Just curioius. I have two class rings I never wear. I don't think I'd sell them, but if the price was right, I'd have to consider.

One was made in 1980, the other 1984 FWIW.

With the commercials on TV and the ads in newspapers now, it would seem like I could get a decent amount.

Any ideas?

Anyone sell their class rings since this has started?

I've thought about it, curious to hear answers.

no, as i said, i probably wouldn't sell them unless the price was higher than i expect. the money would go to a few household repairs that are on hold for now. but its not like i need the $50.

My brother manages a pawn shop. They give only the weight of the gold which depends on the ring....

I don't think you'll even get $50.
I wasn't born with nearly enough middle fingers.

Wouldn't you get more from a jeweler? No one would want to buy my old class ring for its sentimentality, though I did read at one site that if you are going to sell, its not a bad idea to contact class members to see if they have interest. Someone might have lost theirs.

But doing such things as passing under the eaves of houses, you still get wet. When you are resolved from the beginning, you will not be perplexed, though you still get the same soaking. This understanding extends to all things." ~ Hagakure: The Way of the Samurai

I must have missed this. What's the deal here? Selling class rings big business now?

Team is often the voice of reason. How did you ever get a bad dude rep? Actually, I probably don't want to know.

Gold is up over $900/ounce. Selling a class ring could net some serious coin if it has enough gold in it...

I doubt you will get more than $10 or $20. My sister recently brought a pair of 1/3 karat diamond earings that her ex-husband gave her into a pawn shop, as she was curious what they would fetch. Guy offered her $50. She lol'd and kept them.

I'm right there with you MP. Here's a thread from a month ago where I said that he was nothing special last year. I would have rather had E.Graham, R.Grant, or J.Fargas than Portis.

I sell all my scrap gold to a dealer, they give the best rate compared to a jeweler and will pay cash and actually send more after refining. The company name is Doral. I have a local rep and it seems to be a good company.

I think I'm the evil twin. There's probably a really good version of me running around somewhere.

People used to complain that I started too many threads

It's easy to say I'm making the arguments because I'm a Jets fan, but it just so happens that the statistical arguments I'd make anyway happen to fall on the side of the Jets this year.
