    Description

    1939 New York Yankees World Championship Lady's Ring Presented to Spurgeon "Spud" Chandler. It was one of the most historic years in baseball history, a centennial season that saw the debut of Ted Williams, the sad farewell of Lou Gehrig, and the ribbon cutting of the Hall of Fame at Cooperstown. The final out of the 1939 season, a bottom of the tenth liner into the glove of shortstop Frankie Crosetti at Crosley Field, would supply the last distinguishing mark on the year's baseball calendar, establishing the New York Yankees as the first team in Major League history to win four consecutive World Series titles.

    That unprecedented achievement is commemorated here, a lady's ring delivered to the Chandler family shortly after the completion of the Yankees' four-game Fall Classic sweep of the Cincinnati Reds. The format is effectively a minor variation on the player model, identical in design but scaled down to a diminutive size six (6).

    A large, genuine diamond is set into a silver figural baseball diamond on the ring face, with raised text announcing, "New York Yankees World Champions" at the perimeter. Each shank pictures a bald eagle in flight, clasping a "New York" banner in its beak. Interior band is stamped "D&C 14K" and engraved, "Presented by Commissioner to Spurgeon Chandler." Proud wear has affected the sharp relief of the ring's detailing, but it still presents very well and the enormous appeal of such special vintage is entirely unaffected. Letter of provenance from the Chandler family.
