Paul Krichell 1947 New York Yankees World Series Ring
Starting Bid - $2,000.00, Sold For - $4,700.00
New York Yankees 1947 World Series ring presented to legendary chief scout Paul Krichell (the man who discovered Lou Gehrig). The 14K gold ring features a single diamond in the center set within a baseball diamond motif. Each shank is identical in design and features an American eagle with the team name, "New York," and the year, "1947," displayed, respectively, above and below. Krichell's name is engraved in script on the interior of the band. Manufactured by renowned jewelers Dieges & Clust (as engraved on the interior). Krichell was the New York Yankees chief scout for thirty-seven years, joining the organization in 1920. In addition to signing Gehrig, he also signed Phil Rizzuto, Charlie Keller, Vic Raschi, and Whitey Ford. At the time of his death, in 1957, Krichell was the longest-tenured employee of the entire Yankees organization. This ring has remained in the Krichell family since his passing and has been consigned directly by a family member. The ring is heavily worn, including the loss of some detail to the raised relief designs, as is often the case with World Series rings that have seen years of personal use. In Very Good condition. Size: Approximately 10.25. Reserve $2,000. Estimate $5,000+. SOLD FOR $4,700.00
