81378: 2008 Tampa Bay Rays American League Championship
2008 Tampa Bay Rays American League Championship Ring. One of the greatest underdog teams ever to claim a Major League pennant, the lowly Rays had only once failed to bring up the rear of the American League East before suddenly, shockingly outpacing both the Yankees and Red Sox juggernauts, and riding that remarkable wave all the way through the American League Championship Series. Though the team would fall in five World Series games to the Philadelphia Phillies, their presence in the Fall Classic was an astounding achievement, and any lover of the underdog should be drawn to this AL Championship jewelry. It was presented to the team receptionist, whose surname appears on the left shank along with the team logo and a 97-65 team record, an almost exact inversion of their 2007 tally. Right shank makes note of this debut American League Championship. Ring's face provides "Rays" logo on a diamond studded baseball diamond, ringed by the words "American League Champions 2008." The ten karat gold ring weighs just over forty-two grams, with .15 carat weight of diamonds. Size six. Original hinged wooded box display box is included.
