King me! Presented here is a coveted piece of regal hardware: the Babe Ruth crown, issued to Juan Gonzalez by the prestigious Maryland Professional Baseball Players Association in recognition of the outfielder's extraordinary career achievements. This not-so-subtle, gold-colored metal headpiece features six diamond-shaped attachments, each ornately decorated with a colorful stone. The center of the 11"-wide crown is comprised of red velvet. At the base is engraved the following: "BABE RUTH CROWN PRESENTED TO JUAN GONZALEZ FOR OUTSTANDING BATTING ACHIEVEMENT 1992 MARYLAND PROFESSIONAL BASEBALL PLAYERS ASSOCIATION." The Rangers star connected on an American League-best 43 homers and drove in 109 runs in 1992, his second full season in the majors. He finished his 17-year career with a .295 batting average, 457 home runs and 1,273 RBI. Rule your realm with this noble accessory. All that's missing is the scepter!
