    Description

    1963 Los Angeles Dodgers World Championship Ring Presented to Bill "Moose" Skowron. After participating in seven World Series during the first nine seasons of his career as a New York Yankee, Moose found himself in the unfamiliar role of the enemy as he faced off against his former brothers in arms in yet another episode of the game's most storied Fall Classic rivalry. While Skowron had struggled against unfamiliar National League pitching throughout the regular season, he found new life in the Series, leading the Dodgers with a .385 batting average and clubbing a home run in an unprecedented four-game sweep of the Yankees. Presented here is the ring awarded to the popular starting first baseman of the Dodgers' third World Championship team.

    A round brilliant-cut diamond (.75 carat) commands the face, set in a blue stone and ringed by the words "Los Angeles Dodgers World Champions." Left shank features ball and bats imagery with Skowron's name engraved on the sweet spot. Right shank celebrates the sweep with "4 Straight" terminology, the Dodgers logo and the year "1963." The white gold beauty is stamped "Balfour 14K" at interior band, which measures to size eleven. Fine, undamaged condition. A wonderful memento of those thrilling Dodgers vs. Yankees Fall Classics.
