Charlie Sheen Reportedly Buys Lawrence Taylor's Super Bowl Ring
Fox Sports reports actor paid $230,000 for piece of Super Bowl history.
Actor Charlie Sheen was reportedly the winning bidder for a Super Bowl ring belonging to Giants' Hall of Famer Lawrence Taylor, Fox Sports Jay Glazer wrote Thursday.
Glazer reports that Taylor's agents were told that the actor paid a little more than $230,000 for the ring, which was put up for sale by Taylor's son T.J.
Sheen also owns Babe Ruth's 1927 World Series ring, Yahoo! Sports reported. Taylor was reportedly unaware that his son put the ring up for sale after the troubled former linebacker gave it to him as a gift.
Sheen offered only a "no comment" when asked via text message by "The Dan Patrick Show" if he was indeed the buyer.
Taylor, a former longterm Bergen County resident, has had numerous off-the-field problems since he retired as one of the greatest defensive players to ever take the field.
He was sentenced to six years probation last year after pleading guilty to having sex with an underage female prostitute in Rockland County, NY, in May 2010.
