Green Bay Packers: Super Bowl I

All You Need to Know About Green Bay Packers Championship Rings Leave a comment

The Green Bay Packers have won more championships — 13 — than any other team in National Football League history.

They won their first three by league standing (1929, 1930 and 1931), and 10 since the NFL’s playoff system was established in 1933 (1936, 1939, 1944, 1961, 1962, 1965, 1966, 1967, 1996 and 2010).

Green Bay also is the only NFL team to win three straight titles, having done it twice (1929-30-31 and 1965-66-67).

In addition, the Packers won the first two Super Bowls (over Kansas City in 1966, 35-10, and over Oakland in 1967, 33-14), as well as two more recently (over New England in 1996, 35-21, and over Pittsburgh in 2010, 31-25).

Since the league implemented a playoff system in 1933, the Packers have played in the NFL’s deciding game 13 times (10 NFL title appearances from 1936-67, three Super Bowls after the 1970 merger). Only the Giants (19) have played for more titles.

Story Behind Each Green Bay Packers Championship Rings

SUPER BOWL I : 1966: GREEN BAY PACKERS

Bart Starr, QB Designed by Packers coach Vince Lombardi and teammates Willie Davis and Bob Skoronski, Starr was beyond proud of his Super Bowl I ring. “I think Bart just brought it home one day when they gave it to him at the Packers’ office,” Starr’s wife, Cherry, said. It was pretty enough, with a 1-carat diamond set in a globe of white gold. But Starr preferred wearing his Super Bowl II ring with three diamonds, emeralds, rubies and sapphires. One day Cherry got a call claiming that Bart’s original Super Bowl II ring was being sold on eBay for $100,000. “I panicked,” she said, “and went running back to our safe and opened it up and thankfully it was still there. It scared me. It was a duplicate, but it looked like the real thing.” To ensure nobody ever sold Starr’s rings, Cherry donated them to the team’s Hall of Fame during Bart’s final trip to Lambeau Field in 2017.

SUPER BOWL II : 1967: GREEN BAY PACKERS

Bob Long, WR It’s a good thing Long has three rings — one for each of his children. The receiver has one for the 1965 NFL Championship, one for Super Bowl I and one for Super Bowl II. “I have three kids, so I’m glad I have three rings,” Long said. “When my first son, Andrew, was born, I gave him my ring and put it in a safety deposit box. I haven’t seen it in 40 years. My daughter, Jordan, gets one and my adopted son, Christian, gets one.” Long showed up to the first day of Packers training camp this past summer wearing his ring from Super Bowl II, and he was proud to explain the ring’s three diamonds. “[Vince] Lombardi designed the rings himself and my Super Bowl I ring has one diamond,” Long said. “Super Bowl II, Lombardi wanted something to recognize the event of three straight championships.”

SUPER BOWL XXXI  : 1996: GREEN BAY PACKERS

LeRoy Butler, S “I just hoped it was in the shape of a G,” said Butler, the All-Pro safety. “That G means something to me, obviously Green Bay, but it means greatness and after 30 years of not being in the Super Bowl, we wanted it to be special. When I heard it was a G I was elated, I really was.” Butler rarely wears his ring and he says he has a good reason. One of his teammates left his ring at an airport security checkpoint and was lucky to get it back. “That story freaked out a lot of people,” Butler said.

SUPER BOWL XLV : 2010: GREEN BAY PACKERS

Charles Woodson, DB After winning the NFC Championship, Woodson told his teammates: “For two weeks, think about one. Let’s be one mind. Let’s be one heartbeat. One purpose. One goal. One more game. One. Let’s get it.” It’s why the number 1 along with the words “mind,” “goal,” “purpose” and “heart” are inside each ring. “You see that 1 and the words, and it was like, ‘Wow,’ you’re floored,” Woodson said. “When you talk to the team in any capacity, you never know what’s going to stick. You try to say something that guys can kind of grab on to. For that to be inscribed on the ring told me that it meant something not only to the players but to the coaches. Now, there’s something that we can actually hold on to forever.”
