The Chicago Cubs handing out 1,908 World Series rings and pieces of championship jewelry to members of their organization, but there’s a catch.
FOX’s Jeff Monosso has the details:
In an effort to make sure that the Cub’s generosity isn’t abused, the team has reportedly asked everyone in the organization to sign an agreement saying they’d sell the rings back to the Cubs for $1, instead of selling them anywhere else for a profit.
Though team spokesman Julian Green tells the Chicago Tribune that the agreement doesn’t prevent recipients from giving the rings to family members or friends and that the purpose of the deal is so the rings don’t end up on Ebay, which would reduce the value of one of the most coveted rings in sports.
The agreement also doesn’t apply to Cubs players and coaches.
