    1980 Kansas City Royals American League Championship Ring.

    UPDATE: This lot will be accompanied by a letter from our consignor stating she purchased this ring from Yankees coach and scout Billy Connors.

    A first taste of Fall Classic action for this 1969 expansion franchise, and while they'd fall to the Phillies in six games, they'd finally reach the mountain top five years later. This is the first of its breed we've handled, a ring issued to coach Billy Connors for the Royals' first pennant. The ring face has been altered from standard format, the blue center stone replaced with real diamond studs in the shape of a Connors' jersey number "36." Left shank reveals the recipient's surname and position framing an image of Royals Stadium. Right shank features the logos of the 1980 World Series and Kansas City Royals. Band measures to a size nine and three-quarters (9.75). Weight is thirty-two grams (32 g.). Light wear evident. Interior band stamped "10K Jostens."
