    Description

    1971 Pittsburgh Pirates World Championship Ring. Eleven seasons after Bill Mazeroski brought a thunderous close to the 1960 Fall Classic, the Steeltown sluggers swashbuckled their way back to the World Championship with another seven-game nail-biter. The club was anchored once again by its 1960 hero and fellow Hall of Famer Roberto Clemente, each of whom earned a ring identical in design to this model, which was presented to a scout instrumental in assembling the Championship squad.

    A genuine diamond anchors the design of the face, serving as the nucleus for text reporting, "World Champions, Pittsburgh 1971." Left shank reveals the word "Pirates" above an image of one, while right reports "King" to identify the original recipient. Interior band is stamped "Josten's 14K." Size ten and a half (10.5). Weight is thirty grams (30 g.).

    Ring exhibits moderate wear and is housed in original hinged case engraved with the recipient's initials and affixed with a brass plate announcing, "Pittsburgh Pirates, World Champions, 1971."
