For the right price, you too can own your very own Super Bowl ring.

Though Lewis was not a part of the Baltimore Ravens Super Bowl XLVII team – having left the team six years prior and retired three years prior – Lewis was given a ring by Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti, who gave out rings to several team legends.
Lewis has been in dire financial straights since retiring from the NFL in 2009. He declared bankruptcy in 2012 and was forced to sell some of his most important possessions in order to pay off his debts – his honorary Super Bowl ring being one of them.
Lewis was the Ravens’ starting RB as a rookie in 2000. He finished his rookie season with 1,364 rushing yards en route to a Ravens Super Bowl win over the New York Giants in Super Bowl XXXV. Lewis recorded 27 rushes for 102 yards and a TD in that game.
Lewis is the Baltimore Ravens all-time leader in career rushing yards, rushing TDs, and total TDs. He also owns the Ravens’ single-season records for rushing yards and rushing TDs. He is 4th on the Ravens’ all-time scoring list behind only kickers. In 2003, Lewis became then only the 5th player in NFL history to record over 2,000 rushing yards in a single season. His 2,066 rushing yards were second in NFL history until Adrian Peterson passed him for the mark with 2,097 in 2012. Both Lewis and Peterson’s marks trail only Eric Dickerson’s 2,105 rushing yards in a single season for most all-time.
Lewis was named as one of the RBs in the Pro Football Hall of Fame’s 2000s All-Decade team.
