The son of a former Green Bay Packer says he was heartbroken after losing his father’s Super Bowl II ring and is offering a $ 5,000 reward for his return.
Mike Kostelnik told the Green Bay Press-Gazette that he believed he had lost the ring belonging to his father, Ron Kostelnik’s former lawyer, last weekend when he and his family went to visit his daughter at Indiana University and take another daughter on a tour of the University of Miami in Ohio.

Ron Kostelnik played for the Packers for eight seasons from 1961 to 1968 and helped the team win five NFL championships and the first two Super Bowls. He ended his career playing a season for the Baltimore Colts in 1969 and was inducted into the Packers Hall of Fame in 1989. He died of a heart attack in 1993 at the age of 53.
“This is the ring my father wore,” he said. “A lot of things he went through in his life after football were in this ring. It’s a ring I wore when I was building my business. So all the energy and the problems that come up are in this ring. I felt that it gives me a lot of strength in some very difficult times. “
