Sometimes what goes around, really does come around.
Those who give to charity don’t usually expect the gift to be repaid. Sometimes, though, kharma takes over.
Larry Grantham, co-captain of the 1969 New York Jets faced mounting medical bills in his fight against throat cancer. He reluctantly decided to sell his most valuable possession–the Super Bowl ring he earned that historic season.
Grantham consigned it to American Memorabilia, which featured it in a catalog distributed during this year’s Super Bowl experience card show. Bidding had already begun when a charity Grantham had befriended stepped up.
The ending of what began as a sad tale turns out to be a happy one according to the latest story at NJ.com.
