Report: Ray Guy auctions off title rings
Former All-Pro punter Ray Guy, under orders from a bankruptcy judge, auctioned off three Super Bowl rings he won with the Oakland and Los Angeles Raiders, The Augusta Chronicle reported Wednesday.
Guy, 61, filed for bankruptcy earlier this year, prompting the judge's order to auction off the championship rings.
"I don't want to talk about it," Guy told The Chronicle last week. "I'm not trying to be hateful, but sometimes you've got to do what you've got to do."
The diamond-encrusted rings — tokens of the Raiders' Super Bowl victories in 1977, 1981 and 1984 — fetched $96,216 at a Los Angeles-based auction house Tuesday night, according to the report.
Guy was drafted by the Raiders in the first round of the 1973 draft. The Georgia native was named to the Pro Bowl seven times in 14 NFL seasons, all as a member of the Raiders. He was named to the NFL's 75th Anniversary All-Time Team in 1994.
The former Southern Mississippi standout took a job with his alma mater in 2007, managing and directing the daily operations of the athletic department's alumni association, according to The Chronicle.
