Did they really give 1,908 of THOSE rings out? There had to have been a lesser version given out to the majority of those 1,908 people right? Otherwise you are looking at roughly $135 million spent on rings.


Actually Crane Kenney specifically said that a bunch of those were actually pins. 1908 was the total number "pieces of jewelry" that they ordered from Jostens.

Yep - got one at the game on Wednesday night. The banner measures 60" x 26" and is made of very light material. There are grommets on the left side of the banner, so the banner can be hung on a flag pole. The Mastercard logo is on the upper right of the banner and is a few inches wide.

Hopefully I can get the replica World Series trophy at the game tomorrow!

Got the ridiculously huge paperweight version of the ring as a gift for my new job the other day. It's pretty nuts.

Is it pretty sweet? Looking at getting this. Also did it really take 6-8 weeks to receive?

It was given to me, so I don't know the delivery time, and it was picked up, I believe, at the Cubs' store back at Wrigley.

The quality is surprisingly good. It's really heavy and the detail is pretty impressive.

Got a photo of it? The Jostens site did a bang up job of using stock images so there's no size scale of it on the site.

it'd be pretty amazing if they needed multiple people to run social media accounts.

Its best not to have multiple people running one organization's social media account.

Then you end up with a Anthony Weiner-type situation
