"I asked Nick where’s his ring and he said his wife left it in his handbag and they walked out without it. And now I got Foles’ ring and they believed it," he said. "I just knew this would set them off and it did."
It sure did. The story caught fire and went viral. Even the Philadelphia Eagles heard about the story and confirmed the ring in the photo isn’t the real deal
Baratta, a life-long eagles fan who actually does business with some players, says he already planning his nex purchase.
