The New England Patriots sent a valuable Super Bowl gift to Donald Trump

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady calls a play during the first half of an NFL football preseason game against the Houston Texans Saturday Aug. 19 2017 in Houston

When it comes to Super Bowl paraphernalia, President Donald Trump received a little extra from the Patriots following their fifth title.

It is a tradition for a championship sports team to present the President of the United States with a ceremonial jersey and some other trinkets when visiting the White House. And Patriots owner Robert Kraft has been very forward about his friendship with Trump. Scaramucci told Patriots Wire that he believes Trump will put the ring in the Presidential Library. Kraft gave President Trump a Super Bowl ring to say thank you for having them at the White House, for being treated so nicely, and having one of the best tours of the White House.

The NFL covers the cost of 150 rings for the Super Bowl-winning team, which includes players, coaches, staff members and team executives.

After the game, Trump unsurprisingly took to Twitter to congratulate the Super Bowl LI champions, who became the first team to visit him in the White House just two months after the epic comeback.

Though the value of the ring is unknown, what is clear is that if it exceed $350 in value, Trump won't be able to keep it. The Super Bowl LI edition of "America's Game" will debut at 9 p.m., followed at 10 p.m.by an episode of "NFL Top 10" that will count down Tom Brady's most memorable victories.

'They've been friends for years. Engraved inside the ring are the quotes "Greatest Comeback Ever" and "We Are All Patriots".

Teams get to customize their rings, but must pay for anything over the base price covered by the National Football League.
