It's not easy to balance the needs of Red Sox Nation and the Yankee faithful. Boggs stirred controversy in May when he wore his '96 Yanks championship ring to Fenway for a 30th-anniversary ceremony honoring the '86 Red Sox. So he left the ring off when he returned to Boston shortly thereafter to see his number retired. Both of these caps show moderate wear, with "8" signatures and number notations on the bottom brim. The Red Sox cap comes with a PSA/DNA sticker/no cert, while the Yankees cap has an Auction LOA from JSA.
