Former New England Patriots wide receiver Josh Gordon’s Super Bowl LIII championship ring sold at auction for $ 138,000, according to a report on Tuesday.
Gordon received a Super Bowl ring for his contribution to the Patriots title race in 2018, although he did not make the championship game himself. After playing a key role in the Patriots’ attack for 11 games, Gordon was suspended in December of that year for violating NFL drug addiction policy and missed the rest of the season, including playoffs.
LEBRON JAMES ‘SON BRONNY LANDS SPONSORING DEAL IN THIS OUTDOOR INDUSTRY
Heritage Auctions, a leading sports memorabilia firm, led the sale. The 10-karat ring features six Lombardi trophies in homage to the Patriots dynasty and was sold in its original box.
Gordon, 29, did not personally sell the ring, TMZ Sports reported in July. The auction was conducted on behalf of an anonymous souvenir dealer. Heritage Auctions initially set a price of $ 100,000 for the ring.
OBAMA ADVISED LEBRON JAMES AND OTHER NBA PLAYERS TO RESUME THE SEASON
Gordon was reinstated ahead of the 2019 NFL season, but the Patriots opted out. He signed with the Seattle Seahawks and played seven games for the team, but was suspended again last December for violating NFL policies on addiction and performance-enhancing drugs.
