1981 Pepe Frias Los Angeles Dodgers World Series Ring
Starting Bid - $2,500, Sold For - $9,600
Los Angeles Dodgers 1981 World Series ring issued to infielder Pepe Frias, complete with its original velvet-lined jewelry case. The front of the 14K gold ring, manufactured by Balfour, features a single large diamond set within a blue stone. "Los Angeles Dodgers World Champions" is lettered along the bezel. One shank features the recipient's name ("Frias"), the Dodgers logo, and Frias's uniform number ("36"). The opposite shank displays the year ("1981") and a depiction of the World Series trophy, which is lettered "Los Angeles Dodgers/World Championship Trophy/October 28, 1981." The engraving "Balfour 14K" appears on the interior band. Pepe Frias was a journeyman infielder who ended his nine-year major league career with the Dodgers in 1981. Frias was actually released by the Dodgers on August 31, 1981, but the organization deemed his contributions to the club significant enough to warrant the presentation of this ring the following year. The Dodgers defeated the New York Yankees in six games in the 1981 World Series, with the victory marking the club's first World Championship in sixteen years. The ring remains in Near Mint to Mint condition. Together with its original Balfour jewelry case (3.5 x 2.5 x 1.25 inches; Ex-Mt). Size: approximately 10.75. Weight: approxmiately 30 grams. Reserve $2,500. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $9,600
