eBay Today #1 - Tampa Bay Storm replica ArenaBowl ring
We are kicking off a new feature series here at ArenaFan. We're combing through the depths of Arena Football League related items that can be found on eBay and will present them to you every so often. Our first eBay Today feature is a Tampa Bay Storm replica 1991 ArenaBowl championship ring.
This ring was given out to fans at the home opener of the 2016 season home opener against the Orlando Predators in order to commemorate 25 years since the Tampa Bay Storm won ArenaBowl V 48-42 over the Detroit Drive, their first of 5 titles. As a life-long Storm fan, I was so excited about this fan giveaway, because the first games I attended were in 1991, and cemented me as a fan of the Arena Football League. My friend Jim Robinson, the former Storm Public Relations director, snagged me one of these, and it's sitting on my desk in front of me right now.
Three players from that 1991 Tampa Bay Storm championship team are currently in the Arena Football League Hall of Fame: Jay Gruden, Stevie Thomas and Andre Bowden.
If you are a fan of the Tampa Bay Storm or Arena Football in general, this is a wonderful fan giveaway item to add to your collection.
Stay tuned for future articles in this series featuring interesting Arena Football related items that can be found on eBay.
