Here’s an example reason why one shouldn’t sell or pawn a championship ring if they want to maintain their privacy:


Kentucky Wildcats 2012 Championship ring


A Kentucky pawnshop listed, and then quickly sold a player’s championship ring from the 2012 National Championship team on eBay.

Top Dollar Pawn had put up the championship ring. According to them, it is an ‘actual player ring’. The ring was listed for $4,999.95. It’s not clear whose championship ring it is, though the pawnshop said they would disclose the player’s name to interested potential buyers.

According to the listing:

Authentic player worn 2012 UK national champions box set. Purchased this from the actual player. Out of respect and privacy I have covered the name of the player. If you are interested, I will reveal the player name through eBay messages. I have documentation proving the actual player sold this ring. The ring is stainless steel. This is the real deal, one of 15 player rings.


The Kentucky Wildcat 2012 team is considered one of the best college basketball teams of all times. That team compiled a 38-2 record, and avenged their loss to Indiana by double-digits in the NCAA Tournament and then moved on to beat eventual runner-up Kansas twice on neutral courts.

Given the attachment that many Kentucky fans have towards the basketball program, it’s no surprise that the championship ring was sold very quickly.

While the original owner possibly escaped unnamed for now, it’s conceivable that the championship ring could wind up at a major auction house where their name will be outed for all to see.
