2006 Detroit Tigers American League Championship Ring in Lucite
In 2006, the Detroit Tigers went 97-62 in the regular season to finish second in the American League Central Division, and then the Tigers went on to win the American League pennant. Presented is a beautiful 2006 Detroit Tigers American League Championship ring that has been encased in Lucite. The ring was given to VIPs. Detroit was managed by Jim Leyland, and that season the Tigers defeated the New York Yankees and the Oakland Athletics to take the AL flag, and the Tigers lost 4-1 in games to the St. Louis Cardinals in the World Series. The Tiger offense was led by HOF catcher Ivan Rodriguez, who hit .300 that year, and Magglio Ordonez, who knocked in 104 runs. The Detroit pitching featured Kenny Rogers and Justin Verlander, who each won 17 games. The Lucite cube is approx. 2.1" on each side, except for where a corner has been deliberately angled to allow the cube to be displayed on a visually appealing, elevated angle. The top of the ring face reads, "American League Champions." In the center of the ring face is the symbolic Detroit Tiger Old English letter "D," surrounded by facsimile diamonds. The right shank of the ring reads,"2006," and under the indicated year is an image of the AL championship trophy. The left shank reads "Detroit" and under that is a Tigers' logo. Inside the ring band is engraved "Nine Full Innings." This striking Lucite encased ring is in NRMT condition.
