Chris Spielman's Big Ten Championship Ring Sells for $12,000 in Auction, All Proceeds Going to Those Impacted by COVID-19

Chris Spielman continues to be a hero amidst the coronavirus pandemic.

The legendary Buckeye linebacker decided to auction off some of his own gear and memorabilia to raise money for those impacted by the COVID-19 crisis, and one particular item has already raised a hefty chunk of change.

Spielman sold his personal 1984 Big Ten championship ring this week with the auction closing at an eye-popping $12,000 – every cent of which will be donated to those affected by the coronavirus.

His goal is to raise $40,000 so that he's able to give away $1,000 for the next 40 weeks, and he's well on his way.
