Description2004 Boston Red Sox World Series Championship Ring. It's hard to believe it's been a dozen years since the the Curse of the Bambino was exorcised by an unprecedented recovery from a three to nothing ALCS deficit to the hated Yankees, followed by a four-game sweep of the National League Champion St. Louis Cardinals. And even though the Sox planted another flag at the top of Major League Mountain just three years later, the 2004 World Championship will reign forever as the most emotional in Fall Classic history, or at least until the Chicago Cubs have their day in the sun.
So, in the same way that the 1919 World Series is printed in the boldest of fonts in the annals of baseball history (though for decidedly different reasons), one can rest assured that they'll still be talking about 2004 long after the last witness is gone. So one need only consider the market trajectory of Black Sox material to anticipate how this gorgeous symbol of New England's most glorious October might perform through the passing of decades.
This ring was presented to a Fenway stadium worker, but we stress that it is visually identical to those earned on the field by Manny, Pedro, Big Papi and the boys. It's a stunner too--after nearly nine decades of waiting, it's little surprise that management spared no expense, crafting a ring simply swimming in diamonds and rubies, and crafted from eighteen karat white gold. The team's ruby-red logo "B" rests in a diamond-studded baseball diamond on the face, ringed with still more diamonds and the those long-prayed-for words, "World Champions." Left shank provides an enameled "sox" logo and the text "Greatest Comeback in History 2004, 8 Straight." Right shank is engraved with the recipient's surname, joined by an image of Fenway Park, the World Series trophy, and the words "4-0 Sweep."
Interior of band is stamped "86 Years, 10-27-04, Josten's 18K ." Measures to a size ten (10). Total ring weight approximately fifty-six grams (56g.). Ring is in Mint condition, housed in its original cherry wood and glass hinged display box.
