I'd have to look again. But it is still hard to make a selection when I don't know what I am getting 10% off of.

If you mean what price you're getting the discount off of, I'm pretty sure the prices shown are what the general public will have to pay so it's $10 off of that.

EDIT: The early discount (before June 30) was $10, not 10%. For the next couple of weeks (until July 14 I think) it's $5 off.

Bumping to let everyone know that the rings are being revealed tomorrow night @ 7:30pm (not sure where/how, but this was announced on Twitter).

The team will hold an exclusive media viewing of a 2019 Grey Cup Championship ring tomorrow at 7:45 pm CT as Stretch indicated.  Should be more on this following the media event.

You will also be able to follow on bluebombers.com

Wow the final rings as shown in the Baron video
https://www.bluebombers.com/2020/08/07/the-107th-grey-cup-rings-presented-by-mid-town-ford-baron-championship-rings/

are really nice.  They did a good job.  I still would have gone with tiny tiny sapphires making the "W", but maybe that would have been too problematic.  The sapphires representing GC wins was a great idea instead.  And love the sides of the ring!  Wow!  Great job with the white/yellow gold.

If I ever saw a real one of these for sale by a player (or ebay, or whatever), I might be tempted... what do official player-won GC rings usually go for these days?  Surely they trade hands sometimes as players pass on, etc.

In case you did not see the reactions of our players when they saw the ring, take a look at the following link:

Awesome!  Love it.  All those guys deserve it.  What a team to remember.  Thanks guys, from the fans.

I didn't realize one side was made to look like "coming out of the [IGF] tunnel".  I need to take a closer look.

I just got my replica in the mail. Really nice piece and super impressed how the Bombers gave the opportunity for fans to get relatively inexpensive keepsake. Looks especially great In the display case.

Just "for example"......

Former Eskimo James Bell, who suffered a devastating spinal injury in 1987, eventually found himself in dire financial straits and sold his ring for US$5,700. Years later it was auctioned off online for $8,365.

Did it come by registered mail, or did they just throw it your mail box? My Grandson's are apparently checking the mail box a number of times per day.

Mine came via regular mail in a box roughly 9.5"x 7.5"x 7.5" (got the ring and display case).
