If the seized rings had been real, they would’ve had “an estimated manufacturer suggested retail price of $11.7 million,” officials said.
“The seized rings were infringing on the Major League Baseball (MLB), National Football League (NFL), National Hockey League (NHL), and the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) trademarks,” according to the agency.
Troy Miller, the director of CBP’s New York field office, praised the seizure and the agency’s officers’ work.
“Every day CBP Officers protect the American public and its economy,” Miller said. “This most recent interception of counterfeit sports rings demonstrates the ongoing vigilance and commitment to the mission by our CBP Officers and Import Specialists.”
