World Championship Rings


World Series rings are awards given to every player in Major League baseball who has won the World Series. Started in the 1922 World Series when rings were given to the members of the winning team, the New York Giants, courtesy companies like Tiffany& Co or Balfour, they have grown in stature and size. They flaunt the team’s logo in precious stones like diamonds and rubies and are set in 14 karats white gold. Teams buying their own members have a system of classification with the grandest rings for their top players and watered down versions for players lower down the rank and team employees. While the first rings had a couple of diamonds, the modern-day version has over 200 diamonds!

Valuable Sports Memorabilia

It is also considered by fans as valuable sports memorabilia that can be auctioned or sold at will. Sites like eBay host such items, and many a player in want of money have sold his ring and made thousands of dollars. Museums have replicas as exhibits and there is a reckoning of who has won the most number of rings. Yogi Berra has won the most number of rings at 15!

Like baseball, there are several professional, semi-professional, amateur, college, and high school sports. Basketball, Super Bowl Football have all got their championship awards in the form of these rings which are coveted by everyone, but unfortunately, can be enjoyed only by those players and their teams who win the year’s championship.

Teams are also made up of fans, who root for their beloved players, shouting themselves hoarse and cheering them to victory. So, when someone came up with the idea that these fans too should be rewarded with their own championship rings, it was implemented by a few companies who dedicated their time, effort, knowledge, and expertise in making exact replicas of the World series championship rings, as shown, as exuberant, and as ‘obnoxiously over the top’ as the originals.

FIFA The Championship rings of some of the major tournaments and leagues these companies look at replicating are

  • MLB- World Series- (Baseball)
  • NFL – Super Bowl (Football),
  • NHL-Stanley Cup (Hockey),
  • CFL – Grey Cup (Canadian Football)
  • NCAA (Basketball)
  • NASCAR (Auto racing)

Since every year there has been a winner in these games, the variety is mind-boggling and one can order the year and that team’s ring for oneself. It is a passion only fans can understand and there are thousands out there!
