    This is quite a sad story for me. A guy with Kramer's talents today could set his grandkids up for life and keep his rings. It gives me even more respect for him in that he is willing to give up the rings to provide for them. Makes me wish I had the money to buy them and give them right back.

    I wonder if the fact they won't put him in the HOF causes him any bitterness. Maybe not bitterness but maybe he thinks If they don't think enough of me to put me in the HOF I don't really think that much of their jewelry. They are just possessions after all and he will still have the memories and the friendships and the fans, that probably means more to a guy like him anyway.

    I haven't read the story, but I'm hoping he sold it because he wanted to, not because he had to.
