Here is the offer I got from the Nats.

I'm guessing Chief's WNFF fundraiser will be looking to raise a lot more money next year. :)

The explanation of the number of stones seems a bit....suspect.

I was laughing when I saw the explanation. They really stretched on a few of them.  :mg:

No idea if they’re reputable or not.  :shrug:

I was looking at this more closely. It’s only gold plated.

Also, you can get your own name on this bad boy if you so choose. I feel like I could definitely fool someone in a bar with this. Say I’m in the front office.
That seems awfully cheap.

Just looking at that site, I saw this advice:

When making your decision, please consider that wearing a championship ring on your middle finger may be more comfortable in terms of balance.

Since it is an unwritten rule, I'm guessing it also a great way to greet Barves fans and Brian McCann as well.

I once met a guy in Madison who got a Big Ten Championship ring because he was president of the booster club the year Wisconsin won. And everyone I talked to thought it was weird he wore it. And the school actually gave him that. So I imagine no one actually wears one of these replicas.

Head of the booster club probably helped buy that championship- I’d say that the same as front office wearing one

I would think you’d wear it to a game at the ballpark, much like you’d wear a team jersey. But everyday wear? Probably not. But I guess if I’d paid $15K for something, I’d want to wear it every chance I’d get.

I'm sure there are folks who wear one, but I can't imagine doing it myself.

 As far as duality, the 1924 Washington Post headline said Nationals win, so I’ll go with that. And if they’re going to claim the logo steal with the usual Walgreens jab, at least reference the 1960s Senators.

as for the logo steal, I hear Wegmans is green with envy.

I feel a bit dirty, as I just ordered a knockoff ring for $50 just now. Coming from China, so I should get it by 2022🤪
