A ring that is believed to be Joe DiMaggio's from the 1951 World Series is up for sale in New York.
While it's impossible to verify that the ring did indeed belong to DiMaggio, the New York Post is reporting that a ring with Joltin' Joe's name etched inside it could fetch between $50,000 to $100,000 on the market.
Sports-memorabilia auctioneer David Hunt told the Post that DiMaggio passed on the original design of the ring in 1951, telling the salesman that he wanted something different. And so for decades, the ring was held by the family of an executive of the Dieges & Clust jewelry company.
Others, including DiMaggio's lawyer and friend Morris Engelberg, believe the ring might have been stolen during a heist of DiMaggio's room at the Lexington Hotel in the early 1960s.
The bidding is underway at Hunt Auction's website and will last until Nov. 9.
