The ultimate goal for every NFL team is to have that glorious walk after the Super Bowl with the Vince Lombardi Trophy and lots of shiny Super Bowl rings. But, who has the most Super Bowl rings in the history of the NFL? It is a general notion that Tom Brady is the one as he has been the Super Bowl MVP for the maximum number of times.
However, it is not true. There is a person who has exceeded Brady’s record, and there is also a person who matched Brady’s record even before him. But, who are they? Find out below.
Before that, let’s have a quick look at the importance of a Super Bowl ring. Since the 7-pound Lombardi trophy is only meant to go in the franchise’ showcase for eternity, the organizers came up with the plan to create more jewelry.
They created the highly precious Super Bowl rings which are gifted to all of the players and staff of the NFL Championship winning team. The Super Bowl rings symbolize their victory. They are usually made of yellow or white gold with diamonds, and include the winning team’s name, logo, Super Bowl number, and the phrase “World Champions.”

The person that has the most number of Super Bowl rings, even more than Tom Brady, is Bill Belichick, who was the head coach of the Patriots.
Belichick has a total of 8 Super Bowl rings. He won six Super Bowls with the Patriots, and two as defensive coordinator with the New York Giants in the 1980s.

How much is a Super Bowl ring worth?
Super Bowl rings are priceless, but they still have a price tag attached in the eyes of jewelers. The Super Bowl rings are made up of yellow or white gold with diamonds. Thus, they also have a materialistically high value.
Although there isn’t an official price tag attached with any Super Bowl ring, it is estimated that a single ring is worth between $30,000 to $50,000. The more accurate price depends on whom that ring belongs to, which Super Bowl does it belong it, and is it historically special.
There are multiple factors that decide the price of a Super Bowl ring. You can’t fix a single price tag for all of them.
The last collection, owned by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers was estimated at $35,000 per piece by a local jeweler, but he went on to mention that it goes as high as $100,000 at the auction.
In 2018, a Super Bowl LI ring of Tom Brady’s family member sold for $344,927 at an auction, as reported by ESPN’s Darren Rovell. The family version of the ring is a slightly toned-down variant for family members.

How much are Tom Brady’s Super Bowl rings worth?
Tom Brady has seven Super Bowl rings, which is the record for any NFL player. If we set the average price per ring to $40,000, and multiply it by seven, the base value of Tom Brady’s all seven Super Bowl rings will be $2,80,000.
However, Brady is a legend. No one will be able to purchase his ring at the base price. His rings could break down all the records and will probably shock everyone at the auction.

So, it is not possible to calculate the “real” value of Tom Brady’s all seven rings. We can only find the minimum estimated price.
Can you buy a Super Bowl ring?
Yes, it is possible, but only if you are filthy rich. It’d easily cost around $100,000 to buy a Super Bowl ring. And, they are not even available easily.

There is a website where former players’ rings are put up for auction. You can find the rings there and try bidding for them. However, we won’t recommend that though.
The Super Bowl rings are special. They only belong to the team and teammates who have put in endless hours to become the champions. The money would probably never be able to match the blood, sweat, and guts. That’s why Brady is the player and Belichick is the person with the maximum number of Super Bowl rings.
