Embarrassing Typo Discovered on Chiefs' $40,000 Super Bowl Rings


Editor’s Note: Our readers responded strongly to this story when it originally ran; we’re reposting it here in case you missed it.

When it comes to matters directly related to football, there’s virtually nothing you can criticize the Kansas Chiefs for.

(Off-field issues — both serious and not-so-serious — are a different matter for the Chiefs.)

The Chiefs, spearheaded by the 1-2-2.5 punch of quarterback Patrick Mahomes, head coach Andy Reid and aging star tight end Travis Kelce, have seamlessly filled the dynastic void left behind by the post-Tom Brady/Bill Belichick New England Patriots.

Kansas City has won three of the past five Super Bowls, while consistently winning games by double-digits, and the team has also won the last two Super Bowls in a row.

Given the makeup of the Chiefs, there’s little reason not to peg them as favorites to win a third Super Bowl in a row — a feat not even Brady’s Patriots accomplished.

If they do win a third Super Bowl in a row, however, the team will probably inspect those Super Bowl rings a little closer after what happened with their most recent hardware.

The embarrassing typo — which somehow diminishes what the Chiefs accomplished last year — first began to circulate online thanks to an X post from WDAF-TV’s Harold R. Kuntz.

Will the Chiefs win the Super Bowl again next year?

Kuntz pointed out that within the engravings that recapped the Chiefs’ path to the Super Bowl, the ring erroneously labeled the Miami Dolphins a seventh seed.

The Fins were, in fact, a sixth seed in the playoffs.

Jostens, the company that makes the rings, included the incorrect Miami seeding in its promotional material.

(The Chiefs beat the sixth-seeded Dolphins on Jan. 13 in a 26-7 home win.)

Aside from the glaring factual error, the rings are otherwise a grandeur of spectacle.

According to WDAF, the 14.8-carat rings include 529 diamonds and 38 rubies. The rings also include the scores of all the playoff games leading up to and through the Super Bowl (and that’s where the error is). The rings also come in at a tidy $40,000.

Given all that jewelry and price tag, it wasn’t known if or how Jostens would fix the typo.

Factual error or not, the Chiefs will look to begin yet another title defense campaign when they host the remodeled Baltimore Ravens on Sept. 5.

A Note from Our Deputy Managing Editor:


“We don’t even know if an election will be held in 2024.” Those 12 words have been stuck in my head since I first read them. 


Former Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn recently made that comment to Floyd Brown, founder of The Western Journal. 


And if the leftists and the elites get their way, that’s exactly what will happen — no real election, no real choice for the Electoral College, and no real say for the American people. 


The Western Journal is fighting to keep that from happening, but we can’t do it alone.


We work tirelessly to expose the lying leftist media and the corrupt America-hating elites.


But Big Tech’s stranglehold is now so tight that without help from you, we will not be able to continue the fight. 


The 2024 election is literally the most important election for every living American. We have to unite and fight for our country, otherwise we will lose it. And if we lose the America we love in 2024, we’ll lose it for good. Can we count on you to help? 


With you we will be able to field journalists, do more investigative work, expose more corruption, and get desperately needed truth to millions of Americans. 


We can do this only with your help. Please don’t wait one minute. Donate right now.


Thank you for reading,

Josh Manning
