1982 Ron Darling Norfolk Tides Minor League Championship Ring Four years after he earned this award, the Mets pitcher would allow just three earned runs in 17 2/3 innings as he faced the Boston Red Sox in the World Series, earning a ring he probably cherishes a bit more than the one we offer here. Nonetheless, this rare offering marks the first Championship ring awarded to the Mets star, won as a member of the squad's International League Norfolk Tides. "Governor's Cup Champions" lines the perimeter of a blue stone on the face, which is embossed with a gold Mets logo. Left shank offers the Tides logo; the right, that of the Mets, and "Darling" engraved above. Ten karat gold. Size 8 1/4.

    The ring also comes with a letter of authenticity on New York Mets stationary that reads: "To Whom it May Concern: This 1982 Governors Cup Champions Ring with the Tidewater Tides, belonged to me. I hope it enhances your collection." Signed by Ron Darling.
