  1. The rarest of rare memorabilia items sold at an auction on Sunday, as someone pocketed a Tom Brady "friends and family" Super Bowl ring for a cool $344,927.

    The ring was sold by Goldin Auctions, according to Darren Rovell of ESPN, and both the buyer and seller are anonymous.

    Despite having won five Super Bowls with Bill Belichick and Tom Brady, it has been rare for Patriots Super Bowl rings to pop up on the open market. And this is the first ever ring tied to Brady that has surfaced since the quarterback started winning enough Super Bowls to fill up a full hand and force the Patriots to alter their stadium setup to accommodate their banners.

    "This is the first Brady award that has ever come to market," Goldin said back in January when it was announced the ring would be sold. "He never lets things go and nobody from his inner circle has ever given up something like this."

  2. So as someone outside of the whole 'Murican sports world and such, is this considered - respectable? And common?

    I can't imagine Lewis Hamilton selling his driver's championship trophy in an auction, maybe for charity but even then it comes off as kinda disrespectful to the trophy you won.

    Or is the whole 'Friends and Family' a charity program?

    Lots of digits for sure.
