Description

    1988 Magic Johnson Salesman's Sample Los Angeles Lakers Championship Ring. Magic Johnson was the ringleader of Showtime and inspired a generation of basketball fans. His career coincided with Larry Bird's and the two rivals were credited with all but saving the sport of basketball. Before Magic surfaced in L.A., basketball was barely surviving and the NBA Finals were tape delayed. All was well in the city of angels in 1988 as the Lakers became the first NBA squad to secure back-to-back titles since the 1969 Celtics.

    This salesman's sample mirrors what Magic was given for his contributions to the Lake Show. Created out of ten karat gold (40.03 grams) and surrounded in CZ's is this size eleven ring. "1988 World Champion Lakers" surrounds the CZ stones on front. "Back to Back 1987 1988" and a colored NBA logo are announced on one shank while the opposite side reveals "Johnson Lakers 4 Pistons 3" along with a purple Lakers logo. "7740-7" is notated on the inside. We must report the manufacturer's marking has been scratched out on the inner band.


    Guide Value or Estimate: $3,000 - $5,000.
