    Description

    1986 New York Mets World Series Championship Ring. Like a garlic-encrusted crucifix to the vampire that is Boston Red Sox fandom, the presented prize will stop any Fenway fanatic dead in his tracks and send him hustling in the opposite direction. Forever evocative of Bill Buckner's historic blunder, this gleaming prize commemorates one of the most improbable World Championships in Major League history, and the first and last taste of glory in Queens since the Amazin' season of 1969.

    The ring is identical in design and construction to those earned on the field of battle by Strawberry, Carter and Dykstra, and derives from the personal collection of a Shea front office worker. It's the only example that Heritage has had the privilege to present other than Nails' personal model, which we auctioned for over $56,000 in 2009.

    A genuine diamond rests at the center of a blue stone upon the ring's face, encircled by a perimeter of smaller diamonds and the miraculous words "1986 World Champions." The Mets logo and the words "116 Wins, New York" frame a miniature World Series trophy upon the left shank, while the right announces the recipient's surname above a logo celebrating the Silver Anniversary of the Mets franchise. "LGB 10K" stamping appears at interior of the band, which measures to a size thirteen and a half (13.5). Proud wear is evident, but the ring still presents beautifully.
