Speak Out: Could You Sell A Championship Ring?

Recent Craiglist ad offers a Gamecocks National Championship ring for sale.

Speak Out: Could You Sell A Championship Ring?

A recent ad on Craiglist was offering a piece of sports history.

WIS reported that someone was listing a South Carolina baseball National Championship ring for sale.

The asking price? $5,000.

The ring would have belonged to a Gamecock player or coach from the 2011 College World Series-winning team.

The ad has since been taken down, but it got me to wondering: If you had a Championship ring, could you bear to part with it?

Sports memorabilia is big business. In 1998, Mark McGwire's 70th home run ball went for $3 million.

If you had a piece of sports history, would you sell it? Or hold on to it?

Also, what items of sports history would you most like to own?
