Did Charlie Sheen Buy Lawrence Taylor's Super Bowl Ring?
Charlie Sheen Denies Buying LT's Ring
The rumor that Charlie Sheen bought Lawrence Taylor's Super Bowl XXV ring came from a credible source; LT's agent.
LT's Super Bowl ring indeed sold at auction for $230,000, but who bought it?
Charlie Sheen told TMZ that he did not, in fact, buy former New York Giants linebacker Lawrence Taylor's Super Bowl ring:
“As much as I would be honored to own such an important artifact, I had nothing to do with the acquisition" ... Sheen tells us.
The media really wanted this rumor to be true, as both Lawrence Taylor and Charlie Sheen have run afoul of the law:
It's like Phil Spector buying O.J.'s Heisman.
Lawrence Taylor is now a registered sex offender, having paid an underage girl for sex.
Charlie Sheen, an avid sports-memorabilia collector, already owns Babe Ruth's 1927 World Series ring.
