Under manager Al Lopez, the 1959 Chicago White Sox finished the season with a record of 94-60 to win the American League pennant by five full games over the Cleveland Indians. Nellie Fox and Luis Aparicio were the team’s catalysts, as Fox batted .306 and Aparicio scored 98 runs while stealing 56 bases. Chicago’s roster also included elder statesmen Larry Doby, Ted Kluszewski and Del Ennis. On the mound, 39-year-old Early Wynn was simply remarkable, finishing with a record of 22-10 on his way to the Cy Young Award. Bob Shaw went 18-6 with a 2.69 ERA. The White Sox ultimately lost the World Series to the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Offered here is a 1959 Chicago White Sox American League championship ring that was presented to Tony Cuccinello, who spent the last three years of his career with the White Sox, hitting .308 in his final season of 1945. This 14K Balfour-manufactured ring features a single round diamond set on a large blue stone. The word “WHITE” appears on one side of the diamond with “SOX” on the other. This was originally a gold ornamentation on the blue stone, but only has remnants of it remaining. Around the bezel setting reads “AMERICAN LEAGUE CHAMPIONS 1959” in relief work. The manufacturer name and 14K mark, along with Cuccinello’s name, are inside the band though partially worn off. This ring is an approximate size 7 ½ and weighs approximately 32.2 grams.
