Future NFL Hall of Famer Tom Brady posted a meme to have fun with his latest, ‘Most Incredible’ Super Bowl ring in a Thursday ceremony.
In a twist, the Tweet showed two versions of the quarterback. Brady inserted himself into the hot “How It Started vs. How It’s Going” meme discussion. Both pictures showed him in New England Patriots uniform playing ball. The difference, however, is the second picture had Brady with a shaved head.
Then the final photo showed all of Brady’s rings as they said on his hands.
On Thursday, CBS Sports reported that the Super Bowl champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers got their Super Bowl rings. For Brady, it was his seventh championship ring.
And the big reveal seemed to bowl over the Tampa Bay quarterback. He won it with last season’s 31-9 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LV.
That final score played into the ‘Most Incredible” ring’s stellar design. The ring was encrusted with 319 diamonds, including 15 karats of white diamonds and 14 carats of yellow diamonds.
On the team’s website, Brady went on to say that this ring was by far the most incredible ring that’s ever been made. He added that it’s commemorating a very special team that came together last season.
The design also caught head coach Bruce Arians’s attention. He said he was blown away when he opened the box and was impressed by all the thought that went into the ring.

The ring has another impressive feature. The top comes off to show the team’s home field, Raymond James Stadium inside. The hand-engraved stadium picture was a feature the team wanted to make it stand apart from all other Super Bowl winners. Also shown are the Bucs’ two Super Bowl trophies, each with two red diamonds.
Buccaneers captain Lavonte David was part of the group that helped design the ring. He said the removal top to honor the home win was an easy decision.
Also impressive was the inscription. With Super Bowl being played in Tampa Bay, the Bucs were the first Super Bowl winner to play and win on their home turf.
Yahoo! Sports wrote about the ring’s value recently. Gold and Diamond Source owner Steve Weintraub appraised the ring at $35,000. However, he said that a buyer could land it in an auction for anything between $75,000 to $100,000.
Tom Brady’s collection of rings may be impressive, but he says the work he’s put into them means just as much.
“Rings are a great commemoration piece,” Brady said. “They’re not so much rings, they’re more like trophies that you wear on your finger. It’s a commemoration of all the blood, sweat and tears we put into the season.”
As a matter of fact, when he was asked what his favorite ring was – the quarterback answered the next one.
