Powered by the American league's top two MVP candidates, Cal Ripken, Jr. and Eddie Murray, as well as Series MVP Rick Dempsey, the 1983 Baltimore Orioles won 98 games and the World Series, cruising past the Philadelphia Phillies in five games. The winners earned championship rings such as this size 9 model, which reads: "1983 WORLD CHAMPIONS" on the face with the Orioles logo set across a diamond-crusted center. The left shank pictures the Series trophy and the name "BOWMAN." The right shank reads: "WORLD SERIES 1983" and features the bird mascot swinging a bat with a crown on his head. The ring has been worn but is in EX condition. It comes with an LOA from the daughter of the recipient, longtime scout Joe Bowman, who pitched in the major leagues between 1932 and 1945. Hall of Fame ace Jim Palmer made history during the "I-95" Series, becoming the first pitcher - and still the only one to date - to win a World Series game in three different decades. The city of Baltimore would not win another title in any sport until the Ravens captured the 2000 Super Bowl.
