A member of Ohio State’s 2002 national championship team decided to put his ring on eBay. The selling price may have other team members visiting their safe deposit box.
The ring belonged to running back Lydell Ross and the winning bid was $14,001.
28 bids were recorded and the winning bidder’s ID was kept private. If the seller could have actually written a coherent sentence, the bidding may have gone higher.
Meanwhile, a member of the University of Washington’s 2001 Rose Bowl team was thrilled to get his championship ring back after losing it. Wilbur Hooks, Jr. showered his Good Samaritan with gifts.
As SportsCollectorsDaily reported earlier this summer, championship rings are big business for one sports memorabilia dealer.
