Former American football wide receiver Hakeem Nicks, who was one of the best in the league prior to his injuries that deflected his career, is parting ways with his Super Bowl XLVI ring. At present, the bid is $25,000 remaining on the auction for three days.
According to TMZ Sports, the New York Giants star has decided to part ways with his Super Bowl ring putting it up for auction this month. Hakeem Nicks is offering us a chance to make a piece of NFL history.
Auctioning the expensive piece which the 34-year-old helped Eli Manning and the Giants win in a legendary game against Tom Brady and back in 2012 also the Patriots is currently at $25,000, though officials at Heritage Auctions stated to TMZ Sports that subsequently, it could get up to over $80,000.
The ring is enormously big, it is a size of fifteen pieces that is fully loaded with diamonds and indigo blue and it weighs in at massively 95 grams.
Several histories is also attached with it as Nicks was an immense reason for which New York managed to disappoint Brady in the game of SB XLVI. In the contest, the former first-round pick totaled 10 catches for 109 yards. And for Manning in the fourth quarter team had some huge grasp, a game-winning drive.
Still, the reason is not clear for Nicks’s decision for selling the piece. Yet pursuant to Heritage Auctions, the ring comes with a letter of the source from the former wideout and TMZ Sports is told a section of the earnings will go to charity.
The bidding ends later this week, as per reports.
