Seriously?

I love the Topps Diamond Giveaway, but this is a tad ridiculous. And it's already at $500.00

  3. I understand that, but I would think you would just sell the ring when you get it. Is there any guarantee on what the ring is worth?

  4. I think they are only producing a certain amount and each ring has 50 individual diamonds on it.

  5. I didn't think you could eBay something that isn't tangible, and a virtual Mantle ring isn't tangible.

  6. I believe Smed is right, and if someone alerted eBay it would get pulled down.

    And that guy has 27 diamond die cuts? How rare can these things actually be? It seems like they are everywhere...

  7. I have the Mantle ring. When I first realized I had the ring everyone wanted, it was because I heard someone had it for sale on Ebay. It was at $810. I was going to sell mine, but Ebay put a stop to selling the virtual rings. I'm going to just get my ring from Topps and see what the secondary market says about it. If it's not enough, I'll keep it.
