A-Rod’s 2009 World Series ring is going up for sale

Via Michael O’Keefe of the New York Daily News:

The diamond-studded, 2009 World Series ring A-Rod gave his cousin Yuri Sucart — the man Rodriguez says talked him into using steroids — will go on sale Monday, and sports memorabilia auctioneer Ken Goldin says it could fetch as much as $40,000.

Major League Baseball banned Sucart from the Yankees’ facilities in the spring of 2009 after Rodriguez told reporters that he had experimented with performance-enhancing drugs in 2003 and that they were administered by his “cousin Yuri.”

But it’s clear that the two have maintained a close relationship. Sucart was spotted on road trips with the Yankees in 2010 and 2011, and his name was discovered alongside A-Rod’s in the Biogenesis documents released last month by the Miami New Times. The ring has “Rodriguez” emblazoned on one side.
