Fans offer to replace stolen Super Bowl ring

Posted: Updated:
GREEN BAY (AP) -- One Green Bay Packers fan is discovering the generosity of other fans after someone stole his prized "paperweight ring."
Steve Tate, of De Forest, has been a fixture at Packers games since 1998, often seen wearing his foam cheesehead with "Owner" written on it.
Press-Gazette Media reports Tate's oversized Super Bowl XLV ring was taken at a fundraiser near West Bend. He handed it to a fan like he's done hundreds time before, but never got it back.
Since then he's received two offers to replace the ring. One came from a Fox Valley automobile dealer and the other from the company that made and sold the rings -- Minnesota-based Josten's.
He says he'll take Josten's offer because they have extras.
