Diamonds, rubies, fireworks...all are represented on the very limited edition World Series rings that have been created for the St. Louis Cardinals. They also enlisted the help of one serious collector to make it just right.
It may not be surprising in this day and age of multi-millionaire utility infielders, but the St. Louis Cardinals not only searched high and low to create the perfect World Series ring. They searched a mine for just the right color rubies.
The Redbirds also enlisted the help of one of the country's foremost collectors of World Series rings before giving the green light to the company that made them. The results is quite a sight...and quite a story.
The Cards will pass the rings out in a pre-game ceremony next week and fans attending the game will also receive replicas.
