  • Robert Kraft has auctioned his fifth Super Bowl ring which he won in 2017

The ring contains 283 diamonds as a tribute to New England's comeback win against Atlanta Falcons in which Kraft's side overcame a 28-3 deficit before clinching a 34-28 overtime victory in 2017.

"We came back, and we won", Kraft said when announcing the auction.

"I thought about what's going on at this time and wanted to give something of extreme value in support of our health-care workers". It sort of brought me back to our fifth Super Bowl when two minutes to go in the third quarter. "We're the greatest country in the world with the greatest people who feel a sense of team and work together during the toughest times".

New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft has six Super Bowl rings. This is perhaps the most historic championship the Patriots have and as you can imagine, it auctioned for an insane amount of money. The price jumped up nearly instantly to more than $330,000, and then surpassed $1 million with nine days left in the auction.

In addition to Kraft's ring, the winning bidder will visit the team owner himself, after being flown to New England on Kraft's private plane. Kraft has six Super Bowl rings with the team, however, as part of the All In Challenge to help support charities associated with COVID-19, Kraft made a decision to auction off one of his rings.

One inner inscriptions reads, "Greatest Comeback Ever.' Another quotes Kraft following the Patriots" first title in February of 2002, four months after the September 11 terrorist attacks: 'We Are All Patriots 2-3-02'.

The "All In Challenge" has raised over $45 million as of Friday.

The All-In Challenge, created by Fanatics founder and Kraft friend Michael Rubin, claims to be the largest digital fundraiser in history.

Other high-bidding items include a private lesson with Tiger Woods ($190,000) and 18 holes with Phil Mickelson ($120,000).
