Ed Lopat earned this 1951 World Championship Ring, his third of five (but the only one he could share with both Mantle and DiMaggio), winning Games 2 and 6 against the cross-town rival Giants. This Balfour 14 karat gold ring features one round diamond (.50 karats), both sides are embossed with the Yankee logo and "Ed Lopat" is engraved inside. The Series wins capped Lopat's best season where he had a 21-9 record, 2.91 ERA and earned his one and only trip to the All-Star Game. While DiMaggio, Berra and Mantle received the majority of attention in the Yankees' five consecutive world championships from 1949-1953, it was the pitching of the Big Three of starters Allie Reynolds, Vic Raschi and Eddie Lopat that provided the foundation of the Bombers' historic run. While Reynolds and Raschi sped fastballs by everyone from Robinson to Williams, "The Junkman" Lopat kept opposing teams completely off balance throwing bending curveballs and darting sliders. Even his manager Casey Stengel said, "He looks like he's throwing wads of tissue paper. Every time he wins a game, fans come out of the stands asking for contracts." But "Steady Eddie" outdid all the wannabes, compiling a lifetime 166-112 record and 3.21 ERA 12 years in the majors. Measurements: Size 10. Condition: Excellent overall condition, minor wear from use.
