Super Bowl V was the first championship game played on artificial turf, and also the first one played after the NFL-AFL merger. Due to the inordinate amount of miscues, including 11 turnovers, many penalties and generally sloppy play and officiating, this game is sometimes referred to as the Blunder Bowl. In any event, the Baltimore Colts came away with a 16-13 victory over the Dallas Cowboys as Jim O’Brien kicked a 32 yard field goal with five seconds left. This attempt was set up by the Cowboys last of their four turnovers.

This is an original ring presented to a Baltimore Colts front office department director, and is the exact size and style the players received. The top features a large .85 carat diamond surrounded by a white-gold horseshoe embedded with seven blue stones, all directly placed on a larger blue stone. Around the perimeter of the sunken face reads "BALTIMORE COLTS WORLD CHAMPIONS". One shank has the Colts helmet, with name "CAMPBELL", his position "AP DIR" on both sides, and score of the Super Bowl, while the other side has the year “1970”, the Lombardi trophy and “Super Bowl V”. This 14k gold size 8.5/48 gram ring has the old "JOSTENS14K" stamped in the band. The type of Josten’s stamp was used up to 1972, proving this is an original ring, not a replacement or reproduction later on. It is extremely rare to see original Super Bowl rings hit the auction market, especially ones from a very early Super Bowls, and this is the first team issued authentic 1970 Super Bowl ring ever presented at auction. This provides a strong opportunity to acquire this scarce precious vestige of early NFL history. It is apparent the original owner enjoyed this ring, but did not abuse the privilege, as this item exhibits light wear, consistent with “special occasion” usage. Despite the 44 years of use, the ring is all original, remains in tremendous shape and displays very well. From the first Super Bowl after the historic NFL-AFL merger. Near Mint overall condition.
