Description

More than four decades on, the '73 A's remain the last team in MLB history with a trio of 20-game winners: Catfish Hunter (21), Ken Holtzman (21) and Vida Blue (20). Hunter and Holtzman also chipped in 3 of Oakland's 4 World Series wins in their 7-game victory over the Mets, while Reggie Jackson cemented his Mr. October status with 1 HR, 1 triple, 3 doubles, 6 RBIs and 3 runs. This Jostens 14K-gold, size 11-1/2 ring hails from that middle championship in the A's Three-peat dynasty. It features an oval green stone, the name "HARRIS" on one shank, and "S+S=S" (Charlie Finley's motto "Sweat plus sacrifice equals success") on the other shank. EX-MT/NM condition. An accompanying 1998 purchase LOA reads, in part, "I bought this ring at an auction run by the City of San Bernardino, California which was run by the Sheriff's department on April 18, 1998." Also included is a rare wooden presentation box (3-1/2 x 3-1/2 x 2-1/2", EX) featuring a brightly stenciled "1973 A's World Champions" design. This item has a reserve (estimated value $3,500 - 7,500).
