     The 1960 World Series – featuring the Pittsburgh Pirates vs. the New York Yankees – provided one of the most memorable moments in sports history. Tied at three games apiece, the Series went to a seventh and deciding game. With the score tied 9-9, in the bottom of the ninth inning, Pittsburgh’s Bill Mazeroski hit a championship-winning home run off of Yankees pitcher Ralph Terry.

     Presented here is the Pirates 1960 World Series ring given to Dick Schofield. Appearing in 65 games for the Pirates during the 1960 season, Schofield posted a fantastic batting average of .333. He would repeat that mark in the Series, going 1-for-3. The ring’s face features a round diamond set against the backdrop of a relief image of Forbes Field; the surrounding relief reads “PITTSBURGH WORLD CHAMPIONS.” The right shank of the ring features the Pirates “P” as well as two banners, displaying Schofield’s name and number 11. On the other side appears the Pirates logo with banners that read “Pirates” and “1960.” The inside of the band reads “JOSTEN” (the ring producer) and 14K, which is the gold weight. The ring, which shows appropriate wear, weighs 28.8 grams and is approximately a size 9 ½. This is a remarkable piece of history from one of the greatest World Series of all time.
