Before they captured two World Series crowns in three years from 2010-12, the 2002 San Francisco Giants came excruciatingly close to winning their first championship since the franchise moved West from Manhattan in 1957. Leading three games to two, San Francisco held a seemingly comfortable 5-0 lead with eight outs to go in Game 6 before crumbling and eventually losing the decisive seventh game to the Angels. Livan Hernandez - who had won a World Series championship ring with the Marlins five years earlier - received this Size 12.5 genuine diamond ring from the team and it's a beauty, appearing in NRMT condition and in its original presentation box, which features a plaque that reads: "2002 NATIONAL CHAMPIONS GIANTS LIVAN HERNANDEZ." The face of the ring has SF in diamonds set against a black background, with "NATIONAL LEAGUE CHAMPION GIANTS" around the outside. The left panel shows the ballpark, "SAN FRANCISCO" in script and "HERNANDEZ" in bold block letters. On the right are flags that read: "2002 CHAMPS," "NATIONAL LEAGUE," "GIANTS" as well as 17 smaller flags with franchise pennant years listed . "14 KARAT GOLD" is marked inside. Comes right from Hernandez with an LOA hand-signed by the Cuban star. The 2002 World Series marked the fist ever pitting two Wild Card winners, leading baseball purists to the brink of fury.
