Super Bowl XLVI ring worn by former New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks, now for sale. Nicks is selling the renowned piece of jewelry, which is worth an estimated $80,000, through an auction hosted by Heritage.
The ring, which is a size 15, weighs 95g and shows mild wear in its slightly damaged original wooden container. The Giants emblem and the four Lombardi Trophies won by the franchise are engraved on the ring’s diamond and blue sapphire-covered face.
The team mottoes “All In” and “Finish” are engraved on the ring’s inner band. These mottoes were instituted by former Giants head coach Tom Coughlin.
Hakeem Nicks’ career peaked in 2011 when the Giants won the Super Bowl. A first-round choice out of North Carolina in 2009, Nicks caught 76 catches for 1,192 yards and seven touchdowns in the regular season before having a fantastic postseason that drove the Giants from a 9-7 record to their second Super Bowl success in four years.
Nicks led all receivers with 10 receptions for 109 yards in Super Bowl XLVI as the Giants defeated the New England Patriots, 21-17. He had 18 receptions for 335 yards and four touchdowns during the Giants’ NFC championship run.

Nicks set a postseason record for receptions with 28 in 2011, and his 444 receiving yards and four touchdowns that year still stand. He also tied a postseason record for total touchdowns with Joe Morris and Brandon Jacobs, both running backs.
Nicks’ career was cut short by injuries, although he still managed to play for the Giants until 2013 and return for a few games in the regular season in 2015. Heritage Auctions also sold the Super Bowl ring that was given to Giants safety Chad Jones in addition to Nicks’ ring.
Nicks set a new standard for receiving efficiency in the franchise’s annals. In the Wild Card Round against the Atlanta Falcons, Nicks recorded six receptions for 115 yards and two touchdowns in the 24–2 victory.
The following week against the top-seeded 15-1 Green Bay Packers, Nicks hauled in seven catches for 165 yards and two more touchdowns, including a 37-yard Hail Mary reception at the end of the first half. After gaining 55 yards in the title game triumph over San Francisco, Nicks led all receivers with 10 catches for 109 yards in Super Bowl XLVI against the New England Patriots. This helped the New York Giants win the game 21-17.
As of 2017, Nicks’ 2011 postseason figures remain franchise records with 28 receptions for 444 yards (also most all-purpose yards) and 4 receiving touchdowns (also tied with Joe Morris and Brandon Jacobs for most overall touchdowns) (also tied with Joe Morris and Brandon Jacobs for most total touchdowns).
Along with Amani Toomer, he is the only Giant to have two games in which he scored two or more touchdowns, and his 15.86 yards per reception and 111 yards per game are both franchise records.
Nicks participated in 15 games for the Giants in 2013, and despite not scoring a touchdown, he ended the season with 896 receiving yards. As the October 29 trade deadline approached, there was talk that the New York Giants may deal him. Nothing was finalized by the deadline, thus Nicks remained a Giant until the end of the season when his contract expired and he became a free agent.
