    Description


    1947 Brooklyn Dodgers National League Championship Ring. It's arguably the most important team in baseball history, the one that saved the sport's soul by taking the first brave stand against its shameful history of racial segregation. So while any Championship ring deriving from Major League Baseball is highly collectible, there's something extra special about this particular model.

    It's consigned by the son and namesake of John Collins, Sr., hired at age thirteen by Charles Ebbets to sell snacks at the stadium, beginning a forty-year career with the franchise, the last fifteen as Dodgers Business Manager. We find "J. Collins 1947" artfully engraved inside the size nine (9) band along with "Murchison Newark 14K" stamping.

    A real diamond is set into a blue stone on the face, encircled by raised text announcing "Brooklyn Baseball Club." Each shank features a blue embossed Dodgers logo. Moderate wear evident. Weight is twenty-eight grams (28 g.).
