Border officers in Missouri spotted 422 fake Super Bowl championship rings that arrived from China and were headed to Illinois earlier this month, authorities said Monday.
The rings were seized on Nov. 11 by U.S. Customs and Border Protection personnel in St. Louis. They each bore the image of the Vince Lombardi Trophy, which is awarded annually to each Super Bowl winner and is named after the legendary NFL coach.
"Counterfeit jewelry continues to flood the e-commerce market, and these rings were focused on a select group of sports collectors and their fans," said LaFonda Sutton-Burke, Director of CBP field operations in Chicago. "Our officers are well-trained to find counterfeit merchandise like these in support of CBP’s mission of protecting the American public and the American economy."
