1992 Atlanta Braves National League Championship Ring

Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $2,938

This stylish 10K gold ring, one of the most distinctive and impressive ever produced by Jostens, was issued to a staff member of the Atlanta Braves in commemoration of the club's 1992 National League Championship. The front of the ring displays forty small diamonds incorporated into a baseball design, while the bezel reads "1991 Braves - National League Champions." The right shank features the recipient's last name, "Wilder," his job designation, "Staff," and a depiction of the 1992 World Series logo. The left shank features the Braves team logo along with the club's 1992 season record, "98-64," and attendance "3,077,400." Above the Braves logo it reads "91-92 Back to Back National League Champions." Both "10K" and "Jostens" are engraved on the interior band. Produced during an era when gaudiness reached new heights in championship rings, this example stands out as one of the most artistically sophisticated and classic designs of all Championship rings. This is the first 1992 Atlanta Braves Championship ring we have ever offered. The Braves may have fallen just short in both of their World Series attempts in 1991 and 1992, but the club certainly hit a home run with regard to this seldom-seen ring. Near Mint condition. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000+ SOLD FOR $2,938
