If you ever wanted to own a piece of Ohio State football history, now is your chance. The 2008 Big Ten championship ring once belonging to former Buckeyes quarterback Terrelle Pryor is now available on auction site ebay to the highest bidder. The ring, of course, was one of the items sold in exchange for tattoos that landed Ohio State on a postseason ban in 2012, Urban Meyer’s first season on the job.
This particular ring, which has Pryor’s name engraved on it and comes with a certificate of authenticity, has exchanged hands a couple of times already as the seller notes. The ring was acquired by Edward Rife, who owns the tattoo shop Pryor and other Ohio State players received tattoos in the middle of the Buckeyes scandal that also led to the exit of former head coach Jim Tressel. Rife sold the ring on ebay for over $18,000 earlier in the year to the current seller.
As of this posting, the ring’s purchase price is $16,499 and the seller is accepting the best offer. How much would you offer?
