Only known ring from 1919 Black Sox World Series is surprisingly affordable
If you’ve got an extra $33,500 lying around, well, sure, you can spend it on a car or put a down payment on a house. But lots of people have cars and houses, and no one in the world (at least as far as we know) has a 1919 World Series ring. Check this out, from the auctioneers at Lelands.com:
Pat Moran’s 1919 World Series Ring was presented to him as manager of the Cincinnati Reds team that “beat” the infamous Chicago Black Sox…. Rings such as this gem are rarest of all. In fact, the same style ring belonged to both Johnny Evers & Rabbit Maranville for their part in the 1914 Miracle Boston Braves’ World Championship. Rings were considered effeminate in this era, hence the rarity. However it is fitting that the manager, the center of the team, would receive a ring.This beautiful piece of jewelry is engraved to P.J. Moran on the inside face and is stamped F.H.Co 14K, while the band is marked 10k.
