    1983 Baltimore Orioles World Championship Ring Presented to Farm Club Coach Len Johnston. Following their 1970 World Series win, the Baltimore Orioles reached postseason play four more times during the decade but were unable to hoist the World Series trophy. That changed in 1983 when second year shortstop Cal Ripken Jr., Eddie Murray and Jim Palmer elevated the organization back into the postseason. From there they made quick work out of the Chicago White Sox. The World Series was over in five games as the Orioles took any guesswork as to what team was baseball's best in '83.

    This size 11 ring was presented to longtime team associate Len Johnston. "Orioles" is crafted on the face in cursive set against a bed of diamonds. "1983 World Champions" surrounds the outer region. The left shank has "Johnston" raised along with a miniature World Series trophy. The opposite side has "World Series 1983" along with an Orioles emblem fitted with a crown. "Balfour 10k" is etched into the inner band. A gray velvet case accompanies. Weight is thirty-two grams (32g.).
