    I had a "Facebook Memory" the other day reminding me of a post I made of the Raul Casanova 2005 World Series Ring Auction back in 2010 and really made me re-think my desire of acquiring one of these rings.

    The 14-karat yellow gold with a 14-karat white gold insert and a White Sox logo crest on a black onyx stone. There are 95 brilliant diamonds of various sizes, equaling over two karats was given out to 38 White Sox players who played a role on the Sox's path to the 2005 World Series title. A total of 438 were given to various members of the organization. The original appraisal was $7,950.

    Players:
    Raul Casanova - 12/17/2010 - Winning Bid: $15,692.13 - Price Realized - $18,830.56 - 13 Bids

    Willie Harris - 4/21/2016 - Winning Bid: $21,600 - Price Realized - $? - 19 bids

    Pedro Lopez - 9/17/2016 - Winning Bid: $17,000 -Price Realized -$19,550 - 8 bids . This article has the final price and also talks about Minoso's items that were up for auction. I should've picked up the Minoso Gold Glove awards based on final listing price. I wonder if Minnie was buried with his ring.

    Coaches:

    Tommy Thompson - 5/24/2007 - Winning Bid: $28,100 - ?? bids

    Player Development:

    Moose Skowron - ?/??/2013 - Winning Bid: $? - Original asking price was $24,999 but the auction ended with a bunch of declined offers. I believe my max offer was $14,000

    Jorge Oquendo - 12/7/2014 - Winning Bid: ? - Price Realized - $16,002 - 12 bids

    There's also that time a bum broke into KW's house and took his ring.

    What's the difference between winning bid and price realized?

    Willie Harris already sold his WS ring? Sad times.

    Auction house surcharge. Apparently it's usually around 25% of the final bid. What's weird about that Lopez one is that it was on eBay, but was held offsite.

    And the other 2 guys I could understand why they sold it. If no one knows you were even on that team why bother keeping it, especially if you played in like 5 games in the regular season. Harris must need the money.

    That Minnie Minoso auction had some strange items.

    Here's an autographed Jim Rivera Mitchell and Ness Jersey that sold for $50 That Jersey alone costs $250, and they changed it to number 7. The didn't bother to do anything with the cursive stitching that says "Nellie Fox" at bottom however.

    I debated being you and cheeses but settle for the non-lefty, never Trumper, since they have that "miss me yet?" and "troll" look on their faces.

    This is funny because just last night I brought up the fact that even the last guy sitting on the end of the bench gets a ring if he's on a good team. Willie Harris was the example I used.

    I was talking with my wife about our daughter's bowling team. She's not the best but she's not the worst either. But overall the team is really, really good. Varsity and JV both. They are undefeated in regular season matches and haven't placed any lower than 2nd in the tournaments they've participated in this year.

    Willie Harris was far form the last guy on the bench the whole year.

    Eh, he pretty much was. Of the position players on the team all year, only Widger had less games played and he had more ABs. He was 3rd on the totem pole of bench players behind Timo & Ozuna.

    He was certainly one of the last guys on the bench. He had fewer PA's than Chris Widger. Most of the guys that had less PAs were either late season callups like Brian Anderson, hurt like Frank, or traded mid-season like Blum.

    Pablo Ozuna and Timo Perez were used more.
