Description1961 New York Yankees World Series Championship Replacement Ring Presented to Moose Skowron. It was one of the most unforgettable seasons in Yankees history, brimming with World Championship glory. Though the year is best remembered for the M&M Boys' assault on the Babe, that scintillating drama shouldn't overshadow the fact that the 1961 Yankees was one of the best teams ever to step on a diamond, winning a staggering 109 games.
This replacement World Series ring was presented to starting first baseman Moose Skowron, who hit twenty-eight home runs, drove in eighty-nine runs and was an A.L. All-Star in 1961. It sports a faux diamond on the face, encircled by raised text that reads, "New York Yankees World Champions." Each shank features the team's bat and hat logo and the year "1961." The ring measures to size nine-and-three-quarters (9.75) and weighs thirty-eight grams (38 g.). The inner band is stamped "LGB 10K." Fine condition.
Guide Value or Estimate: $10,000 - up.

Signature Internet Extended Bid: These Auctions are presented via catalog and online. Bidding is taken through our website or via phone. There are two phases of bidding during this type of auction: 1) Normal bidding: Bids are taken up until 10 PM CT the night the auction closes. 2) 30 Minute Ending: On a lot-by-lot basis, starting at 10:00 PM CT, any person who has bid on the lot previously may continue to bid on that lot until there are no more bids for 30 minutes. For example, if you bid on a lot during Normal Bidding, you could participate during Extended Bidding for that lot, but not on lots you did not bid on previously. If a bid was placed at 10:15, the new end time for that lot would become 10:45. If no other bids were placed before 10:45, the lot would close. If you are the high bidder on a lot, changing your bid will not extend the bidding during the 30 Minute Ending phase (only a bid from another bidder will extend bidding). If you are the only bidder at 10 PM, you will automatically win the lot at 10:30. Important: After normal bidding ends, you must be signed-on to the Heritage site to see the bidding option on lots where you qualify for extended bidding.
