Brief: CBP seizes $1m in fake Super Bowl rings

Replica Super Bowl rings go for an eye-watering $10,000 a pop, but there’s a thriving trade in cheap knock-offs selling for just $25 online.

Philadelphia Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has just intercepted more than 100 of the counterfeits, including copies of the authorized replica ring for current Super Bowl champions the Philadelphia Eagles.

The express consignment parcel arrived June 18 from Hong Kong manifested as alloy rings. CBP officers noted the poor craftsmanship and detained the rings to verify authenticity with the National Football League, the trademark holder. The NFL confirmed the rings as fakes.
