Description


Shea Stadium was constructed for the 1964 season, and the New York Mets issued commemorative rings to honor this new stadium opening. Marked 10K "Balfour" on the inside of the band, the rings also has the mascot "Mr. Met" on one side, and the stadium on the other, both in raised relief. The top has two tiny rubies and a diamond set above the Mets logo and the bridge to Flushing. This ring is extremely high quality and had a very limited distribution. Kiner was there from the beginning as part of the Mets broadcast team, and this ring is his personal copy. It appears to never have been worn and was likely stored away for the past 50+ years. Near Mint to Mint condition. Full LOA from University Archives (John Reznikoff), cert. #11077.
