Kramer to officially get ring back

Former Packers guard will receive Super Bowl I ring that was stolen 25 years ago

Jerry Kramer, a member of Vince Lombardi's World Champion Green Bay Packers teams, will be presented with his Super Bowl I ring at a special presentation at Lambeau Field at 10:30 a.m. on Tuesday. The public is invited to attend the presentation.

The ring, which was stolen 25 years ago on an airplane en route from Chicago to New York appeared in an online auction several weeks ago. Doug Allen, President and COO of Mastro Auctions, who, after learning that the ring in the company's April auction was actually stolen, pulled it from the sale and secured its safe return to Kramer.

The event will mark the end of a long search by the 70-year-old offensive lineman for this most meaningful and historic possession.

Kramer will also make a special announcement regarding his Super Bowl I replica ring which he had made to replace the stolen ring and has been wearing for the past several years. He will unveil his plans on how he will use the ring to assist retired NFL players in need.
