Default What does this group think of Career Rings?

I see that a Joe DiMaggio Career Championship Ring is being sold at Goldin Auctions

Seeing the ring in the auction reminded me what a great championship style ring this is and the neat features it has.

Full disclosure – That’s not my ring in the latest Goldin auction, however, I do own a DiMaggio ring and ball from the production run.

I have seen quite a few fake “career rings” in the hobby place. I’m no expert on career rings, and I don't know which rings are authentic and have been issued, and to which players.

I do know for a fact, that Balfour made real career rings for Joe DiMaggio and Mickey Mantle.

I’ve seen Don Mattingly career rings and others too, but again, I’m not sure if they are real – the Mattingly ring certainly looks, quality-wise, as a fake.

Keep in mind on the Mantle career championship ring, they number to 536, however, it’s well-known by championship ring collectors that Balfour never made more than 100 or 200 of those rings.

The DiMaggio career championship ring has some very neat features about it, please check out my blog at the link below to learn more about the DiMaggio ring and the cool features and items it comes with.

What do the readers here think of Career rings? A neat way to build a collection for a fraction of the money of a player ring? Or a waste of money?

Your thoughts?

I just started collecting autographed memorabilia but I'd consider a Mattingly career ring if it weren't expensive.

I don't believe the Mattingly career rings are authentic. By authentic, I mean licensed and produced by Balfour or Jostens or a real championship ring company.

That said, Mattingly career rings come up for auction on ebay and other sports auction houses and go for considerably less money than the Mantle or DiMaggio rings.

Good luck in your search!
