The New York Yankees last night won their historic 27th World Series championship. With inspired play, the Yankees clinched the six-game series and earned the right to hoist the Commissioner’s Trophy as champions of the world.
Cash4Gold today estimated the melt value of the championship hardware, which consists of 30 pounds of sterling silver and 30 gold-plated flags, at around $7,750. Melt value refers to the actual value of the precious metal contained in an object, and does not account for sentimental, historic or artistic value.
Clearly, the World Series trophy is not something that would be sent in to Cash4Gold’s state-of-the-art processing facility to be melted down. However, the company has offered to do a free appraisal of the hardware.
