Description

    1958 New York Yankees World Championship Ring Presented to Bill "Moose" Skowron. The 1950's was a halcyon era in America, with World War II in the past, a booming post-war economy, and a bright future to look forward too. More than any other sports franchise, the New York Yankees defined America at the time. The epitome of perennial excellence and dominance, The Bronx Bombers played in eight World Series during the decade, while winning six.

    On offer here is the ultimate baseball award from sport's greatest team and America's fondest decade. "New York Yankees World Champions" travels the perimeter of the top face of this refined fourteen karat (14k) gold artifact in raised lettering, surrounding a genuine thirty-five-point diamond inside of a baseball diamond, while each shank provides the classic hat and bat team logo and the year "1958." The interior band is engraved "Bill Skowron." Size nine and a quarter (9.25). Weight twenty-four grams (24 g.).

    Yankee World Series rings come at a premium, especially those from the 1950's and star players. One of the select few examples ever offered for public sale, this ring belonged to eight-time All-Star Bill "Moose" Skowron who was a starter on the 1958 World Series championship team. It comes with its original leather and suede Balfour presentational box with top hat logo and "Championship Award" embossed in gold on the lid. Original purchase LOA.
