Chicago Cubs One of the team’s 2016 World Series rings that was offered for sale on an auction website has been taken off the market. Leland’s Auctions said Monday that it removed the ring from auction at the request of the Cubs and “due to a contractual issue.” The team initially raised questions about the ring’s authenticity.

Green says the Cubs have “identified the scout, who no longer works for the ballclub.” The ring, which features 214 diamonds, marked the team’s first title in 108 years. Dale Earnhardt Jr.
