    Description

    1944 St. Louis Browns American League Championship Ring. The lone bright spot in a dark universe of mediocrity for the Browns franchise, which emerged from the lower half of American League standings just twelve times in over a half century in St. Louis before becoming the Baltimore Orioles. While US troops were storming the beaches at Normandy, the Browns were conquering the Junior Circuit, setting up an all-St. Louis Fall Classic.

    Here is a rare prize for the Browns' flag capture, crafted from fourteen karat gold and white enamel, properly understated for the serious times. A team logo commands the face of the ring, encircled by raised text reading "American League Champions." Ball and bats imagery joins the number "19" on the left shank, with the year completed by "44" on the right beneath a "St. Louis" flag. Engraved at interior band is "Tom Bramell," the name of a front office worker. Size nine and a half (9.5). Excellent condition.
