This fabulous ring comes from the last time the Cincinnati Reds won the World Series in 1990. The team was led by Hall of Fame shortstop Barry Larkin and legendary manager Lou Piniella, and featured five All-Stars including Larkin, Jack Armstrong, Chris Sabo, Rob Dibble and Randy Myers. Acquired from the Mets in exchange for John Franco, Myers formed a flame-throwing triumvirate of relievers known as "The Nasty Boys," along with Dibble and Norm Charlton. The Nasty Boys were instrumental to the Reds postseason success, as the trio eviscerated opposing batters with raw power. Although the Reds weren't dominant during the regular season - they finished with a record of 91-71 - they certainly were in the postseason. Facing the defending champion and overwhelming favorite Oakland A's in the World Series, the Reds waltzed to a four-game sweep over their better-regarded opponent. This gorgeous ring commemorating their unlikely victory features 11 diamonds comprising a "C" at the center of its face. Around the shimmering display are the words "Cincinnati Reds, World Champions, 1990." One side reads "Swain, wire to wire" while the other says "Sweep" above the Commissioner's Trophy. It is stamped "LBG 10k." The ring is MINT, and comes in its original display box. It was presented to the head groundskeeper of the Reds.
