$1 Million in Fake Super Bowl Rings Seized at the Philly Airport!

How crazy is this!?  The Eagles players better have their rings appraised asap to make sure that their rings are real.  What if it's like Oceans 8 and all the rings the players got, are actually fake!?  

Here are the details from the official release:

CBP officers seized one such shipment of 108 Super Bowl rings, June 29, that if authentic, had an MSRP of $1,080,000.  The rings represented many Super Bowl champions, including the Eagles.

The express consignment parcel arrived June 18 from Hong Kong manifested as alloy rings.  CBP officers noted the poor craftsmanship and detained the rings to verify authenticity with the National Football League, the trademark holder.  The NFL confirmed the rings as fakes.

"Customs and Border Protection officers are like offensive linemen in that both are on the frontline and work hard to protect something important.  CBP officers intercept counterfeit products at our nation’s Ports of Entry before they could harm U.S. consumers or businesses,” said Casey Durst, CBP Director of Field Operations in Baltimore.  "We will remain vigilant and we will continue to advance our detection capabilities in order to secure our homeland and keep our communities safe and our economy prosperous."
