1948 Cleveland Indians World Championship Ring

1948 Cleveland Indians World Championship Ring

Real ring, just like the players received. The Cleveland Indians won 97 games to take the American League pennant in 1948. Lou Boudreau was their player-manager and the shortstop hit .355. Outfielder Larry Doby, the first African-American to play in the American League, was in his second season and reaching his stride as he batted 318. The Indians' pitching staff had Bob Lemon and Gene Beardon each winning 20 games, and Bob Feller won 19. In relief was ageless Satchel Paige, going 6-1 with a 2.48 ERA. Then Cleveland beat the Boston Braves, of "Spann and Sain and pray for rain" fame, by 4-games-to-2, to take the World Series. This is original and was produced in 1948, but has no player name inside. It looks like something was in the band, but we can not make it out. Stamped inside Balfour 10K. Real diamond on the top has a very slight chip. Wording on ring says, "World Champion Cleveland Indians 1948." Original black stone on top, overall EX-MT condition.
