Six months ago you could have purchased this championship ring for $100,000. Now the seller is demanding $150,000:
Talk about inflation, the asking price of a 1988 Jose Canseco A’s American League Championship ring has risen 50% in six months.
The seller is so firm in his asking price, that he’s not budging on the price by offering a “best offer” option, commonly seen for high-ticket items on ebay.
The championship ring is not even a World Series winning championship ring, it’s from the season the A’s, who were heavily favored in the series, lost to the Dodgers in five games. That World series is best remembered for the walk-off home run Kirk Gibson hit. Gibson, was barely able to walk due to an injury suffered during the NLCS.
The price for this championship ring is ludicrous, but hey, you never know, someone just might buy it and put it up on ebay down the road for $200,000.
Please remember I buy championship rings (just not at these prices). If you would like to sell your championship ring privately, please contact me.
