Marlins Ring is the Biggest in Baseball History

On a recent road trip that took us from Washington D.C.  to Toronto, Canada. Along the way we passed by the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York. Among the highlights at the Baseball Hall of Fame was the Championship Rings display dating back to the 1930’s to present. The collection of rings obviously  varied from year to year but one ring stood out from all the rest. The Marlins’ 2003 Championship ring was by far the biggest in the entire collection displayed at the Baseball Hall of Fame. Upon further research, it is indeed the biggest in the history of Baseball and most expesive, valued at $40,000 at the time. The ring is made of 14-carat white gold, the 3.5-ounce (99 g) ring featured 229 diamonds, including one teal diamond, and 13 rubies. Other highlights of the Baseball Hall of Fame are Barry Bonds 762 Homerun Ball, a tribute hall for Latin American players, original paintings by Norman Rockwell and much more. See for yourself pictures below. Also see video footage on YouTube.
