I found mine in a drawer today.

I bought an Ozzie Plan just so I could attend the game where they gave these out. I came to the park like 3-4 hours early to ensure I got one.

Of course I still have it. I have that, and my mini-trophy, and a whole bunch of other championship stuff. I'll admit the ring is in a box at home, but the mini-trophy is on my desk at work. It makes me smile, even in bad seasons like this one.

I have mine. Thank goodness my friend had a friend in line that let us cut...the line was ridiculous that day.

Same. Mine is on my pinkie as I write this post.

I wore it to my 2-year high school reunion.

Sold my ring and my mini trophy on ebay for $450. Craziness. I was very happy when they gave season ticketholders a bit of a larger replica trophy later on. I'm hanging on to that.

I had one, but then I was informed that 2005 no longer matter and KW and OG suck, so I threw it away...

Yup, Mrs. Hendu and I have them in a box somewhere.

I had mine surgically attached to my body. So, yes, I still have mine.

I have that, as well as other 2005 stuff. My championship hat. My Sports Illustrated with Scotty Pods walk off on the cover. The ring gets worn on a necklace from time to time.

I'd wear it more often; but my wife gets annoyed when I say, "MY PRECIOUS" when I hold it.

I have all that stuff in the original box of swag the Sox sent me at the end of the season. I never made it into the games early enough to get the stuff (except the magnet schedule, which must be printed in much smaller quantities), but I was told by my rep that I'd get it all at the end of the season anyway.

Mine is still in the original wrapping. Never opened it.

Holy crap! That's a lot of money for something that was probably mass produced for 3% of that! :o:

I wasn't there, as I had to work, but I still have the trophy gift they gave to season ticket holders that sits on my office desk here at home. It is nowhere near as great as Henry's trophy, but what is?

Yep, still have mine. Had to skip school but it was worth it, it's not like I haven't skipped school for less important reasons :wink:. I didn't get to the game early enough to get the replica trophy, but my father eventually got one.

I've got mine and it's still in its original packaging. Since the Sox opened up as the Sunday night Game of the Week in 2006, I was able to use my second Personal Day for Ring Day. My friend, who lives much closer to the ballpark than me, got down there around 8:15a and was toward the front of the line, so we had no trouble getting the rings.

Do you think they'll give out replica BP crosstown cups at the Cubs series this year? :cool: It can be filled with tar balls!!

I like being able to read teal when the color isn't there.

I was going to ask why any White Sox fan who had one would no longer have one. Your post more effectively accomplished my intended point.

I didn't go to the game where they were given away, but I was given one. I slipped it over the bat on my Harold Baines bobblehead.

I once got to hold an actual White Sox World Series ring (and a couple of years earlier, an actual Yankees World Series ring as well, although I didn't feel as much reverence for it). The ring is something seriously special.

Incidentally, the Baines bobblehead you own is actually far more rare than the replica World Series ring.

Really? I guess that makes sense. I have that Baines bobblehead, too. :smile: Not that I would sell it.

I have mine still in the bag, with the card that was inside the bag. Mine is too small for me to wear but I keep it in a bag with my Sox Pride - Founding Member card with the 2005 WS champs logo on it. :D:

Makes me remember, still have it, those were good times.
I have a couple of the bulls championship replica rings too.
