    1931 World Series Championship Ring Presented to Gabby Street. The man who piloted the Red Birds to their underdog victory over the two-time defending World Champion Philadelphia Athletics was presented this fourteen-karat white gold trinket for his services, with the ring remaining in the possession of the Street family until its consignment to this auction. A well-loved beauty, the ring shows no shortage of wear but still displays wonderfully, with a .55 carat diamond at center of a red stone on the face, ringed with the words "St. Louis Cardinals, World Champions 1931." The birds and bat logos on each shank still retain just a touch of the original paint, and the "Charles E. Street" engraved at the band's interior is still clearly legible. The ring has been resized to measure ten, leaving a tightly filled gap at center which could easily be expanded if desired. An absolute treasure for Championship ring and St. Louis Cardinals collectors alike. Guide Value or Estimate: $4,000 - $6,000.

    The Charles "Gabby" Street Collection

    The following nine lots derive from the personal collection of Charles "Gabby" Street, whose long career as a player, a manager and a radio broadcaster made him a staple in Big League ballparks for over four decades. Widely credited with developing a young Walter Johnson into the game's most effective pitcher as the Big Train's Washington Senators catcher during Johnson's earliest seasons, Street would gain even greater notoriety as manager of the early 1930's St. Louis Cardinals, who would win two National League pennants and a World Championship under his guidance. All pieces derive directly from the Street family with their letter of provenance.
