Former New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks, who was among the league’s best before injuries derailed his career,

is parting ways with his Super Bowl XLVI ring. TMZ Sports reports that Nicks has put his ring up

for auction through Heritage with expectations that it could fetch upwards of $80,000.

The current bid is $25,000 with three days remaining on the auction. The ring was issued to our consignor,

Nicks led all receivers in Super Bowl XLVI with 109 yards on ten catches.

A mine’s worth of diamonds and blue sapphires coat the face which features the team logo “NY” and four miniature Lombardi

It’s unclear why Nicks is auctioning off his Super Bowl ring but

TMZ Sports notes that a portion of the sale will go to charity.

A first-round pick of the Giants in the 2009 NFL draft, Nicks spent eight years in the NFL

with six of those coming with New York over two stints.
