Minnesota Twins World Series ring commemorating the club's 1987 World Championship over the St. Louis Cardinals. The front of the 10K gold ring features fifteen diamonds set within the letter "M," which in turn rests on a blue stone. "Twins World Champions" is lettered around the perimeter in relief. The left shank displays the year, "1987, a representation of the 1987 World Series trophy, and the result of the Series "M-4 - SL-3," all in relief. The right shank features the name "Dunn," the Twins logo, and the American League logo, each in relief. Jim Dunn was not a player but received this World Series ring in honor of his contributions to the team's success as a front office executive for the Twins. "10K Jostens" is engraved on the interior. The Twins defeated the St. Louis Cardinals in seven games in 1987 to capture their first World Championship since 1924, when the team was located in Washington. The 1987 Series was also historic in that it marked the first time in history that the home team won every game (since that time it has happened twice more, in 1991 and 2001). The ring displays light wear and is in Near Mint condition. Together with its rarely seen original wood presentation case inscribed to "Jim Dunn." Reserve $1,000. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $4,994
