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.

Watch Fitzgerald Send Cardinals To NFC Title Game

I pronounce this the greatest game I've ever witnessed. There aren't enough words to describe the ebbs and flows that occurred during the fourth quarter of this NFC Divisional Playoff. Both teams should be proud of the way they played, but the Cardinals will be the ones moving on after this Larry Fitzgerald touchdown.

Packers' Lacy Needs Oxygen After This Run

Green Bay Packers running back Eddie Lacy doesn't look like he's missed any meals recently, if you catch my drift. Despite the extra weight he's carrying around these days, Lacy was able to bust out into the open field for this huge 61-yard run.
