Winnipeg Blue Bombers Unveil 108th Grey Cup Championship Rings

WINNIPEG, MB., May 29, 2022 - The Winnipeg Blue Bombers are proud to unveil the 2021 Grey Cup championship rings made by Canadian jeweller Baron Championship Rings.

The club's iconic 'W' logo sits atop the Grey Cup on the top of the ring surrounded by a 10K yellow gold halo engraved with "Grey Cup Champions". The bottom section of the Grey Cup includes 33 diamonds to represent the points scored by the club in the 33-25 overtime victory over the Hamilton Tiger-Cats. Placed above the wrapping on both edges of the Grey Cup are "108" to signify the 108th Grey Cup and "Winnipeg".

The outer edge of the face is lined with a total  of 12 sapphire stones representing the organization's total championship wins and is complemented by the title of 'Blue Bombers' and 'Back-to-back'.

Both shoulders of the ring feature intricate details, with one shoulder displaying the player's name, position and number in diamonds over a field background, while the opposite side features the most unique and detailed etching of a real photo of fans taken during the 2021 season, framed by the IG Field arches, as a salute to the CFL?s loudest fans.

The 2021 season record is etched on the outer shank of the ring. Finally, the ring is finished with an engraved personalized message unique to each player on the inside of the ring and with the final score of the 108th Grey Cup etched above "FIFO" and "For The W".

Baron Championship Rings - the same company that helped design and make the 2019 Grey Cup rings for the club - created the rings with the help of a design committee that included linebacker Adam Bighill, receiver Nic Demski, defensive end Willie Jefferson and Rheanne Marcoux, the Blue Bombers Director of Creative & Content.

An extensive collection of ring-inspired merchandise is available for purchase including replica rings, pendants and more at www.bluebombersring.com. Season ticket members pick up their replica rings today from 2-6 pm during Fan Fest at IG Field or anytime during regular Bomber Store hours.

The pendants and the fan renown ring will do very well. The ring was something I had asked the bombers front office about. The replica rings are very nice, but far to big to wear everyday.

I think the bomber and Baron have done an excellent job.

Wow, I didn't think it would be possible to outdo the '19 rings, but these ones are incredible.  I really like the yellow gold.  And the laser-etch details are stunning.

The players are going to love this.

And for some reason it never clicked for me that the '21 was won with 33 points (again).  What strange luck.  Another reason they should have kept 33.  Should have made a big deal about this.

For the threepeat I want the blue W made up of dozens of small blue sapphires, even if it makes the W oversized and slightly off-colored.

The replica ring is awesome! Thanks to the team for this very nice and classy gesture of recognition for the STH's.  I have attached a picture what it looks like with my other replica BB GC rings.

Yes the replica ring is actually quite impressive. Sure the diamonds don?t sparkle the same as the real thing but I am very impressed. A really nice replica. Another nice touch by the Bombers for the fans.

And the whole fan fest was very well done for the kids. Hats off to the Bombers.

Not to mention the rings have been awarded for more than 60 years...which also makes them tradition.

Tacky, gaudy AWESOME!

They are supposed to be larger than life and outrageous.  They are supposed to be something you really wouldn't / couldn't wear all the time.

Don't compare it to a ring you'd buy at People's: compare it to the other GC rings over the years from other teams.  I think WFC has been nailing these designs.

The 2019 ring didn't have much to it.

This one looks pretty incredible, imo.

Someone posted a picture of the display case they put thier ring in... they used the Milt Stegal display we got after IGF opened with the old turf in it, saying

Tatum Lee@TatumLee19
So instead of ordering a case I will utilize one instead and let @MiltStegallTSN
 keep an eye on it for me

Ummm... that's just cruel... poor Milt never got a ring... and now you're going to make him "keep an eye on" yours?

I have no idea what you mean....

I posted a humourous tweet that I made about the irony of making "Milt" watch over a GC ring (which he never had the opportunity to win), and then I was shocked/amused when the actual Milt Stegall "liked" the tweet.

Why do I need to "read the room, man"?

Pretend that I'm not that smart and explain it to me... (you seem to be able to do the former every post I make)

Went to get my rings this afternoon. Got home with my package and opened it up and there was 4 rings, and a deluxe fan ring top pendant. Are they also handing out pendants?
