Alex Rodriguez’s only World Series ring is up for auction, although Rodriguez himself is not the one who consigned it.
As 1010 WINS’ Gene Michaels reported, Rodriguez’s 2009 World Series ring is not being sold by the Yankees third baseman himself, but by an auctioneer who bought it from his cousin, Yuri Sucart – the man A-Rod said convinced him to use steroids.
Memorabilia auctioneer Ken Goldin bought the ring from Sucart for $5,000, and consigned it to auction, according to published reports.
Michaels asked Jim, a Yankees fan, if he would like to be the proud owner of A-Rod’s World Series ring.
“It would be pretty awesome, actually,” Jim replied.
The ring goes up on the auction block starting Monday at GoldinAuctions.com, with a minimum bid of $5,000.
“I don’t think I can afford that,” Jim said.
And some think the ring might garner $40,000 when the auction ends April 5.
Apparently, for A-Rod, the ring is not the thing.
