    The National League president is remembered by The Big Red Machine

    1976 Cincinnati Reds World Series Championship Ring Presented to Charles "Chub" Feeney. "The Big Red Machine" appears prominently on the short list of the greatest and most memorable baseball dynasties, and few relics could more effectively celebrate that status than a World Championship ring of the style earned on the field by Rose, Bench, Perez and the boys to successful defend their Major League crown. The Reds would sweep the mighty Yankees in four straight Fall Classic battles in 1976 before watching the Bronx Bombers match their back-to-back feat in 1977 and 1978. This particular model was issued to the head honcho of the Senior Circuit, National League president Charles "Chub" Feeney, who held office for a seventeen-year term (1970-86).

    A large genuine diamond adorns a figural World Series trophy on the ring face, with text at the perimeter reporting, "Cincinnati Reds '76 World Champions." Left shank boasts of the Fall Classic sweep of the mighty New York Yankees with imagery of Riverfront Stadium and the team logo. Right shank trumpets, "Big Red Machine" with the logo "C" and the surname of the recipient. Interior band is stamped, "Balfour 10K" and measures to a size eight and a half (8.5). A remarkable keepsake of one of the most important teams ever assembled. Letter of provenance from son of Charles Feeney.
