The "Bash Brothers" of Mark McGwire and Jose Canseco helped usher in baseball's "long ball" era and this 1988 AL Championship ring was presented to a scout for the nearly-unstoppable Oakland A's. This Josten's size 10.5 beauty is in NRMT condition, with 10K gold and real diamonds adoring the "A's" logo atop a green stone, surrounded by "Oakland" and "1988 American League Champions." The right shank features a script "Athletics" atop their home stadium, Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum, with their total attendance of 2,287,335 below. Under that is "A 4, B 0" indicating the four-game sweep of the Boston Red Sox. The left shank features the name "FRANCHI" for the scout it was issued to above the traditional "A's Elephant" logo which was reinstituted that season after a 25-year absence. In original case, this is a beautiful and stylish piece of jewelry. 32.9g
