Jesse Haines 1926 World Series Championship Ring
Jesse Haines performed brilliantly for the St. Louis Cardinals in four World Series, going 3-1 with a 1.67 ERA, and batting .444 with a home run and four RBI's. He was known early in his career for his fastball, but relied later on his unusual knuckleball, which he actually gripped with his knuckles instead of his fingertips. "Pop" was a Cardinal fan favorite, and he held most of the franchise's pitching records until Bob Gibson came along. The Cardinals won the 1926 pennant, as Haines went 13-4. In the World Series, he shut out the Yankees 4-0 in Game Three, hitting a two-run homer to help his own cause. He started the seventh and deciding game and allowed only two runs through six innings, but a blister forced him out of the game. Haines got the win, and the Cardinals were World Champions. This extremely rare ring is from that special World Series victory, and it is an absolute stunner. "St. Louis Cardinals World Champions 1926" encircles the outer edge of the ring. In the center, an exquisite diamond. On each shank there are two cardinals perched on a branch. Inside of ring is inscribed, "Presented to Jesse J Haines By Base Ball Commissioner". The entire ring is incredibly textured and alive. Size 6-1/4 ring (pinkie) is unlike just about any you will ever come across.
