Here’s a look at the Mets current collection of World Series and Championship rings:
Jostens announced this week that they have been awarded the assignment to create the championship rings to celebrate the New York Mets’ 2015 National League Championship.
Mets’ management have been collaborating with the Jostens Championship design team including Josten’s Master Jeweler to design and produce the championship rings for the ball players and key members of the organization.
The championship rings are due to be presented in April (gee, that’s next month!).
“Jostens is honored to once again work with the New York Mets to create a ring that commemorates their National League Championship,” said Chris Poitras, vice president, Jostens. “This gives us an opportunity to design a truly unique ring to help tell the story and celebrate the Mets historic season. We look forward to presenting the rings and seeing the entire organization’s reaction.”
Unlike their cross time rivals, the Yankees, the Mets have a lot less championship rings. While the Yankees have only used Balfour for decades on their World Series rings and American League championship rings, the Mets have been much less steady.
In 1969, The Mets chose Jostens to make their very first World Series ring.
Four years later, when they lost to the A’s in the World Series, the Mets picked Balfour to make the 1973 National League championship ring.
In 1986, when the Mets won their second World Championship, they stuck with Balfour for that year’s World Series Ring.
And finally, back in 2000, the during the team’s last appearance in the fall classic, the Mets picked Jostens to make their 2000 National League championship ring.
