Don Drysdale's 1963 World Series ring sells for $110K
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Don Drysdale's 1963 World Series championship ring with the Los Angeles Dodgers sold for $110,111 in an auction of the late Hall of Fame pitcher's memorabilia.
A spokesman for SCP Auctions says the ring was purchased by an anonymous buyer in the sale that ended late Saturday.
Drysdale's 1962 Cy Young Award as the National League's top pitcher sold for $100,100.
Kelly Drysdale, the pitcher's daughter from his first marriage, previously expressed sadness that she wasn't informed of the auction or offered any items by Drysdale's widow, Hall of Fame basketball player Ann Meyers. Kelly Drysdale says she would have liked the Cy Young Award, which was displayed in her house growing up.
Drysdale's 1965 World Series championship ring went for $90,999, while his 1956 Brooklyn Dodgers game-worn rookie uniform fetched $82,727.
Those buyers also wished to remain anonymous.
Among the other items garnering the highest prices was four of Drysdale's game-worn Dodgers uniforms, including two that he wore during the 1965 World Series. They sold for prices ranging from $25,686 to $41,372. His 1956 Brooklyn Dodgers NL championship ring went for $25,726, and his well-worn, game-used fielder's glove from the 1960s sold for $30,343.
