Lenny the Rat

Lenny Dykstra would like to sell you his 1986 World Series ring - Big League Stew - MLB - Yahoo! Sports:
For years, Lenny Dykstra used the glare from his World Series ring to fool people into believing he was building a vast financial empire that would eventually make him the modern day equivalent of John Pierpont Morgan.
Now that Dykstra has gone from fake financial wizard to a fine pawn shop jeweler you have the opportunity to do the same!
As reported by the NY Daily News over the weekend, the World Series ring that Dykstra won as a member of the 1986 Mets is part of an upcoming auction featuring memorabilia from Mr. Chew's career.
Dykstra, you might remember, recently filed for bankruptcy and said he only had $50,000 in assets to $31 million in debt. The championship ring is currently listed by Heritage Auctions at a bid of $7,000, but is valued at over $20,000. If only super Mets fan Bernie Madoff were around to make an offer, Dykstra might have found his way out of this mess.
It's wrong to take pleasure from the humiliation of a fellow human being, even an '86 Met.

I keep telling myself that and yet, all these years and two (!) World Series titles later, I still like to see Keith Hernandez hawking magic marker for your greybeard.
