The Villiage Voice reports the forer New York Mayor has four of the rings -- one for each year the Yankees won the Series while he was Mayor. They're valued at $200,000 for the set of four. But the Mayor reportedly got a sweetheart deal -- getting them for just $16,000. The Voice says that's a problem:

"What's more troubling is that Giuliani's receipt of the rings may be a serious breach of the law, and one that could still be prosecuted. New York officials are barred from taking a gift of greater than $50 value from anyone doing business with the city, and under Giuliani, that statute was enforced aggressively against others."
