Straw’s ’98 ring fetches a pretty pennyBy
The going rate these days for historic World Series rings seems to be around $55,000. At least, that’s how much Southeby’s raked in for auctioning off Darryl Strawberry’s 1998 World Series ring. The ring was estimated to sell for between $20,000-$30,000, but the final tally, obviously, far exceeded those guesses. No one knew if Strawberry himself would take in the dough or if he had already sold it to another buyer who was now putting the ring up for auction.
