The Twelfth Day of Cardinal Crapmas

Like the 2011 Cardinals season, let’s end the Twelve Days of Cardinal Crapmas with a ring:

That’s an official 2004 National League Champions ring – a player’s ring no less.

So why is this considered a crap gift, despite the eBay buy-it-now price of $15,000?

A ruby logo bird is offset by a sea of real diamonds on the face, ringed by the words “National League Champions Cardinals.” Recipient’s surname “Porter” appears on left shank above another team logo.

Somebody needs some money! Anyone remember the Colin Porter era? Don’t worry, Google doesn’t either. This is literally all they’ve got:
colinporterUnless you’re a rich fuck with too much money on your hands, or you really feel sorry for Colin Porter, there’s no need to buy this. If you’re going to spend $15,000 on a Cardinal ring, save a little more and buy Larry Bigbie’s ’06 ring when he’s inevitably homeless.
