1971 Roberto Clemente Pittsburgh Pirates World Championship Ring
This esteemed ring is a Roberto Clemente 1971 World Series salesman's sample Championship ring. Manufactured by Josten’s in 10K gold, this ring is nearly identical to that awarded to this legendary Pittsburgh Pirate player upon the Pirates defeat of the Baltimore Orioles in seven games and the awarding of MVP honors to Roberto Clemente who hit safely in all seven games. Engraved around the perimeter of the ring surrounding a large synthetic diamond is “World Champions Pittsburgh 1971.” On the right shank is an engraved raised banner that reads “Clemente,” below which is a rendition of Three Rivers Stadium in relief, below which is a raised baseball with crossed bats engraved with Clemente’s uniform number “21.” On the left shank is an engraved raised banner that reads “Pirates,” below which is a raised Pirate head logo. On the inside of the ring is stamped “Jostens 10K.” No player better than Clemente represents the 1971 Pirates. A lifetime .317 hitter with four batting titles, Roberto Clemente had exactly 3,000 hits over the course of his career. So beloved was he that the five year mandatory eligibility waiting period was waived and he was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1973 after his tragic death in 1972. Comes with a certificate that unconditionally guarantees the authenticity of this item.
