For the die-hard Sox fan, you can have your very own 2004 World Series championship ring. A former employee of the Boston Red Sox front office is selling his ring on ebay. The starting bid is $100,000 and the Buy It Now price is $500k. That’s a hell of a bonus for a front office employee. We’re guessing it’s not being sold by one of the head honchos who make millions a year.
The seller says that he is not a big Red Sox fan and he’d rather have the money to pay off some student loans and set up a college fund for his kids.
Many will be angered to hear someone is selling off a piece of the Red Sox history and I do not wish to hear from the thousands of fans who think I am doing something wrong, when I am simply doing the right thing by my family.
We gotta say that this sounds a lot more reasonable than the guy who will pony up six figures for a ring valued at around $16k. Unless you’re Stephen King and you got money to burn.
As of press time, there are no bids and the auction ends on Friday.
