    1924 Washington Senators World Championship Pendant Presented to Herold "Muddy" Ruel. After presenting the thrilling "Muddy Ruel Collection" in our October 2005 Signature Auction, we are pleased to present what is arguably the most important artifact from the personal collection of this superstar backstop, the prize awarded to him for his part in the Washington Senators' only World Series victory. And what a part he played! Baseball historians will surely be aware that it was Ruel who bounded home in the bottom of the twelfth in the Series' seventh game to seal the deal for the Washington squad and deliver to legendary pitcher Walter Johnson the single missing jewel from his crown. The visual majesty of the pendant is fitting for its historical relevance, and the condition remains superb after eight decades of existence. An embossed image of the US Capitol building rises above a ball and bats motif, with a faux diamond set at center of the former. A golden "Washington" is emblazoned across the red enamel header, with "World 1924 Champions" similarly placed along the blue footer. We flip the pendant to find text on verso that reads, "Presented to Herold Ruel by the Commissioner of Baseball." The bottom is stamped "14KT Dieges & Clust." This treasure's status as the only World Championship award from the Senators' long history, and its relation to the man who scored the Series-winning run, makes it one of the most appealing awards to find its way into the collecting marketplace in some time.
