Chiefs’ Super Bowl LVIII ring features ‘Tom & Jerry’ play diagram

Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs unveiled their extravagant new Super Bowl rings, adorned with diamonds, rubies, and a special homage to “Tom & Jerry.”

The championship ceremony took place at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, where the Chiefs gathered to commemorate their thrilling 25-22 overtime victory against the San Francisco 49ers in Las Vegas earlier this year.

Crafted with 529 diamonds and 38 rubies totaling 14.8 carats, the ring features four marquise diamonds symbolizing the franchise’s four Lombardi Trophies, with the base embellished by 19 custom-cut baguette diamonds, signifying the Chiefs’ back-to-back Super Bowl wins across 19 seasons.

A distinctive highlight of the ring is its top, which opens to reveal an inscription of the “Tom & Jerry” play—a nod to Mahomes’ game-winning 3-yard touchdown pass to Mecole Hardman in the Super Bowl. The design is based on head coach Andy Reid’s original sketch of the play.

Clark Hunt, chairman and CEO of the Chiefs, proudly displayed the team’s 2019 and 2022 Super Bowl rings, noting that this year’s version encapsulates the narrative of their triumphant season.

“This ring tells the story of last season and incorporates some really cool elements, just like last year’s ring,” Hunt remarked. “There are surprises that I can’t wait to see the players’ reactions to when they open their boxes.”

Inside each ring, recipients find a Lombardi Trophy reflecting their tenure with the Chiefs. The band interior is engraved with “United,” the team’s motto from last season, alongside scores from Kansas City’s four playoff victories and individual player signatures.

Additional intricate details include 28 diamonds symbolizing the defense holding opponents to fewer than 28 points per game, 17 miniature gold leaf confetti representing the Chiefs’ points scored in the AFC Championship Game against Baltimore, and 16 custom-cut rubies honoring the club’s 16 division titles.

One of the challenges was maintaining secrecy around the ring’s design until the unveiling ceremony, attended by 400 players, coaches, team personnel, and guests.

Linebacker Nick Bolton, eager for a glimpse, joked, “I’ve been trying to sneak a peek for about three or four days. I heard it’s bigger than last time.”

To prevent premature reveals, the rings were stored in secure boxes with a combination lock, with the code 777 revealed in a slot machine video following Hunt’s address.

Mark Donovan, team president, emphasized the anticipation of the reveal moment during the celebration dinner. “We always ensure the ring is presented at the perfect moment,” Donovan said. “It’s a real highlight of the evening.”

With mandatory minicamp completed, the Chiefs are focused on training camp and defending their back-to-back Super Bowl titles. Head coach Andy Reid reflected on the significance of the ceremony, noting, “Tonight is a celebration of hard work, but we’re already looking ahead to the new season.”

Patrick Mahomes echoed the sentiment, highlighting the team’s relentless pursuit of success. “In this league, every year demands the same hunger and mentality,” Mahomes emphasized. “We’re aiming to return for a third ring ceremony, which would be historic.”
