Produced many years ago in the likeness of the rings presented by the Baseball Hall of Fame to new inductees, a practice which began in the 1960s, this is a sample ring as opposed to a ring actually presented to Ruth upon his induction. This sample is what Babe Ruth's ring would have looked like had the practice been in place in 1936. The exact year of this ring’s production is unknown, but probably dates to the time of the first production of Hall of Fame induction rings. Cast in 10K yellow gold, around the top perimeter of this size 11 ring is “Baseball Hall Of Fame” in relief. On the top center is a black stone with gold baseball on top. On the right shank is a banner in relief that reads “Outfielder,” below which in relief is a rendition of the Cooperstown building, below which in relief is a banner that reds ”The National Baseball Hall of Fame.” On the left shank in relief is a banner that reads “Ruth, below which is a baseball with crossed bats in relief, below which is a banner in relief that reads “Elected 1936.” The inside of the ring is stamped “10K” with hallmark. Minimal wear, ring is in EXMT-NRMT condition.
