Description1971 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."
Guide Value or Estimate: $6,000 - up.

Signature Internet Extended Bid: These Auctions are presented via catalog and online. Bidding is taken through our website or via phone. There are two phases of bidding during this type of auction: 1) Normal bidding: Bids are taken up until 10 PM CT the night the auction closes. 2) 30 Minute Ending: On a lot-by-lot basis, starting at 10:00 PM CT, any person who has bid on the lot previously may continue to bid on that lot until there are no more bids for 30 minutes. For example, if you bid on a lot during Normal Bidding, you could participate during Extended Bidding for that lot, but not on lots you did not bid on previously. If a bid was placed at 10:15, the new end time for that lot would become 10:45. If no other bids were placed before 10:45, the lot would close. If you are the high bidder on a lot, changing your bid will not extend the bidding during the 30 Minute Ending phase (only a bid from another bidder will extend bidding). If you are the only bidder at 10 PM, you will automatically win the lot at 10:30. Important: After normal bidding ends, you must be signed-on to the Heritage site to see the bidding option on lots where you qualify for extended bidding.
