Description

    1990 Oakland Athletics A.L. Championship Ring. The genuine article, presented to star right-hander Mike Norris, who earned a second place finish in the Cy Young voting a decade earlier despite a better winning percentage, an ERA seven-tenths of a point lower, and thirty-one more strike outs than the victor Steve Stone. This ring marked the end of the line for Norris, whose ten-year Major League career came to a close after its presentation. Crafted from stunning ten karat gold, the design features a tiny elephant with two brilliant cut diamonds weighing approximately .08 carats each, and a third weighing about .15 carats. The diamonds represent three consecutive American League pennants, with the larger diamond representing the 1989 World Championship. "Oakland American League Champions" spans the perimeter. The left shank offers the A's logo, framed by the word "Norris" and notations related to the A.L.C.S. sweep: "A-4 B-0." The right shank pictures Oakland Coliseum in miniature, with the words "1990 Athletics" and the incredible season attendance figure of 2,900,217." The interior band is engraved "10K Jostens." Approximately size nine. A special prize rarely made available in the collecting hobby.
