Talk About Selling Out

A member of the 2007 Georgetown Men’s basketball team just sold his Final Four ring on Ebay.

Vox Populi mentions that the Ebay listing guarantees the ring is 100% authentic, made of solid 10-carat gold, and all for the low-low price of … $1,450.

The owner of the ring has chosen to remain anonymous, but for how long? Once that piece of flashy jewelry is received on the buyer’s end, all anonymity will cease since the authenticity guarantee also ensures that the player’s name and uniform number appear on the ring itself.

Hat tip to Vox Populi for the story and Casual Hoya for originally posting about the ring sale earlier last week.

  1. Well, I agree that it is sad but maybe the guy needs money. Not all players go onto the NBA for millions.

  2. So you’re taking the word of an Ebay seller that’s it’s authentic?
