Andres Torres Is Probably Not Actually Selling His Championship Ring

Giants twitter freaked out Tuesday night when @SFGiantsFans tweeted a link to GoldinAuctions.com, where former Giants outfielder Andres Torres is allegedly selling his ring from the 2010 Giants World Championship. However, according to a source close to the team, this is more likely a ring that was stolen out of Torres’ car following the 2010 season. The source does not know specifically if Torres is the one selling the ring, but says that in 2011, Torres told the Giants that his car had been broken into and his ring had been stolen, and the team had a new ring made for him. The whereabouts of the original ring have since been a mystery, and may have just shown up tonight.

No word on where the Letter of Authenticity came from, but it’s worth noting that it says “This ring has been in my possession since I received it from the Giants till the time I consigned the ring to Goldin Auctions.”  Till doesn’t seem like the kind of language you would use in an official document.

Or maybe it’s a depressing April Fools joke.

  • Bobby Evans mentioned in an interview on KNBR that Andres is selling a second ring that he had purchased when he got his original ring, and that the proceeds will go to a cancer charity.
