Super Bowl LI may go down as the greatest Super Bowl of all time! This game had everything. Drama – the largest comeback in Super Bowl history and the first ever overtime in Super Bowl history. Records – 30 team and individual records were broken and history – including the New England Patriots playing in their ninth Super Bowl; Bill Belichick becoming the first head to win five Super Bowls and quarterback Tom Brady, who became the first quarterback to win five Super Bowl titles and the first player to win four Super Bowl MVP awards.

                What looked like the makings of a laugher, reminiscent of San Francisco 49ers beating the Denver Broncos 55-10 in Super Bowl XXIV or the Dallas Cowboys pasting the Buffalo Bills 52-17 in Super Bowl XXVII, the Atlanta Falcons jumped out to a commanding 21-3 halftime lead and extended that lead to 28-3 with 8:31 left in the third quarter. Nothing was going right for the mighty Patriots, even after scoring their first touchdown of the game with 2:12 left in the third quarter, the usually reliable kicker Stephen Gostkowski missed the extra point making the score 28-9. However, New England kept chipping away as Gostkowski would add a 33-yard field goal to cut the lead to 28-12 and Brady connected with Danny Amendola with a six-yard touchdown pass and James White’s two-point conversion run cut the lead to 28-20 with 5:56 remaining in the game. Brady and the Patriots got the ball back at their own nine yard line with 3:30 remaining and drove the length of the field to tie the game 28, thanks to James White one-yard touchdown run and the converted two-point conversion. For the first time in Super Bowl history, the game would be decided in sudden-death overtime.

                After winning the coin toss, the Patriots took possession at their own 25-yard line. Nine plays later, the greatest comeback in Super Bowl history was complete when James White ran two yards for the touchdown to close out Super Bowl LI for New England and cement the legacies of both Belichick and Brady. For Tom Brady, not only did he become the first quarterback to win five Super Bowls, passing Hall of Famers Joe Montana and Terry Bradshaw four Super Bowl victories, he also set Super Bowl records with 43 completions, 62 pass attempts and 466 yards passing.

This exquisite Jostens 10 karat white gold ring has a football shape and features a whopping 260 diamonds. The perimeter is surrounded in diamonds forming the shape of a football with the images of five Lombardi trophies, all covered in diamonds, inside the football. The Patriots corundum sapphire and ruby logo rests atop the Lombardi trophies, surrounded by diamonds, with a lone diamond acting as the star in the logo. “WORLD” and “CHAMPIONS” caps off this impressive front in raised relief.

                The left shank features “BRADY” and “PATRIOTS” in raised relief with an image of the lighthouse and bridge, the signature view of Gillette Stadium and accented with “5X” and the years of each New England Super Bowl victories “2016-14-04-03-01”. The right shank has in raised relief the “SUPER BOWL LI” logo, “NE 34”, “ATL 28” with the phrase “UNEQUIVACABLY THE SWEETEST” surrounding the Super Bowl LI logo, owner Bob Kraft’s postgame comment.

                Accompanying this ring is a special 5 x 8 x 3 inch presentation box. The shiny black exterior has an open glass front with “PATRIOTS” and their logo with “2016 WORLD CHAMPIONS LI” etched in silver. When opened, the box illuminates to further accentuate the beauty of this presented ring. This ring was not ordered by Mr. Brady or any member of his family, and neither Mr. Brady or anyone or any entity connected to Mr. Brady is involved in it's sale.   Also accompanying this ring is an official Jostens' Certificate of Authenticity and Appraisal made for "Brady".  When looking at the value and significance of family rings, one needs to go no further than the 2000 Lakers' Championship Ring belonging to Kobe Bryant's father Joe Bryant that sold for $173,102 in July of 2013.
