Masters of Design, a Cookson company, has designed the San Antonio Spurs’ 2005 NBA Championship rings.
“We worked with Masters of Design when we won the1999 and 2003 NBA Championships and we’re very pleased with not only our Championship rings, but with the entire Championship program. They instituted a program for our fans so that all Spurs’ enthusiasts were able to share in the momentous event,” said Russ Bookbinder, executive vice president of business operations for Spurs Sports & Entertainment. “And, we’re excited about our unique Championship ring design this year and an after-market program that will exceed our supporters’ expectations.”
The rings were manufactured at Masters of Design’s headquarters and manufacturing facility, located in North Attleboro, Massachusetts. The NBA Championship rings were unveiled and distributed to Spurs’ players and coaches before the 2005 season opener.
“We are extremely excited to have been chosen once again by the Spurs. We enjoyed working with the entire organization in 1999 and 2003 and know that for this Championship, we created a design as spectacular as their previous rings while representing this Championship season,” said Bob Bourbeau, director of sports and special markets division for Masters of Design.
Masters of Design has manufactured Championship rings for the Arizona Diamondbacks, the San Francisco Giants and for the three NBA Championships of the Los Angeles Lakers. Masters of Design produces custom designed products for championship teams and athletes around the world.
“What makes it exciting for Masters of Design is that each Championship ring we manufacture is unique to each organization and represents their vision and their achievements,” continued Bourbeau.
