Green Bay Packer Willie Wood 1989 NFL Hall of Fame 10K Ring
Own this Very Rare Ultimate Prize of Every NFL Football Player!!!!

If you want to learn more about me visit the "About Me" page or go to this link


This auction was originally stopped on January 3rd by request of the NFL Players Association as they thought this ring might not have been Willie Woods actual HOF Ring. I was informed that the NFLPA requested that this auction be pulled and I had contacted and spoke to a High Ranking Executive with the NFL Hall of Fame in Canton, OH and the NFLPA then contacted the NFL Hall of Fame and they now NO LONGER feel that this Ring should be pulled and the Ring is back up for sale to the general public. The NFLPA will not be pulling the auction in the future. The auction will only end once someone buys it or if I choose to cancel the auction. Just wanted to provide this accurate info in case people wondered why the auction was pulled for a few days. So if the NFL Players Association has no reason to pull the ring and does not object to it being on ebay than this should tell you exactly what I have been saying all along that you are looking at and indeed bidding on Willie Woods Original and Real 1989 Hall of Fame 10K Ring!!

I originally had set this auction up and chose to use a certain charity to give a lot of money to but I was told that they didn’t want me to use their name and logo on this auction so I have now chosen another worthy charity that will and can use the money and appreciate it instead. It’s a shame that a charity would allow ebay to put their charity name on a list for any ebay seller to donate money to but when they actually choose them the charity complains and doesn’t want them using their name in the auction. I guess some charities don’t want my money. Its too bad too as money from my auction could have helped a lot of former NFL Players in need. Oh well the Jimmy V Foundation will certainly appreciate any and all monies I donate to them if the ring sells on ebay.

Due to the high profile and the buy it now price this auction has been designated as an “Approval Bidders” auction. Meaning in order to make an offer any and all potential buyers will have to email me so I can put you on the list to be able to place an offer or do the buy it now. It’s fairly simple and this cuts down on bidders who may not be serious about buying this ring. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me at the email address on my about me page.

Because of the High Value of this Ring and the fact that the winner or winners may want to keep their name out of the public eye and not want to draw attention to them selves the winner of the auction will remain private. If you want to make a “Best Offer” please so do and your privacy and offer will be kept strictly confidential.

This is a “Buy it Now”Auction with an option to submit your best offer. If you want to take a chance that I will accept a lower price than the Buy it Now price please make me your best offer. Keep in mind I will not sell this Ring cheap so No low ball offers please.

This item I have for sale this week can’t be called anything but RARE. Many people over use this term and in this care it’s not overused. Those who play football from the time your in Pop Warner to High School to college and to the NFL there is only one goal and that is to win a Championship. This Ring I have up for sale belonged to a person who more than other signifies a winner and a Champion. I have for sale the Original 1989 NFL Hall of Fame Ring belonging to Green Bay Packer Great Willie Wood.

With the Green Bay Packers Winning the Teams 4th Super Bowl Championship by winning Super Bowl XLV against the Pittsburgh Steelers no better time to buy a Ring that means so much to any NFL Player other than the Super Bowl Ring. It would be nice if a person from Green Bay or a group or organization in the Green Bay area will end up with the ring and bring it back to Titletown and give back the ring to a well deserving former Packers Great. As when I sold my 1996 Green Bay Super Bowl Players Ring a few years back I was happy to see it wind up back in Wisconsin and in the hands of some Big Packers Fans.

Willie Wood was a key member of the Green Bay Packers and the pro football dominance in the 1960s. Yet the 5-10, 190-pound University of Southern California quarterback who specialized in running the ball, was not drafted by any National Football League team.

He had to seek a tryout and prove his worth before the Packers accepted him as a free agent in 1960. Within a short time, Willie was recognized as a premier free safety in the NFL. He became a starter in his sophomore 1961 season and held that job for more than a decade until his retirement following the 1971 campaign.

Wood, who was born in Washington, D. C., won first- or second-team All-NFL honors nine times in a nine-year stretch from 1962 through the 1970 season. A Pro Bowl participant eight times, 1963, 1965 through 1971, Wood also played in six NFL championship games. The Packers won all but the first one in 1960.

Willie also was the starting free safety for Green Bay in Super Bowl I against the Kansas City Chiefs and Super Bowl II against the Oakland Raiders. His 50-yard interception return of a Len Dawson pass early in the third quarter of Super Bowl I broke open a close contest and paved the way for the Packers’ 35-10 triumph over the Chiefs.

Like many Packers who had a chance to handle the football, Wood compiled impressive statistics with 48 career interceptions, which he returned for 699 yards and two touchdowns. He won the NFL interception title in 1962 with nine steals. Doubling on the punt return team, Willie also won the league punt return championship with a 16.1-yard average in 1961. In 12 years, he carried back 187 punts for 1,391 yards and two touchdowns. In 1989 he was awarded the ULTIMATE Award for a NFL Player and that was enshrinement into the NFL Hall of Fame. This ring I am selling this week was the exact ring that Wood was presented to and was owned by Mr. Wood.

Consider that in any given year the super bowl winner will give out 200 to 300 Super Bowl Rings and you don’t have to have played in the super bowl to have a or get a Super Bowl Ring. Every year this happens. There are plenty of Players who get rings wont ever sniff the NFL Hall of Fame. Players like Dan Marino and Bruce Smith and Jim Kelly although have played in super bowls never got the winning Super Bowl Ring. There are players who get a Super Bowl Ring who never ever played a single down in a season. Still they get a shinny ring. To get a NFL HOF ring you have to be the Best of the Best. Willie Wood actually was one of these fortunate players who can say he won multiple Super Bowls and been awarded a NFL HOF Ring. These rings are truly special. Don’t get me wrong the Super Bowl Ring is highly desirable but this ring I am selling is 100 times rarer than any super bowl ring. In any given year there maybe between 3 to 6 people who are awarded HOF Rings. This is by far Rarer than the Super Bowl Ring. The HOF Ring is the culmination and continues excellence of a whole entire career not just one season. These Rings don’t come up for sale very often. One more thing that makes this Ring so special it belonged to a player from one of the iconic and legendary NFL Teams of all Time the Famed Green Bay Packers. Outside of the 26 players that the Chicago Bears has produced the Packers are in 2nd place with 21 Players in the NFL with Bret Favre who will be there as a Packer no doubt 5 years after he retires.

This is truly a once in a Lifetime opportunity to own a ring like this. This ring was once offered for sale by the famed Leland’s Auction House in December of 2003 and was won by a noteworthy Green Bay Packer Collector. I have obtained this ring directly from this well known Packer Collector. I have a signed letter of auth from this person stating this was Willie Woods’s actual ring. A copy of this letter will also come with this 1989 HOF Ring. Since I did not obtain this ring directly from Mr. Woods I had contacted an Executive with the NFL Hall of Fame in Canton, OH and he had VERIFIED that the ring I now possess looks exactly like what Willies Woods actual Original NFL HOF Ring would have looked like when he was issued this Ring in 1989. He also confirmed to me that the NFL started in 1998 and changed the ring so that the newer inductees now get a ring that has a blue stone with a single diamond in the center. So again this Executive with the NFL Hall of Fame verified that the ring I have is correct for the time period that the ring was issued out by the NFL and looks to be the ring that Willie was originally awarded in 1989. .

This is a 10 Karat Yellow Gold Ring was made by the L.G. Balfour Ring Company. The front of the ring has Pro Football’s Hall of Fame. There is a blue stone in the center with a Football player outlined in white on the blue stone. On one side it has the name of WOOD at the top and under that is 3 Football players and Elected1989 on top of a shield at the bottom. The other side has SAFTEY which represents Willie Woods Position. Below that is the front of the Canton Hall of Fame Building and under that is shield with Hall of Fame on it. The Ring is a size 11 ½ and weighs at 32.3 grams of 10K Yellow Gold. Inside of the ring it is engraved the “Proper Manufacture Markings” this being LGB 10K which stands for the L.G. Balfour Ring Company. This Ring was verified and confirmed by the NFL HOF in Canton Ohio as what Willie Woods Actual Ring would have and should look like when he was given this ring back in 1989. Since 1998 the NFL HOF Rings are now issued a Diamond on top of the blue stone instead of the White Football Player on the blue stone.

This Ultra Rare Ring will also come with a Letter of Authenticity from “Championship Sports Rings” which is one of the most respected sources for Authentic Rings in the country. To date I have never sold a Fake Championship Ring or ever had a complaint for selling such a ring. Not many sellers in this country can make this same claim so be careful who you buy from and what you buy.

A Very Large amount of the proceeds of this auction will go to Jimmy V foundation for Cancer Research.

Willie is currently living in an assisted care facility in Washington, D.C. and has had many operative procedures as a result of his being injured during his NFL career. He has had replacement knees and replacement hips, dementia and forgetfulness, and his current NFL pension of a little over $1100 per month is just not enough to pay all of his bills. In the Washington area a benefit was held for Willie to help raise over $25,000 to pay his medical bills. His situation is one of many of former NFL players suffering from disabilities and even dementia and need a lot more help than the NFL is willing to provide to ex-players.

Here are some interesting facts to observe and to most will be shocked.

Did you know that The NFL has estimated revenues of over $9 BILLION annually.

Average Salary
For 2009, the median salary across the NFL is approximately $1.4 million per year. Quarterbacks lead the pack, earning close to $2 million per year, followed by defensive ends at $1.5 million and offensive linemen at $1.2 million. Tight ends had the lowest average salary, at approximately $850,000 per year.

Minimum Salary
The NFL has a minimum salary requirement that is based on how many years a player has played in the NFL. The rookie minimum for 2009 is $310,000, and that number extends to a minimum of $860,000 for a veteran with 10 or more years of service.

In 2010 The average annual salary for a football player in the NFL is aprox $1.5 million per year.

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell earned $6.5 million in his first seven months as commissioner from Sept. 2006 to April 2007. Goodell now makes about $10 million a year including bonuses.

There are many more starling facts that would stun you if you knew. Face it the NFL the owners and the players of today make a LOT of money. So why aren’t the older players and players who played pre 1980’s and beyond not being taking care of when the NFL is clearly still a money making machine. Again I challenge every owner and every player to take a look at what this foundation is all about and you can see how much of a difference you can make. I am sure whoever wins or buys Willie Woods Ring is of course in a better situation than he is and it would be nice to reunite him with his special piece of his life and a legacy to what he accomplished when he was a player.

No matter if you’re a NFL Fan or a NFL Player making millions of dollars go to the Jimmy V website and make a donation to this worthwhile cause. Every fan and player out there can make a difference. So please donate to this cause or bid and buy this ring because you care about the former players of the past who missed out on making the money the players of today make and for those players who gave it their all just for the love of the game.

By the way in one of the photos in this ad you will see Willie Woods NFL HOF Ring next to an Actual Real Authentic 1983 LA Raiders World Championship 14K Diamond Ring. This ring along with the Original Lenox Presentation box will be up for sale at a later date. You never See REAL Raiders Super Bowl Rings with the Original Presentation Box for sale ever so watch for it.

They may not be the cheapest rings out there but they are ALL 200% Real. I have Never had a single complaint about selling knockoffs or fakes so buy from someone you can trust and has a proven track record of only selling nothing but THE BEST!!!
