    1985 Louisville Redbirds American Association Championship Ring. Six-time All-Star player and long-time Major League manager Jim Fregosi was at the helm of this Cardinals farm team when it conquered the American Association in 1985, setting rings like this one into production. This one was issued to outfielder Curtis Ford, who played six seasons in the Bigs, starting the year this ring was earned. A faux diamond is set into a black stone on the ring face, encircled by two concentric rows of text reading, "1985 Louisville, American Association Champions." Left shank reports the "Ford" attribution above a team logo; right shank reads, "Decies Centena Milia," translated from the Latin to "million." Interior band is stamped "Jenkins 10K" and measures to a size twelve (12). Weight is twenty-five grams (25g.). Fine condition. Letter of provenance from Curtis Ford.

    Guide Value or Estimate: $1,500 - up.
