2002 Anaheim Angels World Series "A" Ring
When the Angels won their first world championship in 2002, they scored the heavenly bling-bling to prove it. Brilliant ring is a divine find because no one associated with the team was about to part with theirs. Salesman's sample is the "A" type -- the top of the line --- given to the players, who certainly were not jaded by the ruby-inlaid A with a halo around it, surrounded by diamonds. Near-mint, it is more a museum piece than ring, with the 10-karat gold band's panels blessed by intricate designs. On one side, the World Series trophy sitting in Edison Field is accompanied by the inscriptions "Angels and "1st Championship." On the other side, "2002 World Series" is engraved with the team's record, 99-63, and "sample," where the player's name would go. Rings had an appraisal value of $15,000 when they were issued. The Angels began the 2002 season 6-14, their worst start ever, but finished with Darin Erstad catching a flyball in Game 7 of the World Series against the Giants at Edison Field. The 4-1 victory ended 42 years of franchise futility.
