A shipment of counterfeit NFL championship rings from China have been discovered at Tampa International Airport.
 
The rings have an estimated value of $300,000, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection.
 
The NFL apparently isn’t impressed with the counterfeiter’s handiwork. U.S. Customs and Border Protection said NFL representatives said the rings were a “poor attempt to duplicate Super Bowl images and hand tags.”
 
U.S. Customs said the shipment was from China.
