Here is an interesting item worth bidding on: Phil Ford's ring.
Ford's 2000 Final Four ring is apparently up on eBay. Ford was an assistant coach to Bill Guthridge on the 1999-2000 North Carolina Tar Heels team. Here is the description:
This is Ford's original ring that was given to him by UNC. 100% GUARANTEED. I purchased the ring earlier this year from David Gerald Timepieces in Chapel Hill. Ford had given the ring to a good friend (Bernard) as a gift several years ago. The friend ended up consigning the ring for sale with David Gerald in 2008. I have displayed pictures of the two cards I received from David Gerald Timepieces along with the ring. One reflects the purchase (I have obscured my last name, telephone number, etc. in the picture) and the other is a thank you note from David Gerald himself which references Phil Ford.
There is a nice cubic zirconia in the center of this ring ... which looks like a chewed up piece of bubble gum.
However, if what he is saying is legit, this would be quite a keeper for a diehard UNC fan. Ford is held up to being the greatest player in North Carolina history.
This comes a few months after a 2005 Tar Heels' National Championship ring was sold for $3,600 on eBay (it is believed to have belonged to David Noel).
