Who Will Buy Rafael Septien's '78 NFC Championship Ring? It's Going Cheap.

For whatever reason, Unfair Park's cross-the-street neighbor Heritage Auction Galleries' sale of one of four original Energizer bunnies this weekend is generating big news. Whatever. I was more interested in this item from the April Signature Sports Memorabilia Auction: Rafael Septien's 1978 NFC Championship ring, made by the fine folks at Jostens and valued at $2,000 to $4,000 but currently going for $600. (Wonder if his '87 guilty plea has anything to do with that.)

Says Heritage, "Our records indicate that this is the first such ring consigned to auction since teammate Jethro Pugh's sold in December 2002." According to the infallible Wikipedia, the ex-Cowboys kicker and longtime leading scorer is currently selling timeshares in Mexico.
