Cheap Seats

Want a stadium giveaway? Why wait?

It's looking pretty iffy for the Cardinals scheduled game today against the Cubs.

So I am curious to see what will happen in all of the ebay auctions already offering the replica rings that the Redbirds will give away today to all paying customers.

There are literally dozens of the replicas already on the auction web site -- most of them selling for $90 and up each.

Are the sellers speculating that they'll get the rings? Or did someone with the Cardinals slip them a bunch of the item?

While all paying customers get a ring today, it's really irritating to see a bunch of bobblehead or statuettes being auctioned off while people who actually went to the game hoping to get the item in question are turned away.
