All Six Chicago Bulls NBA Championship Rings Are Set To Be Auctioned Off

Whether you're a Michael Jordan fanatic, NBA tragic or a 'Last Dance' super-fan, there's a certain piece of memorabilia up for sale that could tickle your fancy.

All six of the Chicago Bulls' NBA championship rings will be auctioned off to one lucky (or rich) punter.

And no, these rings didn't actually belong to MJ himself - but they're still a massive part of history nonetheless.

According to TMZ Sports, the priceless rings belonged to John Capps.

Capps was the Bulls security guard at the United Center during Jordan and Co's decade of dominance in the 1990s.

It's understood Capps was a favourite among the star-studded Bulls players having worked with the team from 1966.

Capps was known for sitting directly outside the team's locker room and even featured heavily on ESPN's popular docuseries 'The Last Dance'.

And Capps, like every member of the Bulls staff during the dynasty, received a ring every time Chi-Town won an NBA Championship.

But after his passing in 2018, Capps' rings were acquired by Huggins & Scott Auctions with the money to go towards Capps' estate.

Finding a complete set of NBA Championship rings is very rare in the world of sports memorabilia and collectables, but the 1991-93 and 1996-98 rings will be sold individually with a starting price of $5,000 (AU$7,100) each.

While they're not owned by a player, owner or coach, the fact that the rings belonged to a team legend as well respected as Capps suggests the final bids could go through the roof.

The auction itself runs through to October 22.
