NFL great’s Super Bowl ring sells for $230G at auction

NEW YORK – Lawrence Taylor’s Super Bowl XXV ring eventually sold for more than $230,000 at auction as Osi Umenyiora admitted defeat in his unlikely attempt to claim the prize for the New York Giants great.

The flurry of six-figure offers for the ring saw bidding for the lot extended past its deadline late Saturday before the 30th bid of $192,001 was declared the winner by SCP Auctions.
