Former New England Patriots WR Josh Gordon’s Super Bowl ring is up for auction.

Not sure if this is depressing news or an excellent opportunity for Patriots fans to get a piece of the action, but, well…your most lustrous Super Bowl ring yet is now on the market, New England!

The Super Bowl LIII commemorative championship ring, secured when the Patriots topped the Rams 13-3 in a bizarro world slugfest that Jared Goff was not prepared for, is the latest casualty of Josh Gordon’s troubled past few years.

Now, YOU can have the ring Gordon won for your very own. Though he did not participate in the game, and was firmly unavailable due to a regular season suspension, he was still given the honor.

Heritage Auctions values this priceless item at $100,000, money you’ll be donating almost directly to Gordon on the oft chance you have the available cash.

Gordon played in 11 games that season for New England, by far his fullest campaign in recent memory, and caught Tom Brady’s 500th touchdown pass during his typically-interrupted tenure.

Though he posted 720 receiving yards and a trio of touchdowns, Gordon announced on Dec. 20 that he would be stepping away from NFL action for his own mental health, and the league very quickly announced that he was actually facing another indefinite ban for violating the policies of the drug treatment program.

Though he tried to come back once more in 2019, he was waived by the Patriots after a sketchy IR stint, ended up in Seattle, and was swiftly suspended for another violation.

Gordon has lost out on plenty of opportunities in the game of football, and the selling of his ring feels like an acknowledgment of both the tenor of his circumstances, and the real role he had in winning that ring.

Despite all his promise, Gordon did as much to earn that hardware as you and I.
