Some horrible, soulless, scumbag broke into the L.A. home of 1985 Chicago Bears wide receiver Willie Gault and stole his Super Bowl ring ... TMZ has learned. 

Law enforcement sources tell us ... cops raced over to Gault's home after receiving a call Wednesday night about jewelry that had been taken from the home in an apparent burglary.

We're told more than $100,000 in jewelry is missing from the home -- and Gault's rep tells us one of the missing items is Gault's prized '85 Super Bowl ring ... which famously boasts 40 diamonds, including a half-carat diamond in the center surrounded by 13 smaller diamonds.

Sources tell TMZ ... detectives are on the case and an LAPD investigation is currently underway.

Meanwhile, the Gaults are urging friends to keep an eye out for the ring at nearby pawn shops and on eBay.

Hmmm wonder if he's going broke? I would be checking his finances. Why do these people not keep these things in a safe place? Why no security system? I will never understand having that much jewellery lying about and no protection for the premises. SMH

Oh your ring was stolen? Look into a company called Signalife (SGN) then changed to Hearttronics that Willie was involved in. Duped me and hundreds of other investors out of money on buying their stock. Total pump and dump scheme that Willie was involved in. Now there is a class action suit

Why the hell would he not have a safe ? ANY middle class joe, myself included, can afford to have a high-end safe anchored to their home. With Willie's Money, he can afford to pour an actual valt in his home! Keeping these assets (and guns) outside of a safe is wrong

Dumb move. There is absolutely no way the thief will be able to pawn or otherwise sell this. It will be highly recognized and immediately arouse suspicion.

Hum... I guess it wasn't too bright to have $100K worth of jewelry just hanging around - Plain stupid!
