    Description

    2000 New York Yankees World Series Championship Ring. It's been no fewer than fourteen times in Major League history that the World Series has been contested within the boundaries of New York City, the Yankees facing the Giants and the Brooklyn Dodgers six and seven times respectively. But the westward exodus of those National League titans, and the growth of the competitive field from Major League expansion, put an end to this rather common occurrence for more than four decades.

    But in the year 2000, the stars finally realigned, providing the thrill of a fourteenth Subway Series to generations of New Yorkers who had previously only heard the tales from their parents and grandparents. The City that Never Sleeps suddenly couldn't sleep, kept awake by the tension of knowing that friends and coworkers would be tormentors or the tormented when a victor was decided and bragging rights assigned.

    Seventeen years later, the sight of this gorgeous symbol of the Yankees victory is still sure to wound a vanquished Mets supporter, and the ostentatious sparkle of a diamond-packed face is certain to catch an envious eye. They form a logo "NY" atop a blue stone, with raised text at the perimeter asserting "2000 World Champions." Left shank pictures the famous Yankee Stadium facade and the bat and hat logo above the word, "Pride." Right shank supplies the surname of the front office worker to whom the ring was issued above images of the World Series trophy and a Yankee Stadium aerial view with the word "Tradition." Interior band is stamped "Balfour 14K," assuring the ring is identical to those earned on the field of play by Jeter, Rivera and the boys. Size eleven (11). Weight fifty grams (50 g.). Near fine condition in original hinged wood and etched glass display case.

    The 2000 representation is considerably less common than the other rings of the late 20th century Yankees dynasty, a minimized production run believed to have been a result of team management's irritation at other models ending up on the secondary market. This is just the second we have ever offered.
