Description

    1973 Oakland Athletics World Series Championship Ring. Only two Major League franchises have claimed World Series three-peats. One was clad in pinstripes, the other in the brightest green and gold uniforms ever to grace a ballfield. Here we present an inhabitant of that bulging Oakland trophy case, a relic that stays faithful to the green and gold theme in its simple but engaging design.

    A large green stone appears on the ring face, encircled by raised text that reads, "World Champions 72-73." Left shank reports the World Series results of both trips to glory above the letters "S+S=S," Charlie Finley's mantra of "Sweat plus sacrifice equals success." Right shank reads, "Oakland" above a team logo and a figural baseball. "Harris" at bottom is the surname of the original recipient, though we have been unable to identify his or her role with the team. Interior band is stamped "Josten's 14K" and measures to a size eleven and a half (11.5). Weight is thirty grams (30g.). Fine condition, in original wooden display box. Letter of provenance from 1998 reporting ring was purchased at City of San Bernardino, CA Sheriff's Department auction.
