The Boston Red Sox won their first of three World Series Championships in four years in 1915. Offered is a beautifully crafted medallion and original ribbon presented to Larry Gardner, whose contributions helped the Championship team. Championship rings for World Series victory first debuted in 1922 and became the standard format in 1926. Before that time, pendants and watch fobs were the most common player prize. This elegantly-crafted representation utilizes design features effectively identical to those found on the 1911 Athletics and 1914 Braves models, suggesting that all were crafted by the same jeweler in that era. The 1.25" diameter medallion hangs from a golden link that is attached to another by means of a black ribbon and reads “WORLD’S CHAMPIONS 1915” in a circular pattern around a baseball diamond and carefully hand engraved on the back reads “W.L GARDNER”. The front of the ribbon shows signs of fraying. The diamond has been replaced. Sourced directly from the Gardner family. Accompanied by a Gardner family LOA.
