Lawrence Taylor’s Super Bowl XXV ring is up for auction, but the Hall of Fame linebacker isn’t the person who made the decision to sell.
His son is.
SCP Auctions has added an addendum to its bid page, stating: “This ring will be accompanied by two letters of provenance, one signed by Lawrence Taylor acknowledging he gave the ring as a gift to his son Lawrence Taylor, Jr. and a second signed by Lawrence Taylor, Jr. stating that the ring is in fact the authentic 1991 New York Giants Super Bowl XXV ring he received from his father.”
According to the bid page, Taylor’s ring received 21 bids, with the highest bid at $89,568 as of 2:15 p.m. ET Friday. The auction will end Saturday, with the estimated value of the ring between $75,000 and $100,000, according to the news release.
“Lawrence was in fact unaware of (the auction), but said he gave it to TJ, and it’s his right to do what he wants with it. He’s fine with whatever TJ decided,” Mark Lepselter, Taylor’s longtime representative, told FOXSports.com.
