Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard’s recent filing of his statement of economic interests — the annual ethics statement required of all city/county elected officeholders — contains what have become usual disclosures of gifts and freebies: T-shirts and hats from businesses and nonprofit groups. Tickets to Pacers, Colts and Indians games, mostly using the city’s suites and ticket allotments. Complimentary memberships to Downtown’s Columbia Club and the Highland and Woodstock country clubs. (Though Ballard notes he plays golf mostly “at clubs open to the public.”)

But then there’s an item that has drawn attention from local bloggers: a “Super Bowl ring,” given by the Indianapolis Colts and valued on the form at $400.

Wait a minute. Only $400?
