    Description

    Presented to manager of AAA Pawtucket farm club

    2007 Boston Red Sox World Series Championship Ring. It took eighty-six years of suffering to bring "The Curse of the Bambino" to a close, but only three more for the Boston Red Sox to repeat as kings of the baseball world. Facing a white-hot Colorado team that had won twenty-one of its previous twenty-two contests going back to the close of the regular season, the Sox swept Colorado in four straight to earn the Championship hardware presented here.

    This "A type" ring, issued to Pawtucket Red Sox manager Ron Johnson, is identical in design and construction to those presented to the likes of Beckett, Big Papi and the rest of the playing roster, a massive, jewel-encrusted stunner weighing seventy-seven grams and appraised at $17,700 (paperwork included) without consideration of its collectible value. Certainly, to millions of New Englanders, this is a keepsake worth far more than its weight in gold and jewels.

    Ruby-red "sox" form a team logo on the ring's glimmering face, with diamonds and synthetic custom-cut sapphires sharing space with "World Champions" engraved text. Still more diamonds line the perimeter, with total diamond weight calculating to 2.33 carats. A miniature Fenway Park adorns the left shank, with text announcing "7th World Series Championship, 4-0 Sweep." Right shank features a team logo "B" flanked by twin World Series trophies, and the text, "Johnson, Min Lg 2007." Interior band is engraved "Boston Red Sox, 10-28-07," and stamped "Jostens 14K." Band measures to a massive size fourteen. Mint condition. Original wood and etched glass hinged display box is included.

    *A donation of $100 to the American Red Cross is required to attend the Live auction.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
