Value: $40,000

The ring shown here belonged to defensive lineman Dexter Manley, who played for the Washington Redskins in its 42-10 Super Bowl win over the Denver Broncos in San Diego.

Manley, nicknamed the “Secretary of Defense,” is considered an all-time great, but battled drug addiction and eventually served two years in prison on a cocaine conviction.

Manley later revealed that he was functionally illiterate, despite having studied at Oklahoma State University for four years.

The ring is 10k gold with diamonds and rubies. It weighs 50 grams, is about a size 11.5, and was made by Tiffany & Co. The ring sold for $40,000.
