Under manager Joe Torre, and featuring a plethora of star players, the 2001 New York Yankees won the AL East title with a record of 95-65. The team featured many big bats including Tino Martinez (34 home runs, 113 runs batted in), Derek Jeter (.311 batting average, 110 runs scored) and Bernie Williams (.307 average, 102 runs). For as good as the Yankees were offensively, they were just as dominating on the pitching mound. Roger Clemens was phenomenal, posting a record of 20-3; Mike Mussina went 17-11 with a 3.15 ERA and Andy Pettitte won 15 games. Closer Mariano Rivera recorded 50 saves with a 2.34 ERA. After defeating the Oakland Athletics in the AL Division Series, the Yankees beat the Seattle Mariners to win the American League pennant. Ultimately, New York would lose the World Series in seven games to the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Offered here is a 2001 New York Yankees American League championship ring that was presented to Chuck Knoblauch, who batted .250 with 38 stolen bases during the season. This Balfour 14K gold ring features the Yankees famed top hat and bat logo, surrounded by diamonds, with red and blue gemstones appearing in the hat. “YANKEES AMERICAN LEAGUE CHAMPIONS” reads in relief lettering. One shank is centered by the team’s “NY” logo set on the backdrop of an American flag. “KNOBLAUCH” appears at the top with the word “PRIDE” at the bottom. The opposite side shows the year “2001” above the raised image of a baseball, with the word “TRADITION” below. Knoblauch’s name is engraved inside the band, which also includes a “BALFOUR 14K” mark. This ring weighs approximately 56.6 grams and is an approximate size 9 ½. Included is the original wooden hinged presentation box, reading “NEW YORK YANKEES 2001 AMERICAN LEAGUE CHAMPIONS”. This ring is in MINT CONDITION and one of the finest 2001 Yankees AL Champion rings ever offered. With very little to no marks on this equisite ring, this will easily become a prized possession for anyone's collection. This item comes with a LOA from the family of Chuck Knoblach.
