Chiefs Super Bowl ring accidentally takes a massive shot at the Dolphins

Yesterday, the Kansas City Chiefs presented players, executives, and team personnel with championship rings for the Chiefs title defense in Super Bowl LVIII.

Full of glitz and glamor, Super Bowl rings are some of the most expensive mementos in all of professional sports. Paying homage to multiple interesting facts throughout last season and into the postseason, there is a little nod to just about everything from the 2022-2023 NFL Season, such as: 16 rubies for the 16 division titles won by KC, 19 diamonds for being the first team in 19 years to win back-to-back Super Bowls and 58 diamonds in the ring top to pay tribute to Super Bowl LVIII and so many more neat placements and numbers to dedicate the championship season. 

However, there is one key fact that seems to be a grave mistake made by Jostens, the NFL's official partner that makes the championship rings every year. Under the ring top, there is the final score against each opponent as well as the team and playoff seeding of that team.

While this has been business as usual for championship rings for many years now, the Chiefs and/or Jostens mistakenly had the Miami Dolphins as the No. 7 seed when in reality the Fins were the No. 6 seed in last year's playoffs. The Chiefs were the No. 3 seed in the playoffs and that's why they were playing the Dolphins in the Wild Card round, as they were the 6th seed.

As we know, the Chiefs won that game in frigid temperatures and went on to advance to their fourth Super Bowl in five years and win their third title in five years. That's why Patrick Mahomes, Andy Reid, and several other players were rewarded with their third Super Bowl ring.

For most, this is a small error and probably makes these rings that much more valuable on the resale market, but you can't help but feel sick to your stomach when each error-filled memento costs $40,000+ apiece.
