Super Bowl Ring

Father Thomas Barcellona, pastor of Galloway Township’s Our Lady of Perpetual Help Parish, shows off his Super Bowl bling, which he received as chaplain for the 2018 Super Bowl LII Champion Philadelphia Eagles. For the past 13 years, Father Barcellona has counseled Eagles players and staff. Made of pure 10-karat white gold, the ring includes a total of 219 diamonds and 17 rare green sapphires. There are 127 diamonds on the bezel, representing the combined jersey numbers of the three players who touched the football during the Philly Special — running back Corey Clement (30), tight end Trey Burton (88) and quarterback Nick Foles (9). Inside the ring, an underdog mask is inscribed.
