American and National League Championship Rings

Collectors looking for value might consider American and National League Championship rings.  While often overlooked, these rings are often attainable for far less than a World Series ring.

Salesman’s sample rings can usually be found for less than $2,000.  Authentic league championship rings vary in price, depending on the team (Yankees, Red Sox and Mets rings often sell for a premium).  Rings from less popular teams might be a good starting point.  For authentic rings, the value also depends on the name of the original owner.  Non-field personnel who are awarded rings will often sell them because of the value.  Three or four thousand dollars means a lot more to someone making an average or slightly above average income than it would to a player making millions each year.

Usually a lot more subtle than their World Series ring brothers, league championship rings are still nice.  Teams don’t want to be overly flashy, but they still want to commemorate a great season.  They are designed much like a Series ring, with a theme representing philosophies of the team.

A league championship is nothing to sneeze at, of course, even though players may look back at the year as a ‘what if’.  Presentation ceremonies are usually held at a home game during the first week of the season following the league championship as a springboard to the new campaign.

American and National League Championship rings are a great way to collect baseball memorabilia, both for their uniqueness and slightly more affordable nature when compared to World Series, Hall of Fame or All-Star rings.
