  • Raiders to honor former quarterback during Week 3 of National Football League season

The Pro Football Hall of Fame and Kay® Jewelers, the official provider of the Pro Football Hall of Fame Ring of Excellence, will honor Class of 2016 member KEN STABLER at a special halftime ceremony Sunday, Sept. 24.

Stabler, represented by his daughter Kendra Stabler Moyes, will be recognized with a presentation of his Ring of Excellence when the Las Vegas Raiders take on the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday Night Football. Hall of Fame President Jim Porter will be on hand for the ceremony at Allegiant Stadium, with the game scheduled for 8:20 p.m. ET. 

Last November, the Hall revised its policy regarding the presentation of the Ring of Excellence to enshrinees elected posthumously. Previously, only living Hall of Famers received the ring; however, under the new policy, members enshrined posthumously receiving a ring are those who are survived by a spouse, an adult child or a parent.  

The Hall of Fame Ring of Excellence is one of three iconic symbols, along with the Hall of Fame Gold Jacket, created by Haggar, and the Bronzed Bust, that represent the elite status of being a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame. 

All three representations of membership in sports’ most exclusive club will be displayed during the special presentation for Raiders fans to pay tribute to the late Stabler. 

Hall of Fame Ring of Excellence

The spectacular Hall of Fame Ring of Excellence is set in 14K gold with a total diamond weight of 1.75 carats. It is much more than a beautiful piece of jewelry, however. Intricate details on the ring reflect the special significance of enshrinement.
  • The outer diamonds create a “stadium” effect surrounding the football-shaped diamond center.
  • The vibrant blue gemstone was selected both for appearance and meaning, as blue is often associated with confidence, power and integrity — all traits of these incredible, legendary football icons. 
  • Stabler’s Hall of Fame Ring of Excellence is customized to reflect his unique career. A likeness of his Bronzed Bust, along with “Quarterback” and “1970-1984” (his years in the NFL), appear on one side, while “Stabler,” the Pro Football Hall of Fame logo and “Class of 2016” are included on the other.
  • Additionally, a special arbormark (or engraving) appears on the inside of the ring — 302 — which is his Enshrinee number.
This season, the Class of 2023 and five other posthumously enshrined Hall of Famers – DERRICK THOMAS, HENRY JORDAN, VINCE LOMBARDI, REGGIE WHITE and SAM MILLS – will have their Rings of Excellence presented.
