Hard to believe a player would sell his World Series ring, but an unnamed player of the 2010 world champion San Francisco Giants did just that. Hope he put the $70,000 to good use.
This ring was made by Tiffany and Company and inspired by the New York Giants 1933 World Series ring. The ring is mostly made from white gold. The San Francisco Giants logo with round diamonds is surrounded by two more round diamonds and the words "WORLD CHAMPIONS".
One side of the ring has the year "2010" and towers from the Golden Gate Bridge. The other side of the ring has a ribbon over the World Series trophy.
Inside the band the ring has the results of the Giants victories to become champions: "SFG 3 - ATL 1 SFG 4 - PHI 2 SFG 4 - TEX 1".

The third Olympic Games, and the first held in the United States, were conducted in St. Louis, Missouri. It was not a popular Olympiad, in an unpopular place, with relatively few athletes participating. Of course, that makes 1904 Olympic memorabilia even more valuable.
