Pesky World Series ring sells for $69,000 at auction

Posted: Updated:
BOSTON (WHDH) - A live auction at Fenway Park on Saturday included many of Red Sox Hall of Famer Johnny Pesky’s personal items.

The top seller was his 2004 World Series Championship ring, which was sold for $69,000. His 2007 one sold for $29,900.

"Johnny Pesky's place within the history of the Red Sox franchise was evident today in the exceptional auction prices realized," said David Hunt, President Hunt Auctions, which organized the event.

Pesky died in 2012 at the age of 93 after a career spanning more than 60 years with the Red Sox.

The collection of 19th century Hall of Fame player Charles “Kid” Nichols was also available for bids. This included a Spalding presentational baseball bat from the Blue Ave BBC, which sold for $109,250.  

Nichols was a pitcher between 1890-1906 and played on a number of teams, including the Boston Beaneaters.
