The One Bling

Back in 1994, I spent the summer selling tickets for the Montreal Impact. Summer turned into fall as the Impact kept winning games…including an unlikely championship at Claude Robillard Stadium.

Two weeks after the win, I closed the books and focused on school.

Two months after that (or so), I received a team ring! It was huge and gaudy and inscribed with my name and position (T for Tickets, but I like to say it stood for The Goalie).

Two years after that, I sold the ring to a jewellery buyer for the gold value. I always wondered what happened to it. I scouted eBay and randomly Googled with no luck.

Twenty years later, I found it! I wouldn’t have bought it back at that price, but it’s nice to have a picture:Legendary Auctions link.
