BOSTON (AP) – One of New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft’s Super Bowl rings put up for auction to raise funds for coronavirus relief has sold for more than $1 million.

Bidding for the Super Bowl 51 ring, commemorating the Patriots comeback from a 28-3 deficit for a 34-28 overtime victory over the Atlanta Falcons, ended with a winning bid of $1,025,000, according to the All-In Challenge.

The winning bidder’s name was not disclosed.

Kraft said earlier he decided to auction the Super Bowl 51 ring because of the significance of the team’s comeback. He also said he’d bring the winning bidder to Gillette Stadium to receive the ring in person when it was safe to do so.

All of the money raised by the All-In Challenge goes directly to Feeding America, Meals On Wheels, World Central Kitchen and No Kid Hungry.

The 5.1-carat weight white gold ring features 283 diamonds surrounding the Patriots logo and five Lombardi trophies.
