Quite a few Jim Leyritz Yankee World Series Rings have sold over the last dozen years, including the 2000 ring at least three times. Now’s your chance to acquire one:
I have no affiliation with the championship ring shown above. I have no idea who the current owner is and I won’t be bidding for this 2000 World Series ring since I already own a player 2000 ring.
I can tell you the Leyritz World Series ring shown above is 100% authentic and will go for a lot of money, especially if there are two more bidders with deep pockets who really want this championship ring.
Jim Leyritz and his troubles and issues are well documented and we don’t have to go into details here. His three Yankee World Series rings (1996, 1999 and 2000) have all sold throughout the years (in 1999, he was playing with the Red Sox and then the Padres). I believe he also received a 1999 Padres National League Championship ring that year too as I have been offered chances to buy it.
Many championship ring collectors have told me that Leyritz had more than one 1999 and 2000 Yankees World Series rings made. I have no idea if this is true or not, and further, I have no idea if the three 2000 Yankee World Series rings that have sold with his name on them are the same ring or if there is a possible second championship ring floating around in the hobby.
No matter, this Goldin auction, Leyritz championship ring comes with paperwork from Jim Leyritz stating it’s his Yankee issue World Series ring, and the 2000 Yankee ring is much more rare than the 1996, 1998, and 1999 versions.
Please remember, I buy championship rings. If you have a championship ring and would like to sell your championship ring in complete privacy, please contact me.
