A stolen SB ring would be hard to sell. No reputable auction house/Dealer would buy it without collecting your personal info and reporting the purchase. In MD, VA, PA, NJ, DE as well as likely elsewhere, precious metal purchases require item description along with a state issued ID. IF the business correctly reported that as required by law it would be very easy to track down the original owner. IT's still stolen if it was left in a restaurant, engraved with someone else's name in it. Due to the value, that could cause jail time easily.
I think Vladimir Putin stole BA's Super Bowl ring... Bc
BC was right. Putin stole Kraft's SB ring. Kraft let him try it on and he walked off with it.
A PR spokes man for the Kremlin said it was a gift from Kraft or that was the understanding.
Nothing like starting an international incident over a Super Bowl ring.
But it would probably work a little better if it wasn't some douchey special teams player. Maybe if it was somebody like Peyton Manning or Ray Lewis you could really get something out of it.
Theft has a statute of limitations. If you happened to be the one to find the ring and successfully hid the fact you removed the ring, all you'd have to do is keep it (and keep your mouth shut) until the statute runs out.
One or two mistakes shouldn't taint a guy's legacy that much. I suppose Ray Rice is a douchey RB for fumbling 3 times in the playoffs?
In any case, you'd be more likely to get something from one of those ST players than you would from a big time superstar.
