Lot 387: 1975 Bayamon World Series Ring (Kimbro)
Since 1949 (except for 1961-70 when Cuba pulled out its state-run team) the Campeones de Caribe, or Caribbean World Series, has determined the Latin Kings of "beisbol." Puerto Rico won the distinction in '75 when the Vaqueros de Bayamon gave the country its 2nd straight title, following up Criollos de Cagua's championship of the year before. This stunning 10K gold ring signifying the victor, presented to a member of the winners whose name is engraved on the inner band, boasts a deep ruby stone at the center surrounded by "Bayamon Baseball Club" around the corona. "1975 Vaqueros" is on ione shank along with an engraved horse and rider, and "Campeones del Caribe" is on the other shank with a crossed-bat and balls motif. Size 10.5. Mild tarnishing on topside, band near flawless.
