    Same guy has this item:
    1989 UNIVERSITY OF VIRGINIA NCAA CHAMPIONS RING SOCCER, #20 AND WAYLAND ON SIDE OF RING, NAME "MATT WAYLAND" INSIDE RING

    Never heard of him, but we had ALOT of players come and go really fast in '96 :)

    Matt and his brother Mark went to Lake Braddock and were on Virginia's team, but neither played for DC United. One was a goalkeeper and the other a forward.

    Maybe Richie Williams stole the items and pawned them off to pay for his tiny apartment in new york.

    I thought the real ones had diamonds in them, could this be a sample mock up?

    Teams these days tend to make different versions with the active roster players coaches and upper management getting much more ornate rings.

    A simple gold ring for a player who never got into a league game sounds about right.

    Or for the regular team staff: sales, ticketing, operations, etc.

    Ahh, I think I've only seen a ring on Kevin's hand so that's why I thought they all had diamonds! ;)

    I thought that name sounded familiar. I played on a Fairfax league with Mark and Todd West who is now the Head Coach at AU.

    Well, actually I was thinking Tiffany's would (like a designer's sample that MLS would have approved).

    Hmpf...Mr. Wayland is obviously not emotionally attached to DC United or needs some quick cash. :D

    I think this falls into the needED some quick cash column. I think it's a pawn shop that has this and his UVA ring up for aution.

    I want to know why the heck you've allowed this to even get to Ebay, it's just been sitting in a pawnshop in Falls Church ......... you could have gotten it cheaper by just walking in ...........

    Wow, that is going waaay back :eek:

    If my vague memory serves me right, I remember buying stuff through him when he was working for the Lanzera guys. The next time I saw him was when he was in the front office (a ticket rep?) in the first couple of years of DC United.

    Matt Wayland was definitly a ticket sales rep in '96 and '97. He's the guy who sold me my season tix in those years. I believe he even won a front office award that first season. He was a nice guy as I remember.
    Didn't anybody else get one of those certificates of ownership that looked like a high school award certificate when they got their first season tix? On mine he signed the bottom so I'm positive he is the same guy who's likely selling this ring.

    As for selling it. It may not be just for cash. He probably never wears it. Can you imagine people asking about the ring and you reply that you were a ticket agent and not a player? I mean general manager or coach is acceptable, but a ticket rep with a Cup ring might seem a bit pretentious.
