Lakers before defeating the Nets in yet another NBA title in 2003. This would also mark an end to celebrated star David Robinson’s career in the NBA and the beginning of rising star Tony Parker.
The 2005 season would end with a 59-23 record. But the Spurs edged out another title beating the Pistons in 7 games for the third NBA title in seven years. In 2007, they would also best the Cavaliers in 4 games for the fourth title. That totals to four Spurs Championship rings in 9 years.
A replica ring on eBay for the 1999 Spurs consists of a high quality copper with gold plating and usually sells for $150-200. The same specs are true of the 2003 and 2005 replicas and they both bring nearly as much. The 2007 replica of the Spurs championship rings have top-quality CZ replacements and 24kt coating. The CZ’s are considered AAA quality and they range from $105 and $140.
What is especially unique about the 1999 and 2003 rings are they were won with David Robinson and Tim Duncan, but the 2003 ring was with the addition of Tony Parker, whom Duncan partnered with to bring the last two Spurs championship rings home.
