Dozens of fans sought the diamond-encrusted piece of National Football League history, which commemorates the Patriots' 34-28 come-from-behind victory over the Atlanta Falcons in Houston on February 5, 2017.

Offered at a starting bid of $75,000, the 5.1-carat ring ultimately sold for $1.025 million, following 35 total bids over 12 days.

The Patriots' win over Atlanta has been called the greatest comeback in Super Bowl history.

In addition to the ring, the victor receives a personal visit with Kraft in his Gillette Stadium office. "I've been thinking about it for weeks".
