Description

    1962 New York Yankees World Championship Ring Presented to Dale Long. It was the tenth and final World Championship over a sixteen-season span, an era of dominance that finds no equal in the history of the Major Leagues. Surely it seemed as if the glory would continue into eternity, but fourteen seasons of drought lurked around the bend. Presented is the glimmering symbol of that final trip to the mountain top during the Mickey Mantle era, awarded to first baseman Dale Long at the conclusion of the closest World Series in history. Bobby Richardson's grab of Willie McCovey's liner proved to be the final out of Game Seven, a ball that would have brought in Felipe Alou with the tying run, and Mays with the winner, had it dropped.

    A genuine diamond rests in the face of the ring, encircled by raised text announcing, "New York Yankees, World Champions." Each shank is identical, featuring the classic hat and bat logo beneath a bold "1962." Interior band is stamped "Balfour 14K" and engraved with a scripted "Dale Long." Size ten. Fine condition. An enormously desirable player ring from a truly golden age in the Bronx.
