Brandon Spikes Discovers His Football Ring for Sale on eBay

By    |   Wednesday, 17 Jun 2015 09:39 AM

Former New England Patriot Brandon Spikes said he discovered his 2011 AFC championship ring for sale on eBay for nearly $20,000 after his agent claimed it was stolen from the linebacker.

Spikes, who was released from the Patriots last week when he became connected with a hit-and-run accident, said through his agent Gary Uberstine that he will be filing a police report about the ring and notified eBay that the person selling the ring – which is going for $19,499 – was not authorized to do so, according to the Boston Herald.

 


Uberstine said that his client's departure from the team didn't cause the linebacker to post the ring for sale.

Jack Andrade of Boston,com wrote that it was wishful thinking by the seller to try to get nearly $20,000 for a non-Super Bowl ring.

"Why did the Patriots even get rings in a season they didn’t win the Super Bowl? That's not all that different from hanging a banner celebrating an AFC championship game loss or a 16-0 regular season," said Andrade.

"And who is really going to shell out close to $20,000 for a non-Super Bowl ring with Spikes' name on it?'' said Andrade. "Spikes' certificate of appraisal says the ring is valued at $18,000."

The Patriots cut Spikes, 27, on June 8 after Massachusetts State Police confirmed that a Mercedes-Benz owned by the football player was found abandoned on Interstate 495 and was probably involved in a hit-and-run accident that hospitalized three people, according to the Boston Globe.

The Spikes' vehicle was left in the median of I-495 in Foxborough, authorities told the Globe. While Mercedes roadside assistance told state police the driver reported striking a deer, authorities were investigating an accident in which the occupants of a Nissan Murano said they were struck from behind.

A 51-year-old man, 32-year-old woman and 12-year-old boy from Billerica, Massachusetts, all sustained minor injuries in the accident.

On Friday, Massachusetts State Police charged Spikes for leaving the scene of a personal injury crash, operating a motor vehicle negligently to endanger, speeding, and failure to stay within marked lanes, reported Boston.com.
