Charlie Sheen — I Did NOT Buy Lawrence Taylor’s Super Bowl Ring

Charlie Sheen tells our sources … he is NOT the mystery buyer who dropped $230k on Lawrence Taylor“s Super Bowl ring … despite widespread media reports to the contrary.

LT had gifted the Super Bowl XXV ring to his son TJ … who decided to put the ring up for auction without asking his father for permission first.  It sold for $230,401 … and LT”s agent told various media outlets he believed Sheen was the buyer.

According to Sheen … LT”s agent was wrong.

“As much as I would be honored to own such an important artifact, I had nothing to do with the acquisition” … Sheen tells us.

It”s not a crazy rumor … considering Sheen is a bigtime sports memorabilia collector who already owns Babe Ruth”s 1927 World Series ring.

No word if the REAL buyer plans to reveal his or her identity any time soon.
