Last month this championship ring blog wrote that Stargell’s family was feuding over how Willie’s second wife was selling his prized sports possessions:

Willie Stargell SCP 1979 World Series Ring Auction

Now we know how his World Series ring and other awards and memorabilia fared at auction:

During Stargell’s twenty season career with the Pirates, he was a seven time all star, and two time World Series Champion. Of his two World Series rings (1971 and 1979), SCP auctioned his 1979 championship ring. No word was given why his 1971 World Series ring was not part of the auction.

To add even more value to Stargell’s 1979 World Series ring, he was the World Series MVP for the October Classic.

Stargell was a beloved Pirate and inducted into the baseball Hall of Fame in 1988 so it’s no surprise his World Series ring sold for so much money.

The Pirates 1979 World Series ring is considered tiny by today’s championship ring standards. It was designed and crafted by Jostens in 10K solid yellow gold and weighs 32 grams. Today’s World series are 2-3 times as massive.
