2007 Colorado Rockies National League Championship Player's Ring (70 Diamonds)
Starting Bid - $2,500.00, Sold For - $6,517.50
2007 Colorado Rockies National League Championship ring awarded to outfielder Sean Barker. Complete with its original presentation box. The design of the ring incorporates seventy small diamonds on the top, both surrounding and inlaid within an interlocking "CR." The lettering around the bezel reads "National League Champions." One shank features the Rockies team logo and is lettered "Rocktober - 21 of 22 Wins" above the logo and "WS 07" below it. A Major League Baseball logo also appears at the base of the shank. The opposite shank features the National League logo in the center and the name of the recipient, "Barker," above it. Also featured on the shank is a banner reading "First Pennant," the year, "2007," and the Rockies' regular-season record "90-73." Engraved on the interior band is "Intergold 10K." 2007 marked the first-ever World Series appearance by the Colorado Rockies, making this a highly desirable souvenir from that historic season. This is only the second 2007 Colorado Rockies National League Championship ring we have ever offered. The previous example appeared as Lot 1130 in our 2012 auction and sold for $9,480. However, that prior offering was issued to a Rockies front-office executive. This example is much more desirable in the eyes of collectors because it was presented to a rostered player. Sean Barker debuted with the Rockies on June 6, 2007, and only appeared in three games with the club. Those three games with the Rockies also represent the totality of his Major League career. While that short three-game stint will never merit Barker a pension, it was more than enough to warrant the presentation of this rare piece. Near Mint to Mint condition. Size: approximately 10.5. Weight: 45 grams. Reserve $2,500. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $6,517.50
