After a 44-year absence, the Subway Series finally returned to the Big Apple, matching the ever-present New York Yankees against their cross-town rivals, the New York Mets. The Yanks prevailed in five hard-fought games that saw the Amazin's threaten with the tying runs on base or at the plate at the end of all four losses. In a classy move, Mets brass awarded all their full-timers with NL championship rings like this. It's 10 k and designed by Balfour with real diamonds and engraved presentation box with team logo and the words: "NATIONAL LEAGUE CHAMPIONS 2000." This particular ring belonged to longtime promotions director James Plummer, who died in 2008. At the ring's center is the "NY" logo, filled with actual sparkling diamonds, set upon a larger deep blue stone. There are also diamonds on each corner. Surrounding it is raised text that reads: "2000 NATIONAL LEAGUE CHAMPIONS". On the right shank is an intricate design with four pennants, each from a Championship season: "1969", "1973", "1986" and "2000" along with the words: "SUBWAY SERIES." On the left side is a raised image of the New York skyline with "PLUMMER STAFF," "AMAZIN' AGAIN" and "METS" above and below. Condition of the ring and box is MT. The box measures 6" wide, 4" long and 5" deep.
