Lawrence Taylor Ring
Published: May 22, 2012
Lawrence Taylor Ring, Lawrence Taylorâ€™s Super Bowl XXV ring has a new home and ownership of it came with a hefty price of $230,401, presumably ending a four-day saga involving a piece of championship jewelry, a former NFL icon and his son.
Itâ€™s unclear at this point who was responsible for making the winning bid of the 30 received by SCP Auctions for the item put into auction by Taylorâ€™s son, T.J.
The winner is not Giants defensive end Osi Umenyiora, who promised to buy the ring and return it to Taylor if he hit a specific number of Twitter followers. He set an initial target of 1 million early Saturday morning before lowering the number to 500,000.
Umenyiora, who had roughly 19,000 followers when he made the pledge, reached a bit more than 50,000 when the auction closed Saturday night. He did not place a bid.
At that point, the extended bidding period began and only those who had placed bids could continue in the auction for the next 24 hours until a winner was declared. (Boston Herald)
