Description



Back in 1876, William Hulbert convened with several owners of the National Association to discuss the failing circuit, beset by gamblers, drunken behavior and faltering franchises. To maintain the status of the league, Hulbert organized the new National League. The NL was to have a conformed schedule, little toleration for rowdy behavior by the players and an agenda to eliminate gambling. The fate of the National League forever changed. Marking the 60th anniversary of its formation, the Philadelphia Phillies forged 10K-gold rings for their players and front-office personnel. This is one of those original gold gems. The beautiful size-10 ring is engraved with the initials "P.M.W." on the inner band. Having surpassed the 140th anniversary of the National League, only memories remain of that moment in the game’s history. This time-transcending ring is exceedingly rare, if not unique, and could represent the only chance to acquire it at auction. EX-MT with nice blue enamel.
