Amid internet reports that Charlie Sheen bought Lawrence Taylor’s Super Bowl ring, the actor went on the Dan Patrick Show and set the record straight saying, “As much as I would be honored to own such an important artifact… I had nothing to do with the acquisition.” The ring would have added to Sheen’s collection, who already owns Babe Ruth’s 1927 World Series ring.
The rumor first went viral when Jay Glazer of Fox Sports tweeted: “Got no idea if this is true but if is it’s hilarious. Lawrence Taylor & his agent Mark Lepselter were told last night winning bidder for LT’s Super Bowl Ring was none other than Charlie Sheen!!!”
The hall of fame linebacker has fallen under hard times, and last year was sentenced to six years probation for sexual misconduct and patronizing an underage prostitute. But It was Taylor’s son who decided to auction off the Super Bowl XXV championship ring with SCP Auctions, selling for $230,000
