Rings for Everyone!
- Imagine finding three Chicago Bulls championship rings inside a storage locker sold at auction for just $450.
That's exactly what happened to Chris Amer and his partner, Cleveland Brackett. Ends up the 10x10 storage locker they purchased last week belonged to former Cook County Board President John Stroger, who died in January 2008. Amer said he had about a minute in the locker to decide whether to bid on it.
"When I saw Todd Stroger's name on a tag for golf bag, I figured the locker had some good items inside," Amer said.
Those good items included the Bulls championship rings and several awards Stroger received, including one from U.S. President Bill Clinton.
