The Texas Rangers received their American League championship rings on Saturday night; next in line are the fans.
The ring given to the fans will look similar to the real deal but will not be made of gold, it will have no diamonds and it's slate-colored. The Rangers will have plenty of the replicas to hand out Monday when the Rangers (3-0) take on the Seattle Mariners (2-1) at the Ballpark.
The player's rings, made by Dallas-based Jostens, were "crafted in 10 karat white gold, the ring prominently features the Rangers “T” logo created in diamonds against a red stone background. The familiar logo is surrounded by 137 round cut diamonds."
"One shoulder of the ring features the flag of Texas set with blue and red stones and 9 round brilliant diamonds. Each ring is personalized with the player’s name. The opposite ring shoulder features a detailed image of Ranger stadium, the American League logo and “Rangers” to incorporate icons that are important symbols of the Texas Rangers legacy."
After hearing that, if the replica just isn't sounding good enough you could always enter the team's raffle for a shot at one of the real ones. You can get one ticket for $5 or three for $10. Tickets can be purchased online at TexasRangers.com or at the Texas Rangers Baseball Foundation kiosk behind Sections 22-25.
At least in the meantime, you can snag one of the replicas tonight. Game time Monday is 7:05 p.m.
