While suffering through countless booze 'n Shmooze sesions in the Midwest I happened across a silent auction at a hotel where I am staying.

It's for Shriner's Children's Hospital.

What I've bid on is a 2016 World Series Chicago Cubs Ring.


How high should I go?

I won't say what I initially bid, but I will say that after matching the opening bid, I may have had a drink or two and doubled it.


No one has yet beat or even matched my bid.


Shiny bling excites me.

Really it's about how much you want to help Shriners hospital.

I once bought a deck of plain old playing cards for $150 to benefit an Apiary Club (Beekeepers)

4 dollars.

Maybe a bit more.

Was this ring donated by an actual Cubs player?

I believe so.

May have to go back downstairs and check but it had a certificate of authenticity.

They also had a Green Bay ring, but I spit on that and laughed.

If it comes in a nice box...go to $5.

I doubt it was one of the players rings.
You would be surprised how many people in the organization get rings of some kind.

Since it's for charity, go for it. It would make a nice tax deduction and you can always re-donate it. However, no more bidding and drinking. Go call your wife. I'm sure she will have pearls of wisdom for your situation.

Don't care if it's from the "spit boy" in the dugouts.

A Cubbies ring.

If I get it will just give it to my mother.

She's a die-hard fan and she's had a rough year.

High roller I see.


With things like that it's all about the sentimental value.

My dad won a racing experience package once. It had zero value for any of us, but my cousin was over the moon when he got it for Christmas, and that's what it was all about.

It's fun, but sadly, I won't be here for the final bid. I just hope my obnoxious first and second bids silenced anyone else.

My flight leaves tomorrow and the silent auction ends next week.

I like the vacations.
Once won a week vacation in an amazing house on St. Johns for practically nothing for some charity for sick kids or something.
