Huggins & Scott Auctions

A set of six Bulls championship rings owned by longtime security guard John Capps sold for a combined $255,840 at Huggins & Scott Auctions, Huggins & Scott announced Thursday night.

Individually, the 1991 ring sold for $39,360, 1992 sold for $47,970, 1993 sold for $45,510, 1996 sold for $24,600, and 1997 and 1998 sold for $49,200.

Capps started with the team at its inception as a police escort for a celebratory parade up Michigan Avenue in 1966. For decades afterwards, he became a staple as a guard and greeter outside the team's locker room at both the Chicago Stadium and United Center. He and his trademark Knagol hat made a handful of background appearances in "The Last Dance."

He passed away in 2018 at age 88.

Bidding for the rings began at $5,000 each when the auction opened earlier in October.
