    1982 St. Louis Cardinals World Championship Ring Presented to Eric Rasmussen. In 1981, the team with the best record in the National League East failed to make the playoffs. The player's strike forced the season to be cut into two halves, and St. Louis finished second both times despite finishing with the best record in the division. The team atoned for '81 by winning it all in 1982. The Suds Series was captured by St. Louis in a full seven games. This "[size] 10.5" ring was presented to situational reliever Eric Rasmussen for his mound work. A diamond is set against a red ruby on front. "World Champions Cardinals" surrounds the outside. One side features "1982" along with an image of Busch Stadium and the World Series trophy. "Rasmussen," a Cardinals emblem and "34" are formed on the opposite side. "10k Jostens" is engraved inside. This was originally obtained from a bankruptcy auction in 1997. Original 1997 purchase LOA included.
