The 1989 World Series, the first all-Bay Area classic - may well rank as the most unforgettable Series ever. As the Candlestick Park throng awaited introduction of the lineups, an earthquake measuring 7.1 on the Richter scale rocked the Bay Area. The Candlestick press box swayed, the ballpark shook and electric power stopped. Amazingly, fans, players and the media remained generally calm and even exhibited some lightheartedness. But when reports of death and destruction around the area became known, the matter of winning and losing, seemingly so important an hour earlier, lost all relevance. The ten-day postponement and twelve-day gap in games were the longest in World Series history and marked the first interruption for anything other than inclement weather. When play resumed the A's continued their dominating style and swept the SF Giants 4 games to 0. We are pleased to offer the championship ring issued to the Oakland A's. This ring was made for an A's employee and bears his name on one of the shanks. The top of the celestrium ring has a large CZ with 20 smaller CZ's around it and the inscription "World Champs, Oakland Athletics". One shank displays the 1989 World Series logo and trophy below. The other shank has the employee name and the famous Athletic's elephant holding the flag "World Series Champs" in his trunk. Grades NM overall. Also included with the size 11 ring is a letter from the employee and the original box.
