Lenny Dykstra to hock Mets 1986 World Series ring to raise money for debts

Recommended Posts

Cash-strapped Lenny Dykstra's latest money-grab comes with a familiar ring to it.

 

The bankrupt ex-ballplayer is auctioning off memorabilia from across his storied 12-year career - including his diamond and gold 1986 World Series championship ring.

 

The bidders are unlikely to include the nearly two dozen businesses and individuals who charge the hardnosed player known as Nails bilked them of millions of dollars.

He brought this all upon to himself, I have no sympathy for him at all. Do you really need to live in a 18 million dollar mansion? HELLO! He lived way above his means. Now he will have to learn how to live like most of us do in society.

 

Jerry Koosman is another putz, failing to pay taxes for several years and then claiming that he was ignorant because

he was raised on a small farm kind of town.

 

Sure I liked him as a player but that is about it, otherwise he is what he is now...a HAS BEEN.

Update to Harry's story: A collector from Queens, N.Y. won Lenny Dykstra's 1986 World Series ring with a successful bid of $56,762.50. Lenny Dykstra and the Mets wrapped up that title against the Red Sox in the same borough, at old Shea Stadium. Altogether, the ring and ten other items related to Dykstra brought in more than $162 Thousand.

 

When Lenny Dykstra filed for bankruptcy in July, he reported he owed more than $31 Million and had only about $50 Thousand in assets.
