    Description

    1998 New York Yankees World Series Championship Ring. Second only to the 1927 edition in the estimation of most baseball historians, the 1998 New York Yankees completed their four-game World Series sweep of the San Diego Padres to achieve a final record of 125-50, inclusive of their postseason victories. While the ballclub was not as thick with Hall of Fame talent as later incarnations, fan favorites like Tino, Bernie, Brosius, and O'Neill proved to form the most effective line-up of the modern dynasty, earning Bronx immortality. Presented is the ultimate symbol of that age of utter domination, a genuine World Championship ring presented to a front office staffer, complete with its original wooden display box.

    The ten karat gold trinket features genuine diamonds studding the Yankees logo "NY" on the ring face, set within an oval blue stone encircled by still more diamonds. "1998 World Champions" follows the perimeter in raised lettering. Original recipient "Felix" and the word "Tradition" frame a miniature Stadium and Series trophy on the left shank, while the right boasts of the remarkable win/lost record with the words "Best Ever" framing a Yankees hat and bat logo. "Balfour 10K" stamping appears at the band's interior, which measures to a size ten and a half (10.5). Ring weighs thirty-two and a half grams (32.5g.) with .50 total carat weight in diamonds. Mint condition.
