BOSTON, – A 1955 Brooklyn Dodgers World Series ring sold for $45,049 at RR Auction on June 21.
The 14K white gold ring made by Dieges & Clust was presented to the Dodgers visiting clubhouse attendant George Grafton. The ring features a genuine diamond set into a dark Dodger-blue stone, encircled with “Brooklyn World Champions.”
This stunning 14K gold ring is the same type that was presented to the players on the 1955 Dodgers squad, which included legends like Jackie Robinson, Duke Snider, Pee Wee Reese and Roy Campanella.
The Dodgers’ triumph over the New York Yankees in seven games was the first and only World Series won during the team’s time in Brooklyn.
“It’s a truly superb ring from a historic World Series,” said Bobby Livingston, executive vice president at RR Auction.
Highlights from the sale also included a Brian Piccolo game-worn Chicago Bears road jersey that sold for $25,725; a Babe Ruth signed baseball, $21,450; a 2007 Boston Red Sox World Series ring, $17,400; and 1895 N300 Mayo’s Cut Plug baseball card featuring Hall of Famer Ed Delahanty, $16,414.
“We are thrilled with the results from our first auction dedicated strictly to sports memorabilia with plans already underway for the next to take place in December,” added Livingston.
