Spygate cameraman’s Super Bowl ring up for auction

A Super Bowl ring the Patriots gave to Matt Estrella, who launched the Spygate scandal when he was caught filming the Jets’ defensive signals in 2007, is being sold in an online auction.

Goldin Auctions is listing a Patriots Super Bowl XXXIX ring for auction, and the company says it’s the ring given to Estrella as a reward for his work for New England during the 2004 season.

The ring has faux diamonds and is neither the same size nor the same style as the ring the players received. So when we’re talking about a second-tier ring given to a guy in the video department, it may be stretching things to call this a “Super Bowl ring” at all.

Still, Goldin Auctions says the ring “ring is of a special historic nature, as it was given to Matt Estrella, who was famously the scapegoat in the videotaping ‘spygate’ affair.” If that interests you, the current bid is $5,704.

I figured they would just buy up all the video cameras on Amazon.
