Almost every autograph seeker approaching Fergie Jenkins in the back room at Skokie's Village Inn the other night asked to see the Hall of Famer's Cubs World Series ring.
The bling was like a magic talisman. From a grandma in a walker to kids, they asked to try on the ring, taking a photo with the always-affable Jenkins. The ring simply gave off its own aura. That's what a once-in-two-lifetimes achievement will do for a massive, grateful fan base.
Now it will be Andre Dawson's turn to share his ring with fans.
