1972 Oakland Athletics World Championship Ring

1972 Oakland Athletics World Championship Ring

This rare and treasured prize by Jostens was presented to a member of the 1972 World Champion Athletics front office, Lloyd Fox. After a 40-year hibernation period, baseball’s original great dynasty, the Athletics finally made it back to the Fall Classic. Despite vintage Pete Rose and the clutch hitting of the future Big Red Machine, the Cincinnati Reds could not overcome the deep pitching staff of the Oakland Athletics, boasting 21 game-winner Catfish Hunter. Top is oval emerald with original cubic zirconium on top (the CZ is the stone adorning all rings presented to the team. This was ordered by Charles Finley who had notoriously tight pockets). Stone surrounded by the words, “1972 World Champions.” Right shank is “Oakland A’s Fox”, left shank is “World Series A’s 4, Reds 3” with “Charles Finley” banner and “S+S=S.” “Lloyd Fox” engraved in script on the inside of the ring. Size 7.5. EX-MT condition.
