    The Amazin' Mets shock the baseball world!

    1969 New York Mets World Series Championship Ring Presented to Pitcher Danny Frisella. Just seven years after debuting with a historically awful 40-120 season in 1962, the New York Mets were Champions of the baseball world, capping an Amazin' season with a four games to one elimination of the heavily-favored Baltimore Orioles. Though the franchise would return to glory in 1986, the beneficiary of the Curse of the Bambino and Red Sox first baseman Bill Buckner's devastating error, this 1969 edition is widely considered the most delectable vintage of all Mets editions.

    Presented is the ultimate symbol of that team's success, a World Championship ring presented to right-handed reliever Danny Frisella, whose life and career were tragically cut short by a fatal dune buggy crash on New Year's Day of 1977. "New York Mets World Champions 1969" stands in raised lettering at the perimeter of a blue central stone on the face, which holds an inset genuine diamond. Left shank features a Mets team logo and an engraved identification: "29 Frisella P." Right shank is dominated by an image of Shea Stadium in miniature with text announcing the trail of their success: "Eastern Division, National League, World Series," and the words "Mets vs. Orioles."

    The interior band is stamped "Josten 10K" and engraved with Frisella's name. Size ten and a half (10.5). Included is the original hinged wooden display case with plaque on lid bearing the team logo. Ring presents in NRMT-MT condition, and display case exhibits only light storage wear.
