It was a long drought after moving from San Francisco but San Francisco Giants World Series rings are now a common sight–on the hands of players and on the hands of fans who’ve been lucky enough to score Giants replica World Series rings during stadium giveaways. Their 2012 title made it two titles in three years for Bruce Bochy’s squad. Their 2010 World Series ring was the first since 1954, when they still played at New York’s Polo Grounds. It was the series highlighted by the famous back to the plate basket catch in deep center field by Willie Mays.
Prior to that there were triumphs in the early 20th century, long before the arrival of championship rings. When you’re looking for Giants World Series rings, it’s rare to find anything but those crafted in the modern era.
Although they would indeed play in other World Series since then, they just were not victorious. Perhaps the most notable one was the 1989 World Series that started shaking due to the Loma Prieta earthquake at Candlestick Park.
The 2010 season was a thrill for San Francisco. It was a time of recovery for Giants fans, who were hearing on nearly a daily basis that their controversial home run king, Barry Bonds, may have earned a tainted record. San Francisco baseball fans were hoping for a better way to see their city in the national headlines . . . and they certainly got it. The Giants went 92-70 in the regular season, winning their division by two games over the Padres.
