Former Ravens running back Damien Berry: I did not sell my Super Bowl ring

New, comments

The former Ravens running back says his ring was sold without his knowledge.

A lot of people were surprised to learn that former Ravens running back Damien Berry would sell his 2012 Super Bowl ring.

Including Damien Berry himself.

According to the Baltimore Sun's Aaron Wilson, Berry called him to say he had no idea his Super Bowl ring was up for auction on a website run by the company Goldin Auctions. Berry told Wilson that a friend — a former friend most likely if what Berry's saying is true — handed the ring to the auction site without his consent.

Berry said he became aware of this when Ravens fans began attacking him on social media sites.

However, Wilson writes that the Goldin Auctions site has a lot of paperwork, which includes specific background checks, that validates the ring as a good sale.

"This isn't a good look, I know that, but I swear this didn't start with me," Berry told Wilson. "I have a lawyer who's working with me to try to get the ring back. I was shocked when people starting coming at me on Twitter about what's up with my Super Bowl ring. It's definitely upsetting, but everything will be all right."
