The History Of Sports Rings
As early as the 19th century, keepsakes started to be used as prizes in notable sports games. Originally, keepsakes ranged from pins and pocket watches. Finally, for the 1922 World Series, the New York Giants were given championship rings, and the idea has stuck ever since.
The most well-known North American championship rings are from the Super Bowl, the NBA championships, the World Series Champions, and the Stanley Cup. In each of these series, there is only one championship trophy that stays with the team. Players and officials wanted something they could take home to remember the accomplishment. And thus, the idea of individual championship rings came to be.
Rings For Everyone
By the 1930s, championship rings became a staple for the game, and over the next 30 years, the use of championship rings spread into a multitude of different sports. Fast forward to today, and rings are found in almost every sport and for all age groups.
For example, here at Ring King USA, we have made rings for the following sports teams:
