(Newser) – A 1951 World Series ring headed to auction has Joe DiMaggio's name etched inside—but it comes with a healthy supply of contention. First off, the ring may never have belonged to the baseball great; the auctioneer says DiMaggio rejected the ring's initial design. And if he did own it, it may have been among those stolen from his hotel room in the 1960s, says a DiMaggio lawyer and friend. Bidding runs until Nov. 9 at Hunt Auctions' website, the New York Post reports. It's expected to go for between $50,000 and $100,000.
