    1999 New York Yankees World Championship Platinum Pendant--Rarest Yankees Championship Hardware. Letter of provenance from the ex-wife of pitcher Jeff Nelson tells the tale of this rarest of modern Yankees Championship hardware: "Dear Collector, The World Series pendant was designed by Roger Clemens through Diamond Cutters International in Houston, TX. Roger designed this because he wanted a 'players only ring & pendant,' which was only offered to team members of the 1999 season World Champion Yankees. Not every player purchased this very special item, so it is a very limited piece."

    A second letter, from the jewelers themselves, notes that this is: "1) The 1st platinum championship pendant in history in any sport. 2) The most valuable championship pendant ever in any sport. 3) The first use of an interlocking diamond logo in World Series history." Pendant remains in pristine, unworn condition. "Plat" stamped on otherwise blank verso. Letter of provenance from ex-wife of Jeff Nelson. Letter of appraisal from Diamond Cutters International, replacement cost $30,000.
