    Description

    1989 Oakland Athletics World Series Championship Ring. The victor's prize for a Fall Classic that is immortalized in baseball history as "The Earthquake Series" for the Loma Prieta earthquake that struck just prior to the start of the third game, necessitating a ten-day delay in the contest. The Athletics were shaken but not stirred, however, picking up right where they had left off to complete their sweep of the cross-bay rival San Francisco Giants.

    Presented here is the ring awarded to Frank Ciensczyk, who served for almost three decades as the A's clubhouse and equipment manager. A large diamond rests at the center of a green stone on the face, ringed by twenty smaller diamonds and raised text announcing "Oakland Athletics World Champs." Total diamonds: 105 points. Left shank bears the owner's surname above a classic elephant logo waving a "World Series Champs" flag and text recounting the four to nothing sweep. Right shank reports "1989 World Series Battle of the Bay," above a miniature World Series trophy. Band measures to a size eleven (11) and is stamped "10K Jostens." Proud wear evident, but ring still presents nicely, in Josten's ring box. Original purchase LOA.
