By Dan Parzych

On January 15, 1967, the Green Bay Packers became the first team in NFL history to win the Super Bowl after their 35-10 over the Kansas City Chiefs.  Now, a sports fan can officially say they own a part of history after a championship ring from Super Bowl I after winning the item from a sports memorabilia auction over the weekend.

According to Jeff Ash of the Green Bay Press Gazette, the championship ring of former Packers tackle Steve Wright sold for $73,409 at Grey Flannel’s auction last week–which ended up being the highest football item sold. The auction by Grey Flannel made $2.4 million overall and believe it or not–Wright’s ring wasn’t the top item sold.  The top item from the auction ended up being a Julius Erving game-worn autographed Virginia Squires road jersey went for $190,414.

Wright, who is now 68, spent four seasons playing for the Packers from 1964-67 and was part of the team’s first two Super Bowl championships. He was also a member of the team’s 1965 championship team–which was the final year before the merger agreement between the NFL and AFL.
