In an effort to discourage those within the organization from selling their World Series rings, the Chicago Cubs are asking non-players to sign an agreement giving the team the right to buy back the ring for $1.

"I signed that thing willingly," Cubs general manager Jed Hoyer said Tuesday. "Everyone except for the players signed it. I look at it as the Ricketts [ownership] were so unbelievably generous in the cost of the ring and the number they gave out, I think it's totally appropriate when you're paying for the ring and helping out with the taxes along with that -- it seems appropriate to say, 'I don't expect you to take the gift I'm giving you and run out to the market with it.'"

The Cubs gave out 1,908 rings and pins to everyone from high-level executives to the scoreboard operator after winning their first World Series in 108 years last season.

It's unclear how much the Ricketts family paid for the rings -- of which there are different tiers -- but according to sports ring dealer Tim Robins, "If a midlevel player were to be the first to sell his 2016 Cubs championship ring, I think it could go for at least $80,000."
