NEW YORK (WFAN) – At the end of last week, NFL Hall of Famer Lawrence Taylor’s Super Bowl XXV ring was sold for an ungodly price of $230,401.
But who was the man (or woman) behind the acquisition of this prized piece of jewelry?
Nobody knew — and they still don’t for sure — but now there are some clues as to who made the purchase.
And here’s a hint: he’s still winning!
According to FoxSports.com’s Jay Glazer, Taylor and Mark Lepselter, his agent, were notified on Wednesday night that the winning bidder for the 10-time Pro Bowler’s ring was — yep, you guessed it — Charlie Sheen!
Lepselter confirmed to Glazer that he was told that the controversial actor was the winning bidder, but the agent is still trying to confirm it with Sheen’s representatives.
The former “Major League” and “Two and a Half Men” star was famously known for once owning the ball that went through Red Sox first baseman Bill Buckner’s legs in Game 6 of the 1986 World Series.
The ring’s estimated value was initially believed to be $75,000-$100,000.
Is there anything that Sheen doesn’t do? If this is true, you have to at least appreciate his sports fandom. Sound off with your thoughts and comments below…
