Description1987 Minnesota Twins World Series Championship Pendant Presented to Wife of Bert Blyleven. After being unhappy with the Cleveland Indians, Bert Blyleven was traded back to the Minnesota Twins in 1985, where he would pass the 3,000 strikeout mark and help his team win a world championship in 1987. This pendant was issued to Blyleven's wife following the thrilling seven-game World Series. The team's emblem is studded with real diamonds atop a blue stone on the front, surrounded by "Twins World Champions." Verso is engraved "Patty" and "1987." Later, after the pendant was incorporated into a bracelet, the Jostens maker's mark and "14K" stamp were no longer visible. The weight of the pendant bracelet is forty-two grams (42 g.).
Guide Value or Estimate: $1,500 - up.
Signature Internet Extended Bid: These Auctions are presented via catalog and online. Bidding is taken through our website or via phone. There are two phases of bidding during this type of auction: 1) Normal bidding: Bids are taken up until 10 PM CT the night the auction closes. 2) 30 Minute Ending: On a lot-by-lot basis, starting at 10:00 PM CT, any person who has bid on the lot previously may continue to bid on that lot until there are no more bids for 30 minutes. For example, if you bid on a lot during Normal Bidding, you could participate during Extended Bidding for that lot, but not on lots you did not bid on previously. If a bid was placed at 10:15, the new end time for that lot would become 10:45. If no other bids were placed before 10:45, the lot would close. If you are the high bidder on a lot, changing your bid will not extend the bidding during the 30 Minute Ending phase (only a bid from another bidder will extend bidding). If you are the only bidder at 10 PM, you will automatically win the lot at 10:30. Important: After normal bidding ends, you must be signed-on to the Heritage site to see the bidding option on lots where you qualify for extended bidding.
