In the 2013 NCAA Championship, the Michigan Wolverines almost won their second title in school history. The team lost to the Louisville Cardinals and left the players on this year’s teams without championship rings. The good news is that fans of the Wolverines have the opportunity to get their hands on a championship ring via eBay.

The 1989 championship ring belonging to former Wolverine Rumeal Robinson is for sale on eBay. A friend of Robinson’s sold the ring to the eBay user and they are now hoping to cash in on Michigan’s recent success. After originally wanting to sell the ring during next year’s 25th anniversary celebration of the Wolverine’s only title, Yee Mar has decided to accept offers on the rings.

The ring can be found on eBay with the ridiculous but fitting buy it now price of $89,899.89. Mar is willing to accept other offers on the ring though. The ring is 10k gold and a great piece of memorabilia. It measures size 11.5. Portions from the sale will go to the V Foundation, a charity named after Jim Valvano.

In the 1989 NCAA Championship, Robinson scored 21 points, including two key free throws to seal the team’s win over Seton Hall in overtime. Robinson’s great tournament also helped him get drafted 10th overall in the 1990 NBA draft. Robinson played in 336 NBA games, scoring 2546 points. Robinson averaged 7.6 points and had his best season with the Atlanta Hawks in 1991-1992. In that season, Robinson averaged 13.0 points, 2.7 rebounds and 5.5 assists.

Robinson played three seasons at Michigan. During his senior year, Robinson averaged 19.2 points, 4.2 rebounds, 6.1 assists in 34 minutes per game. The prior two seasons Robinson averaged 14.9 and 9.7 points per game.

Robinson is currently in jail on bank bribery and fraud charges.
