Bankrupt Ex-Raiders Punter Ray Guy Auctions Super Bowl Rings for $96,216
Former Raiders punter Ray Guy sold his three Super Bowl championship rings for $96,216 at auction to help pay off his debts as part of a bankruptcy case.
Guy, 61, who played in seven Pro Bowls during his 14-year career, won Super Bowl titles with the Oakland Raiders following the 1976 and 1980 seasons and with the Los Angeles Raiders after the 1983 National Football League season.
He filed for bankruptcy protection in Augusta, Georgia, in April 2010 and got authorization May 23 to sell the rings, according to court records.
The rings were sold by Nate D. Sanders Inc., the Los Angeles-based auction house that issued a news release yesterday with the final sales price. The auction company said each ring contained at least 22 diamonds.
