A Mississippi couple purchased a 2014 High School football championship from a local pawn shop, with the intension of returning it to the rightful owner.
The couple went public with the story so that others could help them return the ring to the original recipient of the championship ring.
Winford Moody said the couple was at a local pawn shop when they spotted the championship ring and purchased it, wanting to return it to the football player. The pawnshop claimed that someone else had previously found the ring and sold it to the pawn shop.
The championship ring is made of non gold and imitation diamonds, but probably has tremendous sentimental value to the original owner.
“We feel like this ring is valuable to (someone else),” Moody said.
The championship ring is from the 2014 football season of the Laurel High School Golden Tornadoes. Because the ring contains a jersey number, the couple believes the ring belongs to Laurel High School student Malik Tarrell, a running back for the football team.
If you have any information, please contact Winford Moody. His phone number is 601-513-9527.
Please remember, I purchase championship rings, just ones that are not lost or missing. Please let me know if you have one or more to sell.
