1995 Carlos Baerga American League Championship Ring
In 1995, All-Star second baseman Carlos Baerga and the Cleveland Indians took the league by storm, winning 100 regular-season games and eventually the pennant. Composed of a young, dynamic core and supplemented with battle-tested veterans, the Tribe led the American League in almost every offensive category, including runs scored (840), hits (1,461), home runs (207), runs batted in (803), stolen bases (132), batting average (.291) and slugging percentage (.479). Eventually, the Indians would meet their match in the World Series, losing to the equally tough Atlanta Braves in six games, but '95 was a harbinger of diamond dominance that would be sustained by the Tribe through the rest of the '90s. This magnificent, EXMT to NRMT A.L. Championship ring was awarded to Baerga and his teammates for their brilliant '95 campaign. This size-11 beauty has "Cleveland A.L. Champs" surrounding a raised "Indians" set in diamonds. The left panel shows a banner reading "1995", a sign reading "Indians World Series Jacobs Field," with the team's record "100-44" below. The right panel reads "Baerga" above the A.L. eagle and baseball logo with "9" below. There is a Jostens makers mark and "10K" on the inside. Comes with LOA signed by Baerga.
