This incredible, mint condition 1955 World Series Ring was sold 14 years ago at a Lelands auction for $44,620.61. It could sell for a lot more this time around:

I am not affiliated with this championship ring, or the auction house; I’m just here to blog about the world of championship rings.

The Brooklyn Dodgers won only one World Series when they played in Brooklyn, The year was 1955 and player World Series rings from this year are rare and special. And they sell for a lot of money.

The 1955 World Series rings were made by Dieges & Clust. Dieges & Clust is no longer around, they were acquired by the company Herff Jones.

Not only is Don Zimmer’s World Series ring in mint condition, it also comes with the championship ring box that’s in mint condition too. Unlike today’s huge championship rings that often come with heavy wood and glass presentation boxes, the Dodgers original championship ring box was made of leather (or leather-like materials) and was not designed to stand up to decades of use.

Don Zimmer was a young player on the team, and later became a major league coach and manager. Zimmer is considered a baseball icon.

The company handling the auction is Love of the game Auctions. Here’s a link to their website: http://loveofthegameauctions.com/default.aspx
