This vintage ring was presented to Yankees pitcher Rip Coleman when the New York Yankees won the 1956 World Championship.
The 1956 New York Yankees season, which was managed by Casey Stengel, was the 54th season for the team in New York, and its 56th season overall. The team finished with a record of 97-57, winning their 22nd pennant, finishing 9 games ahead of the Cleveland Indians. The Yankees played their home games at Yankee Stadium. In the World Series, they defeated the Brooklyn Dodgers in 7 games. The Series featured the only no-hitter in Series play, a perfect game, delivered by the Yankees' Don Larsen in Game 5.
This ring comes directly from the Coleman family. Inside is engraved "W.G. Coleman" and is stamped "LGB 14K." The ring's dome is capped off by a diamond, approximately 1 ct. with a slight chip. Both sides of the ring say "1956" above the Yankees top hat and bat logo. Around the dome reads "New York Yankees World Champions." Ring appears to have been sized to an 11 and was worn by Coleman. Still very nice condition with slight wear. Overall, 7/10.
